How to join Nintendo's roving band of Smash Bros. players at Comic-Con

Nintendo is bringing Super Smash Bros. to San Diego Comic-Con, and attendees will have the chance to play the 3DS version of the game with a roaming group of Nintendo employees, the company announced.

The "Smash Bros. on Demand" service works like this: after an alert from Nintendo's official Twitter, people tweet their location with a photo to the account. Those selected will then be direct messaged on Twitter and joined by a group of employees carrying the game, who will be moving throughout the convention center to play.

Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U is also at the show, for anyone interested in the console version. The game is expected to launch Oct. 3 for Nintendo 3DS and this winter for Wii U.

Nintendo will have almost 20 games at the convention, which takes place today through July 27. The lineup includes titles such as Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Yoshi's Woolly World and Pokémon Art Academy.

Polygon is on-site at Comic-Con and will be bringing you stories all weekend.
