    Good move, very good move. Nintendo needs to show people what the Wii U is and what it can do, and that it is not the same as the Wii. aswell as showing of all the great games. If they do this the Wii U will dominate the holiday sales!

    • ThisGuy18

      Yup! That’d be cool if they got some demos in there to showcase like mario kart 8 and smash bros 4

      • jjbredesen

        Yeah it would be , but they are only showing the games on the list in the article. It would be really smart to show MK8, but i dont think that they want to show a game that is not done. And smash bros is just simply not ready for a demo.

        • ThisGuy18

          Yeah that def. makes sense guys. But apart from the demos I’m just glad they’re finally doing this mass awareness deal with the holidays coming up. Everybody will be in the malls around that time. Smart move by Nintendo

          • jjbredesen

            Yup very good, all we need now i a awesome TV ad to promote this.

          • ThisGuy18

            Yeah definitely. Cuz I’ve already noticed a lot of wiiu ads on Nickelodeon (yeah I’m 18 and love spongebob lol xD) and some other networks now that i think about it, which is a nice start

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah i have noticed that to lol I am 14 and love spongebob to :P, but the Wii u ads in scandinavia wich is where i live are all crap…

          • ThisGuy18

            Oh man really? XD well a crappy ad is better than none i guess

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah true, but not when it is so crappy that it makes you not want to buy the system… lol

          • ThisGuy18

            Lol! Damn that bad huh? XD if they worked on their advertising department alone, that would definitely help sales. I mean half of whatever you’re selling is all in how you present it. I wish they’d try to understand this lol i mean would you eat a cake that’s presented well? Or one that’s already been chewed up? XD it’s the same thing but one def. looks better than the other

          • jjbredesen

            lol so true

          • ThisGuy18

            An ad for their mall ventures would definitely help sales skyrocket IMO

      • LevenThumps

        I would like a Mario Kart 8 demo as well, but Nintendo probably wants to showcase games that people can already buy to help the holiday season sales.

      The link is included in the article.

      • lozman1122

        I know, but sadly I know there are some who don’t read the articles and jump straight to the comments. Thought I’d help those poor souls out:)

        • Ducked

          Link, you just posted a “link”.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

          • Ducked

            Really?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Really what?

          • Ducked

            That sarcasm to my dry post

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Was done in humor.

          • Ducked

            True, sarcastic humor.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Was born with it. :(

    • lozman1122

      Hope this helps out! I personally think this is a great idea to bring back, but I’d like there to be more locations. As for me, I live in Indiana, so Indianapolis here I come!:)

      • Mario

        Or Montreal. Come on! People on Canada would like this too!

  • Adrian

    My friend is working for Nintendo promoting the Wii U for this event. Hah.

    • jjbredesen

      um good for you.

      • BIG Franky

        yeah… who cares? LOL…

        • jjbredesen

          My friend owns a cow that knows a grasshopper. that is promoting a new diaper brand. Hah

          • victor

            That is actually amazing

      • Adrian

        Thanks! Oh, was that sarcasm? Your attempt to show how to be an ass or have no concept of courtesy or social conduct? Good job? I guess.

        I suppose conversations are like this when you are around.
        A: “Did you know there is a hospital opening up near here?”
        B: “Oh, yeah! My friend is actually going to be working there!”
        You: “GOOD FOR YOU B, NOBODY CARES.”

        I hope you have friends.

  • LevenThumps

    This is very good for Nintendo, and this is a great lineup of games for both systems. I hope one of these locations is near me.

  • Googs

    It’s about god damn time…

  • Mitchell

    that is a very good line up to show what the wii u is capable of.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Good thing that they left out the Wii Mini from that picture atleast. :)

      • Mitchell

        Yes I agree with you on that

  • Nintendoplaystation

    Nice move, shame it’s not here in the uk. That said I got my on wii u to play. I gotta wait till Christmas to play zelda though.

  • Mario

    Here! Take my gift!

    • jjbredesen

      Can’t wait to meet you there :P

      • Mario

        Okay! See you soon!

        • Ducked

          It’s a….it’s a…. Gameboy Color??!?!?!

