By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - List included in this article! The article title is in all-caps to convey my HYPE!!

After we memorialized its predecessor, we now know where we can play Super Smash Bros. 4 at Best Buy. Here's the list, right from their site, with the times. Apparently, Canada has it too. Here's their list.

I also painstakingly recreated the list at the bottom of this article with no drop-down stuff for your copy-pasting pleasure.

This news was enough to pretty much give me super-charged energy despite not getting much sleep. So here's Mike's Song from Brawl that pretty much describes my excitement.

To play, visit a participating store:
• Wednesday, June 11 from 4 p.m.–9 p.m.
• Saturday, June 14 from Noon–5 p.m.
Be one of the first 70 attendees at each event to pre-order Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U and receive a rare collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin (one per customer, while supplies last). You will also get a $5 My Best Buy™ certificate when you pick up your fully paid game upon release.
Not sure if I want to pre-order it and we don't know what the coin looks like, but sounds awesome, like Pokémon TCG-like coin. And it's gold! While New Super Mario Bros. 2 drastically devalued the gold coin as a currency, it'll still look cool, right?

Canadian locations are only the first 25 attendees get the gold coin. Guess gold is rarer in Canada. 

UPDATE: It'll be at the Nintendo World Store from June 11 to June 15.  9 AM to 8 PM on June 11 and June 12, 9 AM to 9 PM on June 13 and 14, and 11 AM to 6 PM on June 15.

Here's the full (103 places) list. Use Google Maps or something to know how to get there and find the closest to you. These are only in the United States:

Done! Only took me 13 loops of Mike's Song.

If you want to use this list, please credit KoopaTV and link to this article. Thanks, and hope one is near you!

If there are any errors, please tell me. Best Buy's own site had typos on location names, and they have a drop-down option for Nevada but with nothing listed there.

The implication here is that Ludwig lives near one of these many locations. He'll be there on Wednesday, Saturday, or both.

Ludwig was there on both days. Read all about it here.
Next year brings another list of new Best Buy partnerships.

    1. And what's 'Mike's Song' anyway?


      Listened to that to get my fingers to move faster.

  2. Also, what is the Guest Art of this place even about?

    1. Stuff that goes into the Artistic Corner, but for guest-submissions.

      In other words, artistic stuff submitted by readers or anyone who isn't KoopaTV staff.

      Artistic stuff described as... non-commentary. :p

    2. So it's basically non commentary stuff by guests?

    3. Yes. :p

      You see the categories:

      Artistic Corner; Enlightenment Movement; Gaming Commentary; General; Interviews; KoopaTV; Reaction Logs; Reviews

      It's a way to divide those into Guest categories. Guests by definition can't submit KoopaTV-category stuff since those are site-updates or whatever. Everything else besides "Artistic Corner" and "Interviews" constitutes as commentary. I don't see a guest submitting an interview, so they get a parallel Artistic Corner. :p

      KoopaTV supports artistic works off videogames, because it shows that the videogame has good enough... characters or whatever that it excites the fans to make them want to show their fandom of the game. It adds value to the game experience.

      Put another way: I've written a fan-fiction, Events of Star World. It's based primarily off the Mario series (with... several crossovers) and was written after Superstar Saga and The Thousand-Year Door dropped onto the scene. Those RPGs have strong characters and environments, so me writing based off that says something good about those games.
      Nowadays you have stuff like Sticker Star. You don't see fan-fiction or artwork based off Sticker Star, because it was purposefully made to not have any characters or story. So it doesn't benefit from fan-added value.

    4. Ok. But what do you mean by 'artistic works off video games'? That's something I don't understand. How is basically anything other than commentary 'artistic'? I could say *Insert game name* is the best because blah blah blah and so on. Artistic: having or revealing natural creative skill: my lack of artistic ability.
      • relating to or characteristic of art or artists: a denial of artistic freedom.
      • aesthetically pleasing: computer programs which produce artistic designs.

    5. "Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is the best game because blah blah blah" is commentary. :p

      Meanwhile, fan-created works is artistic. On KoopaTV, you see the following types of art currently in the Artistic Corner:

      *A sonnet (poetry)
      *Digital art
      *A videogame trailer created by KoopaTV staff
      *Basically a collection of pictures with captions ( consider it a comic)
      *Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! (a VIDEOGAME created by KoopaTV staff)
      *Digital art (to prove a point)
      *Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! strategy guides
      *Digital art
      *Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!! advertisement video
      *George Zimmerman's reveal trailer in Smash Bros. 4 made by KoopaTV staff. I mean, Sakurai.

    6. I'm sorry (Not sure why). I've never used commentary in that context before and also, I was trying to think of something quickly. I get what you mean now.

  3. Nintendo's E3 site still not updated:
