Best Buy reveals locations that will offer Nintendo’s E3 game demos

 Wii U Best Buy

Nintendo has recently announced that it has partnered with Best Buy to offer public access to the same Wii U game demos that will be playable at this year’s E3 expo.

While the lineup won’t be officially revealed until Nintendo’s next Direct broadcast on June 11th, we finally have confirmation of the where and the when.

On Best Buy’s official website the company has revealed the dates and locations where the “Nintendo Experience” will be offered, giving gamers the chance to search across the hundred or so participating sites.

The demos will be playable on two different occasions, which can be found below:

  • Wednesday, June 12 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 15 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Regarding the identity of the game demos, Nintendo is expected to include anticipated titles like the new Super Mario 3D platformer, the next chapter in the Mario Kart franchise, and perhaps Sonic: Lost World will make an appearance as well.

Along with the offering of playable demos, Best Buy has also promised special bonuses for like “hot offers” and “Luigi loot” for those who drop by.

The next Nintendo Direct is also expected to address key upcoming titles for the console–like the new Super Smash Bros. release–as well as showcasing additional features and plans for the Wii U. It will be interesting to see what Nintendo unveils during the show, as the Wii U console has taken a hit as the underdog in the next-gen battlefield–but E3 and the new Direct show may give them an edge in the competitive market.

Be sure to drop by Best Buy’s website to find the participating location nearest you, and always remember that this list may change in the next few weeks.