          • jjbredesen

            huh? sorry for being stupid, but i did not get that. lol

          • Ducked

            I guess you got a different package, a GameCube?

          • jjbredesen

            ? i own a Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance (SP and Micro) DS, DS L, DSI and 3DS.

            A N64, Gamecube, Wii and Wii U but still dont get the joke lol

          • jjbredesen

            Oh my bad lol now i get it :P lol no i got a dreamcast :P

          • Ducked

            I just said it randomly, and then said GameCube because of your pic.

            As for me, I own a Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance (SP), PSP, and 3DS.

            Then a Sega Genesis, PS2, GameCube, Wii, PS3, and Wii U.

          • jjbredesen

            Ah lol ok fuck i feel stupid. Yeah i also own a PS1 (original), PS2 and i owned a 360, but i got the RROD

          • Ducked

            I owned a 360 too, but I sold it last year. (got bored of it) lol

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, i only got to have it for 2 year before it died so never got to try HALO 4 :( but i was getting bored to. Play most multiplats on my PC though

          • Mario

            No. It’s a Gameboy Advance EXTREME!!!!!

          • Ducked

            Okay, okay..

        • jjbredesen

          Yeah see you soon, i will bring a lot of mushrooms so we can get high :P

          • NkoSekirei

            better be careful or mario might give u a poison mushroom

    • Dodge Pribyl

      I’ll see you in portland, you sexy beast.

  • gtosheex

    This is a great idea. Especially if they are there for black friday on midnight!

  • Ducked

    “Holiday sales”

    Don’t want to offend Jewish people :p

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I’m very offended.

      • Ducked

        Dan, you’re Jewish?

  • Mitchell

    Here in my country (Panama City, Panama) we had this weekend a game convention, and I have to say that Nintendo had a booth showing the Wii U and the 3Ds. With a lot of games to try, unfortunately there was no AC4, Splinter C or even Pikmin. However it was great because they had a lot of people trying out the devices at all times. Way to go Nintendo, that’s the attitude.
    There was also Sony and it´s Ps3, Vita and offcourse the Ps4 but no Microsoft (xbox)

    • erich80

      Sweet. Which games were available to be played?

      • Guest

        NSMBU, WII PARTY U, LUIGI U, JUST DANCE, NINTENDOLAND, and for the 3Ds, LUIGI MANSION, and some others I don’t remember. but it was great, I´m so pleased that N. did this over here, it was unexpected

        • erich80

          Thanks for your reply!

          Nice picture! :) I love DK and can’t wait to put my hands on Tropical Freeze!

          Hope you guys enjoyed the experience!

          • Mitchell

            You´re welcome It was amazing

  • Ducked

    Two of them are in Virginia! YES! I mean, uhhh….near Disney Castle!

    • DarkLegacy

      Disney Castle? Are you serious? I never even knew. does King Mickey know about this?

      • Ducked

        Yes he did, I’m his royal magician. Although I’m spending most of my time at the “Mysterious Tower”. Where did you go? We haven’t seen you in months! Kairi is trying to become a keyblade master like Riku!

        • DarkLegacy

          I went to Traverse Town, then to Destiny Islands when I stopped and saw a Keyblade there. Seems like it was a master Keyblade. And are you sure that Kairi is ready to become a master? She’ll need to do some warm ups if she wants to become one

          • Ducked

            I’m thinking Sora will go off to the realm of darkness as soon as he finds Master Eraqus keyblade to go search for Aqua.

          • DarkLegacy

            But I went Twilight Town first, but these Heartless were shaped like a tidal wave. I wonder what Malificent has up her sleeves now

          • Ducked

            She probably has Sephiroth up her sleeves lol

          • DarkLegacy

            I wonder if she has Julius up her sleeves too

          • Ducked

            I hope not!

          • DarkLegacy

            Oh for crying out loud! You’re the duck with the staff. Perhaps you should try shrinking them tiny and squash them like bugs

          • Ducked

            But Thunder, Fire, and Blizzard are my main trends ;)

          • DarkLegacy

            I know that you should have some new spells :3

        • NkoSekirei

          and truthteller is king mickeys royal fool

          • Ducked

            He’s a royal type of foolish alright

  • Yousif Alromaithi

    Man I love wonderful 101. I am playing it now because I never finished and really feel bad it did not sell well now if only sequel would be but seems unlikely.

