What You Missed: Smash Fest @ Best Buy!

Last week was AWESOME for StreetPass Long Island members! We were treated to not one, but TWO Smash Bros. demo events at Best Buy in Valley Stream. Long Island’s NoA rep Derek was hosting the event, which allowed Long Islanders to be some of the first to get their hands on the new Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS versions!

The response from fans was HUGE, and the line was so long it wrapped around the store! Kudos to everyone who braved the heat on this crazy line!

Everyone was psyched to see Mega Man’s final smash! SPLI Co-Founder Jeff W. was so excited that he wore his Mega Man helmet to the event!

The first event was held on Wednesday, June 11th in the afternoon/evening. The response was huge, and we were all thankful that there was a second demo event on Saturday, June 14th! The Saturday event was even BIGGER, and the CROSSFIRE Smash Tournaments Team (#TeamXFIRE) even brought in their staff to do live commentary of each round!

Long Island Smasher Samantha M. aka PeachyHime from the E3 Super Smash Bros. Invitational was on the scene to challenge the masses!
SPLI was so psyched to be able to take part in this Long Island event! We hope that NoA and Derek will be able to host more official local events like this in the future!
