Nintendo is bringing Super Smash Brothers to a tailgate near you!

Seems like kind of a strange partnership but Nintendo hasn’t had a good year (besides the Mario Kart release) so I guess they are trying to get the word out about their next big release in any way possible….

Here’s the info from

Known as The Tailgate Tour, there are nine stops on Nintendo’s trip, beginning with the LSU-Auburn game this coming Saturday, October 4. It’ll then head to a major game each Saturday throughout October and November.

The Wii U game will be available only in demo form, and will be there to “pit fans of the rival school[s] against one another.” Nintendo will keep track of which team’s fans come out on top and post the results on Facebook, subjecting the losers to endless amounts of ridicule. The 3DS version, meanwhile, will be there to let “friends settle their scores.”

The full schedule for the tour is as follows:

  • Oct. 4: LSU at Auburn

  • Oct. 11: Penn State at Michigan

  • Oct. 18: Georgia vs. Arkansas

  • Oct. 25: Alabama at Tennessee

  • Nov. 1: Florida vs. Georgia

  • Nov. 8: Alabama at LSU

  • Nov. 15: Florida State at Miami

  • Nov. 22: Louisville at Notre Dame

  • Nov. 29: Michigan at Ohio State