    • erich80

      W101 is really amazing. It is such a pity it has sold so little.

      • Yousif Alromaithi

        One of the best fighting boss this year. Really awesome.

        • erich80

          Unfortunately – or fortunately, in reality – I have a backlog of games to play, and I could not beat W101 yet – I played it only for 3-4 hours or so. But it is so unique and addictive that I’m planning to go over it ASAP – currently I’m trying to finish all FE: Awakening side quests on the 3DS.

          • Yousif Alromaithi

            Man Fire Emblem is hard. Very long to finish all the side quests. Getting everything in Fire Emblem could take over hundred hours. I played it twice. I just recently finished Wind Waker but I am planing on finishing YS PS Vita just when my copy comes in. I mean as soon as possible if I have time for it because they are many games I did not finish and plan to like Assassin Creed 4.

  • LevenThumps

    What is your definition of old? Super Mario 3D World isn’t even out yet, Wind Waker came out October 4 in the packaged version, Mario and Sonic isn’t out in North America yet, Pikmin 3 came out in July, which isn’t that long ago. The majority of these games are relatively new to the system and they look amazing.

    • jjbredesen

      This guy is a troll just ignore him trolls dont have facts, just look at his name. Good to see that there are people that can come with some good arguments, but you are feeding him.

      • ScrewAttack

        Just report every post and move on. Guttersnipes like this shouldn’t even be acknowledged.

      • Magnus Eriksson

        He probably is a troll. But its true that most on that list is either old or not so good.

        Super Mario 3D World (new)

        Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD (old restauration)

        Pikmin 3 (old news)

        Mario & Sonic at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games (new)

        The Wonderful 101 (old news)

        Wii Fit U (new, but got bad reviews)

        Just Dance 2014 (yawn)

        Wii Party U (new, but got bad rewievs)

        Wii Sports Club (restauration of an old Wii title)

        Batman: Arkham Origins (new, better on other plats)

        Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag (new, better on other plats)

        Rayman Legends (old news)

        Splinter Cell: Blacklist (old news, better on other plats)

        Disney Infinity (old)

        Most of the titles are quite uninteresting besides the two new Mario games. Its quite a disappointing lineup after one year on the market. There is not one single title that shows that Nintendo is ready for the battle against its competitors. No NEW Zelda, no Metroid, no F-Zero, no nothing. I think this lineup proves that Nintendo have capitulated long time ago.

        edit: Thought I saw Mario Kart 8 on that list, but I was wrong. Only one Mario game then. It doesnt look good at all.

        • Justagamer

          maybe so but their are those this christmas that will deside what console to get and alot of people have not even played those games so they are new to them

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah, thats actually very true. But is it still a smash list? I know Nintendo can do way better than this. Dont you?

          • jjbredesen

            They can, but every company in the world and every person in the world can always do better :P

          • Magnus Eriksson

            But Nintendo is the greatest producers of games. But they have not proven it this generation. They are out of touch.

          • jjbredesen

            Well yes and no. They have a great 1st and 2nd party line up, but it’s the 3rd party stuff that is the problem. I think the problem will get better when the Wii U sales start to go up, when MK8 and smash bros hit. They have got a lot higher, and although sites like IGN dont mention it, the Wii U is selling like crazy now!

            Just check some of my comments on the Wii U sales rise with 1500% article.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah… about that. Have you tried to count that into real numbers? Nintendo is still doing bad, just not as bad as before…

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah i know, but it is better. And sales are only getting higher, not lower, so if you look at what games are cooming and the fact that the killer apps have not yet hit+ the wii U has not had any god ads yet. I think Wii U sales are looking very postive. (not fanastic, but they are good.)

            And by postive i mean greater then 0 :P just kidding.

          • Justagamer

            I agree But except EA they will never get better

          • jjbredesen

            LOL! They are well,…. they are EA, can’t say anything else.

          • Justagamer

            I can agree with you I do wish for more games but like the 3ds i will make a turn around.So many people calling for nintendo to die is so sad and im going to wait till after christmas to make any judgments

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I was a bit to categorical. I think Nintendo have done a great thing with 3DS. But that doesnt help that they have dropped the ball on WiiU IMO.

