Nintendo has repeatedly said that the Wii U has to be experienced first hand to fully understand the concept of the new console. And to make sure as many people as possible get a chance to try out the Wii U before it launches, Nintendo will set up 5,000 Wii U kiosks around North America by November 18, when the console finally hits the store shelves.
The Wii U kiosks have already appeared at retail stores such as Best Buy and Target, and as we get closer to launch, over 5,000 of such stores, including Best Buy, Target, GameStop, and Walmart will offer gamers a chance to try out the new Nintendo console. The Kiosks will carry special game demos to showcase its new features, and playable games include New Super Mario Bros, ZombiU, Nintendo Land, and more.
Nintendo has even set up a special web page that will help gamers find a Wii U kiosk in the US. You can check it out here.
