Rumour: Best Buy's Wii U E3 Demo List Revealed
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Dare we say it's slightly disappointing?
We know that through two days, one during E3 and one shortly after, over 100 Best Buy stores throughout North America will host demo units of major upcoming Wii U games, with the goal of giving shoppers the booth experience wherever they are.
It's a solid initiative, and a picture has emerged — via gamingvlog.net — of a promotional poster for the units. It seems authentic in the fact it lists four games — which has been confirmed as the number of demos by Nintendo of America on Twitter — and has the correct dates and details, in this case for the Wheaton store in Maryland; Wii U is also incorrectly spaced, which wouldn't be surprising considering it's such a common mistake.
All of these titles are either dated or expected during Fall, with only The Wind Waker HD being a title that hasn't been seen much or previously available as a playable demo; the absence of games such as the new Super Mario 3D or Mario Kart is perhaps a disappointment, especially as Nintendo's confirmed they'll be playable on the E3 show floor.
But still, Nintendo does like to throw up surprises, and this is only a rumour, so we'll see what the final Best Buy offering is in the coming days. If this is the final picture, will you be heading to your local store to take a look, especially as there's "Luigi loot" on offer?
