Smash Bros. Tournament, Galaxy hands-on at E for All

Smash Bros at E for AllAnyone lucky enough to be heading to E for All — and yes, I just said “lucky enough” — will get a chance to play Super Mario Galaxy and Smash Bros. Brawl.

Nintendo’s PR firm just pinged the Infendo mailbox with the good news… and there’s more:

Nintendo will be showing a huge lineup of cool games for both Wii and Nintendo DS, including the hugely anticipated Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The Oct. 18-22 event at the Los Angeles Convention Center will be the first opportunity for the public to get their hands on these games and take them for a test drive. In addition, Nintendo will host a daily Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament. Competitors get a free Wii-themed T-shirt, and a different T-shirt will be available each day of the show.

Hands-on play time. Tournaments. Free things. A Pokemon “gotta catch ’em all” approach to conference swag. Sounds like a pretty good time to me. I take everything back and offer my apologies to the little consumer show that could.
