Super Smash Bros. Update: 3DS Demo for Japan

Yesterday night, a demo of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS came out on the Japanese eShop. The demo is completely free, and you can play as one of five characters: Mario, Link, Pikachu, Villager, and Mega Man. The only stage you can play on is Battlefield and it's final destination form, and the game lets you access the Tips menu and also let's you locally download play with your friends.
It's a well made demo, provides about an hour of gameplay, and will get you excited to play the final version.

The game is only 3 days away and less than a month for North America, here's what Masahiro Sakurai had to say about the picture of the day:

"Pic of the day. Users in Japan, you can now download the demo for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS! You can pick among 5 fighters with which to play. The stage is Battlefield, and the rules are fixed. There will be a few items and assist trophies available too. You can battle via local wireless, so have fun battling with your friends. For users outside of Japan, stay tuned for more news about the demo for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Screen shot is from Japanese version."

"The only mode available on the demo version is Smash, but I also left open a feature called Tips. Just remember to tap that button. You'll figure the rest out once you do."

If you live in Japan, what do you think of the demo? We can only hope the rest of the world will receive this demo as well. Please leave a comment below on what you think!