        • jjbredesen

          Some of what you say is true, but you say that the 3rd parties are better on other plats? The Wii U version of 3rd parties are better then the versions on 360 and PS3. Thats a fact. And then Ubisoft says that Wii U games are sowhere between Now and current gen. So that means that 3rd parties are not better on all other plats-

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I was thinking about the online support, not the quality of the game. Should maybe have made that clearer. I know that COD is a much better game on Nintendo with its Motion Controls for example.

            edit: btw, I have never labeled Wii U as nothing else than current gen. It clearly is current gen. While Wii is last gen (soon together with PS3 and XB360). It belongs to the same generation as PS4 and XBOne. Generation has nothing to do with power, its about when its released.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, well i sort of agree with you the online on Nintendo systems have always been crappy, but it has gotten a lot better.

            But i must say.. Cod is not better on the Wii. It is better on the wii u, but you dont use motion controls on the wii u for cod.

          • Gregg

            Agreed. GAMEPAD or PRO, on WiiU.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Should have specified Wii U there, I see that now.

        • Gregg

          Just Dance: YAWN?! Clearly you are out of touch with the success this franchise has had with it’s target audience. It’s a quality product, and a fun one, especially for those into this kind of game. Also, bazillions of people wait till XMAS to buy games for their kids/partners. So, anything of quality, released in recent months, is fair game for XMAS targeting.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Sorry man. Thats a subjective opinion, like everything else. Maybe its the smash title that will move everything around. Im not a God that knows the future. I base my opinions on rewievs, hands on experiences and things like that. I can of course be mistaken and wrong. Ok?

          • Gregg

            Could be the inability for the Undead to Dance?

            -G

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Could very well be. This rotten corpse of Mario is stiff and not a strong dacer. But he do the robot dance good, or sort of good anyways.

          • Gregg

            lmao. WiiU looks strong this fall. Sales are already way up. Let’s hope this lures more developers in…

          • Magnus Eriksson

            I have to agree. It looks better for Nintendo now than just three weeks ago. I hope it will keep up and grow. Also its wrong of me to compare WiiU with the best possible lineup of PS4. Im sure it will have its problems too.

          • Gregg

            They all will. PS3 was a disaster at Launch. Growing pains all around

            -G

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Still it looks like Sony have learnt from previous mistakes. PS4 is not near as expensive as PS3 was. Its actually quite cheap by comparisons with earlier consoles.

          • Simon Stevens

            It was a CHEAP blu ray player for it’s time, still a bargain

        • Y u no die =X

          I saw something cool on Walmart
          it said Zelda 2 (RPG) (Wii U) but i said its not the nes one and its $99.96 so i think Nintendo is going to make a new zelda based off of another zelda game in the series or adventure of link which would suck.

          • jjbredesen

            Hmm do you have a picture if you have, plz send it to me asap!

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Dont think thats a fact. Lol

          • jjbredesen

            Tell that to walmart this is what they have to say:

            The Legend of Zelda Wii U (Working Title), a Nintendo console exclusive, is a highly anticipated pre-release general action game to be released in Q4 of 2013.
            More information is on the way! Check back soon!

            Hmm… could this mean the Zelda U actually could be ready for a christmas launch?? I dont think so, but that is very wierd

          • Magnus Eriksson

            If it was. Then Nintendo is genious. But I doubt it.

          • jjbredesen

            Yeah, but nintendo would have shown the game if it was to release so soon.

          • Simon Stevens

            I dunno, sometimes Nintendo are backwards like that, release a big game like it’s nothing then act like there’s a bullet bill apocalypse for games like busty barbie babe u

        • Nintedward

          Super Mario 3d world (better than anything on Xbox one and PS4 for a long time)

          There, I fixed it for you.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Why are you responding to my comments when you doesnt tackle my responds to you? Its not that I care, Im just curious here. Last comment from you was something like “I hate you! You fuckin idiot! Dont ever talk to me again”. And liking other peoples comments to me like “I hope you die” and the like. Its ok for me that you communicate with me, but then you have to tackle responses and comments from me.

