Nintendo Announce Wii U UK Showcase Tour


Starting at Eurogamer on 27th September, the Wii U showcase tour will be giving many of us the chance to go hands on with the Wii U for the first time before it’s release on 30th November. The tour will be visiting shopping centres, game expos and events all over the country.

“The tour is the perfect place to get hands-on with some of the pre-release Wii U titles and experience first-hand how the new Wii U GamePad controller with 6.2-inch touch screen affects both single and multiplayer games. Visitors will get a real feel for what the Wii U has to offer this Christmas with world famous Nintendo franchises like Mario and brand new Wii U exclusives including Nintendo Land and Ubisoft’s ZombiU available to trial.”

“As an extra treat, Nintendo favourites Mario and Luigi will be on hand to welcome Nintendo fans on the day, plus there will be a whole host of Wii U challenges to complete and fantastic prizes to be won!  There’ll also be a chance to sample upcoming Nintendo 3DS XL titles before they launch, including the latest Pokémon and Mario adventures.”
