Nintendo may not be holding one of its global press conferences at this year’s E3, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it should be seen as a bad thing, even though its Wii U has yet to sell as well as the company originally hoped it would. Instead, Nintendo will be holding a Wii U Software Showcase for media to attend to try out some of the company’s upcoming titles for both the struggling console. But for the first time ever, Nintendo will also be allowing its fans in the U.S. to get a taste of E3 right in their town as the company announced it has partnered with Best Buy to bring E3 to its fans.
During the week of E3, Nintendo fans can head down to select Best Buy retail stores in order to play select Wii U games in the store. This is the first time a hardware manufacturer and software developer has teamed up with a large retail chain to give players a sneak peek of their E3 lineup outside of the show. At this time, Nintendo did not detail what game titles players can expect to be made available to play at select Best Buys, but we’re sure they’ll deliver that information as we get closer to E3.