          • Nintedward

            Awwwww my little Magny wagny ^_^! Your sensitive side is showng :)
            I was merely correcting the bullshit that you typed. No hard feelings… I’m sure your a nice guy, but you do type some serious bullshit sometimes….

            Hehe, was not my sensible part. I could just not compute, thats all. You know that Im driven by pure logic and precise mathematics, not feelings ;)

        • Derk

          Don’t forget all of the excellent titles on VC.

          My favorites are the 40yr old Tennis and Golf games that cost $5 each and are by no means generic.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Those are great. And Urban Champion is a state of the art fighting game too. Hope we will see some Atari 2600 classics soon. E.T will elevate the WiiU to a unprecedented level.

          • Derk

            Don’t get ahead of yourself Magnus.

            With all of the splendor that Nintendo has been hitting us with, week after week? I fear that E.T might be asking too much of them …

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Sorry, but a girl can dream cant she?

          • Simon Stevens

            I found my copy of E.T :) I was just building a sand castle in the desert minding my own business and there it was, crazy

        • Simon Stevens

          Old but gold

      • Justagamer

        He is just a waste of space

      • Derk

        Dont ignore your problems. If you want to deal with a black sheep, then you need to stop segregating them and try to understand them as a person like you. Would a troll continue to troll if they had people reaching out to them? Would a troll be a troll if he felt that sense of belonging in the crowd he were trolling?

        Just throwing you guys a mental curveball… Just as opinions are subjective, so are problems and poor behaviors. My theory is that trolls are just searching for an empty seat at your table.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          True, but trolls are often created by labelling them trolls. Its a classical divide into us and them. Wise words there Derk.

        • jjbredesen

          I agree, with you, but when you post stupid comments, then you will get a negative respone, as magnus said wise words.

    • Gregg

      He is a sad little troll. Don’t feed him. Let him starve to death, till his Mommy finds him, in her spare bedroom.

  • Mitchell

    but it is still good

    • Gameonfool

      “But it is still good”, well I can’t argue with you there. But Nintendo need to do more

      • Mitchell

        Yes, and I´m positive they will, they must because the Wii U is not alone anymore, there´s the Ps4 and Xone just behind the corner

        • Gameonfool

          Nintendo need to make a massive massive zelda game with an amazing world to explore, Nintendo also need star fox, metroid, f zero and maybe something like an eternal darkness game all this generation for wii u to compliment all the games already known about. But I just don’t know if they have it in them anymore

          • jjbredesen

            Agreed, ok so your not a troll sry for stamping you as that.

            But i do think they have it in them.

          • Gameonfool

            To be honest I have been a troll over past articles but after spending the day at my sisters and playing wii u with my niece all day ( pikmin 3, Nsmbu andNintendo land ) I can see Nintendo may just have that little sprinkle of magic left and their games are harder Than they look that said good luck to them they have a lot of hard work in front of them

            Formally known as goodbyenintendo

          • jjbredesen

            I respect you for that comment. and yes they have a lot of hard work in front of them.

          • LevenThumps

            Even if you didn’t like the WiiU after that comment, I would’ve appreciated you more since you have actually tried the WiiU; most trolls haven’t even tried a system they hate on. I agree that Nintendo has a lot of hard work ahead of them, but I think they can do it.

          • Keyser

            That’s nice to hear. I don’t know what you think of Nintendo fans, but most of us welcome constructive criticism and discussion. They clearly have their work cut out for them, but if they do what they did for the 3DS, I think the Wii U will be fine. Feel free to join if you like (though I’d recommend a name change :) )

          • Shota

            now that’s the spirit pal!

      • jjbredesen

        Yes i agree, i dont get why you have got so many down votes for that post? Nintendo is doing great, but they do need to do more in the advertisment area. This is a good start, but not enough, to make the Wii U sell like the PS2. It will do great, but we need more ads!

