Nintendo is bringing the E3 Wii U hands-on experience to Best Buy locations in the United States and Canada, company president Reggie Fils-Aime revealed on today’s Nintendo Direct.
“While in previous years we’ve introduced new hardware like Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, this year it’s all about the games,” said Fils-Aime. “In the past, we’ve focused the E3 hands-on experience on those attending the event, but this year, we’re making E3 for the people. And we want to make sure you get the chance to try our game as well.
“We’ve partnered with Best Buy to make it possible for consumers in the United States and Canada to experience select, unreleased Wii U games at more than 100 retail locations during the week of E3. We’ll be able to share more details on what games will be featured and where you’ll be able to play them in the coming weeks.
“We can say now that we’re excited to be able to give you this exclusive glimpse into the future of Wii U. As you’ve seen through Nintendo Direct this year, there’s a lot of great content coming soon to Wii U, and there’s more to share as we head toward E3.”
Stay tuned for more details.
