During its Nintendo Direct presentation this morning, Nintendo announced that Best Buy stores in the United States and Canada will offer playable demos of the company’s E3 games next month. Participating stores will offer consumers the chance to “play some of the unreleased Wii U games featured at E3 while the event is occurring in Los Angeles.”
While full details about which games will be featured and which stores will participate have yet to be revealed, we do know that Nintendo will be showing off a new Mario, a new Mario Kart and a new Smash Bros. at the show.
Nintendo confirmed last month that it will not be holding a traditional E3 press conference this year. It will instead be holding a number of smaller events including a Wii U Software Showcase hosted by COO Reggie Fils-Aime and Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
E3 2013 will take place from June 11th through 13th in Los Angeles. For more on Nintendo, read our round-up of all of this morning’s news.
This will be the closest you get to E3 for some but I think this is a perfect strategy for advertising purposes. The demos will be displayed and will reach to those who are not wanting to read about it on the internet aka E3. I just hope they let u play all the game demos.