        • Gameonfool

          They need to advertise it as a different console to wii, I do believe thy need to pump out more games too

          • Mitchell

            Also not only show their own games running on the console, splinter cell and assassin creed looks much
            better in Wii U than on ps3

          • Justagamer

            That’s the truth but there will always be a few bad eggs on websites like this

          • D.M.T

            Ok so you´re not a troll anymore, that´s great but your name still screams troll. You can´t call yourself goodbyenintendo when Nintendo hasn´t left and won´t leave no matter how much shit people talk about them

          • jjbredesen

            True Nintendo could survive a whole generation with little to no sales and still survive! With a cash reserve of about 8 billion dollars that should not be a problem-

          • Gameonfool

            Yep, I was furious to why people brought an underpowered kid box and i was trying to agitate them. I use my account on wii u daily as well as the ps4 and Xbox one sites. I have been a bit silly really. I would like to apologise. I been playing wii u at my nieces and its not bad. I may change this name soon.

            Formally known as goodbyenintendo

          • Justagamer

            Yeah right! Now if Wii U is such a kid box why does it have games like Zombi U mass effect 3 ..The soon to be watch dogs and splinter cell and much more Yeah it has alot kid friendly games but so does Sony and microsoft So i quess they are kid consoles too..Just saying and think before you comment again kid

          • jjbredesen

            He said that was his impression before he tried the Wii U, dam he is trying to say something postive, lets not downvote him for that aswell jesus!

          • Justagamer

            I could care less the guy bashes me and others for liking Wii U for so long so forget that man..Each to their own i quess but i don’t believe you can change that fast from what you like..But we will see

          • jjbredesen

            Of course i love the Wii U i have never said that i dont. I am just saying that he had not tried the Wii U and now that he has he likes it, so what he said in the past is irrelevent. Yes he was a troll, but no longer. My fav console is the Wii U and i have not changed sides. I am a universal gamer, but i am a huge Nintendo fan, and grew up with the N64/Gamecube. I am not taking sides on this matter i am on my own side and will say what i feel id right. Yes he has said a lot of shit, but if he want to change we should let him and not bash him for that aswell.

          • Justagamer

            I will take that in consideration now you i have no problem with you and have respect man just some people i don’t trust but people can change so all i can say is we will see and that is all i can say for the moment

          • jjbredesen

            I agree.

          • jjbredesen

            Ah when you said people cant change that fast i thought you where talking about me going from calling him a troll to “trusting” him. So i guess we can forget my self defense rampage comment… haha

          • Justagamer

            Sounds cool

          • Simon Stevens

            Since the beginning I’ve always had Nintendo and Playstation consoles to compliment eachother, that and rollercoster tycoon on pc and I was set for life, still building parks on rct3 now ^^ with my trusty wii u and ps3 (ps4 next year) by my side

          • jjbredesen

            I am the same, but i didnt buy the PS3, i whent xbox because of the price when PS3 launched. Sadly my xbox dies so i am waiting to buy a ps4 now.

          • Simon Stevens

            Xbox wasn’t a bad console but the first party games got pretty lazy to the point of non existence, Playstation try a whole bunch of different stuff all the time, the choice can be no other, be a ps4 lover

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You don’t help by bashing his comments each and every time. Try to reserve judgment for a change.

          • Justagamer

            I do when i chose too Now man i respect you and what you think but he bashed me and started that and for that no respect will be given to that guy..Atleast not right now..Sorry but the guy can’t just come and call people names and think things will be all dandy so heck no Not till the poser proves it..

          • D.M.T

            Of course it´s not bad and its not underpowered either, just less powerful than the other two. Oh and it´s not a kid box either, most kids play COD on other consoles. Nintendo is family friendly, remember that.

          • jjbredesen

            Yes!, they must advertise and get more 3rd party titles.

  • Simon Stevens

    Any idea if Nintendo have similar plans for the UK?

    • erich80

      Nintendo really needs to better advertise Wii U in the UK. But I have the impression that you guys have a strong predilection for Sony and Microsoft… I don’t know if Nintendo can turn the tables over there…

      • Simon Stevens

        They really do, there’s literally no advertisement in the UK, unfortunately there’s a lot of truth to what you said, it’s been that way for as long as I can remember, in school, me and probably 5 or 6 people I knew had a n64 and gamecube, 6 people out of over a thousand is pretty sad

        • erich80

          Frankly, in NA, lots of people (some gamers included) still don’t know that the Wii U is not a controller for the Wii. Taking into account that Nintendo advertises the console a little bit better here, I can only imagine how difficult is to clarify for the UK average consumer that Nintendo has been offering a new home console for one year…

