Nintendo is keeping the idea that gamers will be able to get what Wii U is once they’ve tried it. Thus, the company will be giving players the opportunity to try and learn their upcoming game console.
Be Interactive with Wii U Kiosks
It was reported that Nintendo will be rolling our interactive Wii U kiosks to over 5,000 retailers across the US. A demo station will be available to game stores like Target, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, and Toys “R” Us.
As for the console’s content, it will vary depending on the location. Some kiosks will enable gamers to pick up the Wii U and play games, while others will only feature video content.
Those who want to try the Wii U, they can find the kiosk nearest to them by entering their zip code at Nintendo’s special events website.

Nintendo will release the Wii U to North America on November 18. It will come in 8 GB or 32 GB capacities, which will be priced at $300 and $350 respectively. Moreover, the 32 GB model will include a copy of Nintendo Land.
This news was confirmed during a media event in New York City last September. The basic 8 GB model will feature the Wii U GamePad, AC adapter, HDMI cable, and sensor bar. On the other hand, the deluxe 32 GB will have everything from the basic unit, as well as additional memory storage, consol cradle, and GamePad strands.
It was also reported that the company’s first high-definition system will become available with 23 titles. This includes New Super Mario Bros. U, Bayonetta 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Assassin’s Creed III. Meanwhile, the Lego City Undercover will be a “launch window” title, and those who will pre-order the game will have an exclusive minifigure.
With regards to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg shows a live demo of the game on the Nintendo system during the media event. He also confirmed that it will run at 60 frames per seconds, just as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions do. Also coming to the console are Skylanders Giants, 007 Legends, Transformers Prime: The Game and Wipeout 3.
Moreover, the Nintendo Wii U will roll out to Europe and Australia on November 30 with the pricing to be decided by the retailers from the region. It will also be available in Japan on December 8.
