–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nintendo:

On Dec. 7, Nintendo and Best Buy have a holiday gift at participating locations across the country: hands-on game play featuring Captain Toad, Pikachu and many of the most iconic characters in video games. At select stores, shoppers can play four of Nintendo’s hottest games of the holiday season: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for Wii U, Pokémon Art Academy for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, all of which are now available in stores and in the Nintendo eShop.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker features Captain Toad in his first starring adventure, as he searches for treasure through multiple creative and colorful levels. In Pokémon Art Academy, fans of all ages can learn how to draw their favorite Pokémon characters in 2D using the touch screen of the Nintendo 3DS system. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, all-star characters like Mario and PAC-MAN battle it out in epic arenas inspired by some of the most memorable video games of all time.

Best Buy will be holding a “Nintendo Family Game Demo Day” at over 100 stores this weekend. Consumers will be able to go hands on with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, and Pokemon Art Academy. There will also be giveaways and deals. If you show up at the Culver City store in Los Angeles, there will be a photo-op with Mario.

Best Buy’s “Nintendo Family Game Demo Day” will take place between 11 AM and 4 PM. Check out this link for a lineup of participating locations.


Best Buy is running a pretty great deal on Wii U games at the moment as part of a new Cyber Monday sale.

If you buy one title with the retailer, you can get a second for 40 percent off. The selection includes Super Smash Bros., Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, and more.

You can find the deal here. All games are currently available for shipping and in-store pickup, though this may change throughout the day.

It was recently revealed that the Shulk amiibo figure will only be available at GameStop. As expected, that’s not the only retailer-exclusive figure. Best Buy confirms in a new PR announcement that the amiibo for Meta Knight will only be sold through its store.

If you head on over to your local Best Buy, you may spot a demo for Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. It comes with three levels – two standard courses, and a third one featuring the dragon boss previously shown in trailers. Note that we can’t say for sure how many Best Buy locations currently have the Captain Toad demo.


If you’re planning on purchasing 3DS games anytime soon, you may want to hold off until November. That’s because Best Buy will be holding a “buy 1, get 1 50% off” sale starting November 9 lasting through the entire week.

Best Buy’s ad shows titles like Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Fantasy Life for the deal.

Also on November 9, a few 3DS XL models will be available for $25 off. These include the black, red, and blue models.
