Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

Recommended Posts

So,

 

I have decided to get the version of the game with the GC adaptor as then I will already have 8 controllers.

I would normally buy from shopto, but because they won't deliver to a separate address from the billing address I cannot really risk them (guessing it won't fit through the letter box). I am not that fussed about getting for Thursday, but getting it for the weekend is important.

 

So, I am not sure who to go for, does anyone have an experience of Amazon or Zavvi in terms of getting games for release day?

They do. If it's not available in your account, just email them.

Usually, yes, but only after 2-3 purchases within 6 months on your card. I have just changed card with them and so they won't for security reasons.

How strange. When I changed my card I got them to change it to my work address. My second purchase on that card went to someone else's house (and now it's back to my work address).

I wouldn't recommend buying from Zavvi these days, they used to be good for Thursday deliveries but the past few times I've ordered from them this year I got my games on the Monday after the weekend. However, they run the Nintendo UK store and since this is a Nintendo game they might deliver it on time. I have my pre order from Zavvi because I'm a cheapskate and hoping they've sorted themselves out for Smash Bros, I'll let you guys know how I get on in December :D

I think Zavvi's speed of dispatch can vary wildly. They are based in Jersey or Guernsey so will always probably take a day longer than a site based on the mainland. I recently ordered a couple of Disney Blu-rays from them and they arrived in two days, but your experience may differ.

Pic of the day. In Stage Builder, you can draw lines on your Wii U GamePad to create stages!! It might not be the easiest stage to battle on, but you can even make stages like this one.

First time Nintendo change the release date to earlier, November is going to literally rip every last penny out of purses, wallets and bank accounts.

But... the Mario amiibo bundle keeps the December 5th date, so I won't get it early at all... Unless I buy two copies...

 

NINTENDOOOOOO!!! :shakehead

You can get the game and Amiibo separately for the same price.

actually, you can get the game and amiibo for cheaper, I had a look for the cheapest ssb bundled with mario, then did the same for them seperately, saving of about £5. I went for a ssb bundle with gamecube adapter, just because it was cheaper than buying a couple of extra pro controllers.. but still.. shop around!!

I'm a collector. The price has absolutely nothing to do with it. I need the bundle. :heh:

 

I'll probably find a way to make it work, though... Might have to buy the game twice and sell/gift the second copy to someone, but even that shouldn't prove too arduous.

I'm pretty sure the game will be in its own Nintendo seal so if you do buy 2 copies of the game you could sell the one that comes with the Amiibo as brand new.

You're not getting Smash Bros? :confused:

Are you crazy?! :heh:

I be referring to the new Pokémon games. ;)

 

So don't worry, you'll be able to kick my ass at Smash on Wii U too. :D

That can only mean one thing, one or two things are going to have to wait at the post office ;)

 

Now would be a perfect time to bring the Pokémon release date forward Ninty! But holy cow this month is going to be expensive.

Awesome news on Super Smash Bros being moved forward a week but if Nintendo don't at least do the same now for Pokemon then I might as well cancel both my pre-orders now for both versions as me and my brothers will almost certainly just be playing Super Smash Bros. :indeed:

 

I think Nintendo have simultaneously done their fans a service whilst shooting themselves in the foot with this one as there are already too many games coming out in November across the various platforms, if you just own Nintendo platforms exclusively then I guess it's good news but even then... Pokemon AND Super Smash Bros on the same day? :blank:

When you said "those games" I didn't think you were referring to both versions of Pokemon lol. All is well. Speaking of Pokemon, with this news I've had to cancel my preorder since nothing can get in the way of me and Smash Bros. :heart:
