    Nintendo has partnered with electronics retailer Best Buy to present a series of in-store demos for the upcoming Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. next month at select locations nationwide.

    Nintendo's "Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest" will be held at more than 100 Best Buy locations on June 11 from 4:00 to 9:00 p.m. and June 14 from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. local time, giving players a chance to compete in four-person local multiplayer battles. A full list of participating stores is available at Best Buy's website. The event follows up on a similar E3 showcase from last year that gave Best Buy customers an early look at Mario Kart 8.

    The first 70 attendees who pre-order the 3DS or Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. at each event will receive a limited-edition gold coin collectible, in addition to a $5 Rewards Zone certificate upon the game's release. Super Smash Bros. will launch for the Nintendo 3DS this summer, and the Wii U edition will hit retail in the winter.

    A Premium Wii U with two games for £200 is exactly what Nintendo should be talking about.
    And that’s what is available right now from Tesco for those who use a (likely limited time) discount code.
    Tesco Direct is offering the Mario Kart 8 Premium Wii U bundle for £219.99. Use of the code TDX-JGCV at checkout (as per NeoGAF) brings this down to just £200.
    Remember too that as announced yesterday the game will include a code to download one of ten other Wii U titles for free, including Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros and Wonderful 101.
    Interested parties are best advised to act quickly – Nintendo is still charging £299.99 for its exclusive Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle.

    Thinking about jumping into the world of Wii U console ownership? For a limited time, Nintendo's online store is offering refurbished Deluxe bundles for $200, knocking $50 off the console's regular price.

    The bundle includes a black Wii U 32GB console, Wii U gamepad, pack-in NintendoLand game, adapters for the console and gamepad, a sensor bar for Wii controller compatibility and an HDMI cable. The console also carries a standard one year warranty.

    The only caveat is the bundle is not eligible for Club Nintendo registration, meaning new owners can't earn coins toward special offers available from Nintendo. Though Nintendo says products in the bundle "may have minor cosmetic blemishes, it is guaranteed to be fully functional."

    Nintendo's latest home console is home to some of our favorite exclusives, including 'Best of' titles Super Mario 3D World from 2013 and 2012's ZombiU. Some multiplatform stuff? You may find yourself waiting a little longer than on other consoles.

    Nintendo's recently cleared technical hurdles regarding the Wii U's Virtual Console offerings have a clear result - the company announced plans for Nintendo DS titles to join the Wii U's current offering.

    Nintendo's quarterly financial meeting in Japan, in which Nintendo President Satoru Iwata laid out immediate and longterm plans for the company, also mentioned plans to license Nintendo characters to new partners. Who those partners may be is currently unclear, but the suggestion follows the company's Yoshi Island DLC for Sega's Sonic: Lost World and the recently revealed action game set in The Legend of Zelda universe, Hyrule Warriors.

    Amazon UK and Argos both dropped the Wii U Premium to £180 this week, and if that's a familiar-sounding figure it's because it matches the launch price of the Wii. Both retailers have the 32GB Wii U model, complete with Nintendo Land, priced £120 less than the £300 Nintendo itself is asking for, and what most retailers sold the Wii U Premium for at launch.

    Nintendo UK has several Premium SKUs at £250, including the better valueNew Super Mario U bundle, and Amazon and Argos more or less price match those bundles. There's been no official word, but perhaps these cuts indicate that Nintendo UK wants to phase out the Nintendo Land bundle, just asNintendo of America did last year.

    In contrast, Zavvi taking £20 off the Xbox One is a fresher development for Microsoft's console. Europe's Day One editions of the Xbox One came with free copies of FIFA 14 or Forza 5, so it's arguable £410 better reflects Zavvi's game-less bundle. In any case, other retailers aren't following suit at this stage, so we're not sure what to make of it yet.

    The Xbox One enjoyed a strong start at retail, racking up 3 million worldwide sales before the close of 2013. The Wii U reached 3 million shipped in a similar time frame, but that early success dried up in 2013, and Nintendo slashed the console's fiscal year forecasts recently from 9 million to 2.8 million - if that figure proves accurate, Nintendo will have shipped 6.2 million units by March 2014.
