In addition to its various live broadcasts during E3, a while ago Nintendo confirmed that its Nintendo NY store in Rockefeller Plaza would be showing the first day's action on its large screen and giving some attendees time to try out The Legend of Zelda's extended demo.

Though the hands on appointments don't start until 3pm local time on 14th June, those in New York that want one of the 500 appointments (running up to 19th June) will need to queue up this weekend. Time slots will start to be handed out to those that are in line at 9am Eastern on Saturday 11th June; it'll be interested to see whether there's a lot of keen interest around this opportunity to go hands on with the game.

During E3 Nintendo will also be running in-store demonstrations of the Wii U game, so if you don't have an appointment it'll likely still be worth going along if you live locally.

Are any of you planning to get up early on Saturday to queue for an appointment?
