Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is now available for pre-load on the Nintendo eShop.
Here’s how it works:
- Purchase the game from the Nintendo eShop on your Wii U. Or, you can purhase a download code for the game from participating retailers.
- At the time of pre-purchase, much of the game’s data will be pre-loaded to the purchaser’s Wii U system if it is in Standby mode.
- As soon as the game releases in the Nintendo eShop (at midnight Eastern time on November 21 in North America / midnight on November 28 across Europe / 23:00 on the November 27 in the UK), the final data needed to unlock the full game will automatically download.
The game is also available for pre-order on Nintendo.com. These pre-orders also support pre-load. Within 72 hours of the game’s release, people who have pre-ordered the digital version on Nintendo.com using their Nintendo Network ID will be e-mailed a redemption code to pre-load the game.
