Just days after publishing its ever first advert for the highly-anticipated Wii U gaming console, Nintendo is announcing today that it will be rolling out more than 5,000 interactive Wii U kiosks on selected retail stores across the U.S. The Japanese consumer electronics company wants consumers, particularly Holiday shoppers, to get a first-hand look and hands-on on the next-generation gaming console. Among the retailers included are Target, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, and Toys ‘R’ Us.
The company says that visitors, depending on the Wii U sampling station available, will be able to play games such as Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U, SiNG PARTY, and ZombiU and Rayman Legends. The Nintendo Wii U will be making its debut in the U.S. on November 18th. Nintendo still has plenty of time to win the hearts of consumers.
Last month, a Nintendo executive broke the news that the company is expecting a loss on every Wii U console that it would sell. The Wii U Deluxe Set will be available at a suggested retail price of $349.99, while the Wii U Basic Set will be sold at a suggested retail price of $299.99.
