Nintendo Reveals Ticket System To Play 'Super Smash Bros.' (Switch) During E3

In the hopes of doing away with long lines at their booth this year, Nintendo has opted for a different approach when it comes to giving players the chance to check out the hit fighting game at the event. Nintendo announced on Wednesday fans will need to reserve play slots to play Super Smash Bros. for Switch before June's show. Nintendo's video presentation will stream on Tuesday, June 12 at 12 p.m. EDT before the convention center opens, so fans will have a clearer idea of what will be playable in Nintendo's booth.

Here's how it works: If you buy a ticket to E3 2018 by May 31 you'll get an email from the ESA-which organises E3-on June 5 with details on how you can reserve an electronic ticket to play. This is the only game that you'll be able to put registrations in for, as well. Nintendo said you'll want to be sure to add e3expo@e3expo.com to your email so it doesn't get associated as junk.

Your ticket will come as a QR code that you can either access on your phone or by printing it out. Whether you've played the game before, are somewhat familiar with Japanese myths, or diving in head-first, the breathtaking artistic expression is guaranteed to satisfy. No on-site registration will be available.

Super Smash Bros. for Switch will without a doubt be one of the biggest, if not biggest, attractions at E3 2018 and Nintendo has some good news to share for fans attending the expo this year with the announcement of a new ticket reservation system. Let us know in the comments section below. "This year our focus is on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game, and we want as many people as possible to give it a try".

Furthermore, with Switch being extremely successful one would assume that Nintendo will finally drop the support for the 3DS, however, Nintendo has noted that it will support 3DS until Switch becomes a one-per-person system.

Attendees who bring their Switch systems to the show and are spotted playing them may be selected by roaming members of the Nintendo team to receive an exclusive, collectible Switch pin (while supplies last). If you want to play Smash, it's an easy process.
