Nintendo of America Confirms 23 Locations for its Holiday Mall Experience

Portland, Orlando and plenty more besides

The Holiday shopping season is nearly here — perhaps it's already started for some — and Nintendo of America is preparing to take the Wii U, 3DS and its biggest games on a tour around various shopping destinations in the US. On the Wii U we'd expect titles such as Super Mario 3D World and Wii Party U to feature prominently, while The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds should be a major attraction on 3DS / 2DS.

Nintendo of America's official Holiday Mall Experience website has listed 23 locations where the Nintendo systems will be playable between 25th November and 22nd December; the details, along with special visits in some locations, are below.