          • Simon Stevens

            My friends at work haven’t got a clue that the wii u is even a new console, I mentioned mario 3d world, one guy said it all “I haven’t touched my wii for years” lol even when I explained what the console is and does, he wasn’t interested in it, they’ve got there work cut out for them in the UK

  • Zuxs13

    Well hopefully this will help them over come the bad press from crap like CNET,

    http://cnettv.cnet.com/worst-holiday-tech-gifts/9742-1_53-50158783.html

    Of course they give no reason but they say its a disaster.

    • jjbredesen

      How dare he say something like that? no wonder they have no comment section :P I feel like sending this guy a long mail, but he proberly aint worth it.

      • Zuxs13

        He is just trying to be controversial. He has no tech knowledge what so ever or business education.

        • TheAquacharger

          His reason for not getting a Black berry is weird. If we went by that logic then there’d be a lot of things we wouldn’t buy. Like say Motoralla phones as they were being sold and then Google bought them.

        • jjbredesen

          Yeah that is proberly true. His logic makes no sense.

  • erich80

    Why Bayonetta 2 is not figuring on the list? :o

    • erich80

      Sorry, my bad. They are going to showcase games that are already released – or about to be. I take that back.

  • The Clockwork Being

    I know the hype for the game is already high but I don`t think that some fans fan realize that the Comet Observatory is in Mario 3D World. HYPE UNLEASHED!! It might play a cool role in the game.

        I just went on a huge celebration after seeing. I searched the original poster to make sure it wasn’t some clever Photoshop but no it really was there. This has hyped me up even more then before.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    Good to see that games like Assassins Creed and Batman are playable. That should help a bit

    • Nintedward

      Speaking of Batman, I got the Wiiu version and its pretty good! It lacks the perfection of the Rocksteady games but it’s worth buying and fun ;)

      • Justagamer

        I thought about getting it..Is it have the same open world feel

      • NkoSekirei

        the story was awsome especially the boss fights

        • Nintedward

          Yep, it’s more of an 8.0/10 as opposed to a 9.5/10…. That’s how I feel about it compared to City and Asylum.
          What can I say, Rocksteady did us brits proud ;) but Origins is a good effort by WB.

          @Ganon, yeah it’s still openworld, it’s bigger than City also! It’s a very good game, just the polish and special ingredients of Rocksteady’s games seem to be missing.

          • Justagamer

            Im thinking of getting it

          • Rinslowe

            True. I also felt the same… Playing on PC though.

            Playing through Deus Ex HR on Wii U right now. And it is pretty darn good. Gamepad integration is spot on (and by spot on, I really mean game changing), plus the visuals; second to the original PC version IMO.

      • Gabe Hoffman

        Its also cool that they are still demoing W101

  • tlopuse

    Where is Bayonetta 2 n Mario Kart, those one are the game they need to show up to see how fun is the wii u

    • jjbredesen

      Yeah, but they are showing the games that people can buy for Christmas, not what they will be able to buy next year. I would love to have a MK8 demo there, but the game is not ready.

      • GermGerm

        Wasn’t Mario Kart 8 playable at the summer event similar to this one?

        • jjbredesen

          Nah only playable at E3.

    • ItzameyaToad

      Those aren’t planned to release until spring of next year. Im sure Nintendo isn’t far enough alot on those games or they want to focus peoples attention on to new games coming this holiday season. Though perhaps having trailers for the games running at each booth could help keep people aware of games coming in the future.

  • Geoff Hammer

    Only about a year late, but better late than never.

  • Justagamer

    Nah U mad bro? You will never understand..You are weak and to proud to just game and if you hate nintendo that is fine but don’t come here spewing your hate here because no one gives a damn and the thumbs down prove it

  • Gregg

    That is one hell of a lineup.

  • bizzy gie

    Super Mario 3D World!

  • CEObrainz

    The 3DS seems to be showing off a better line of titles in my opinion, however promoting Wii Sports Club could really help gain a small percentage of those people who bought the Wii for Wii Sports.

  • bizzy gie

    Lawrenceville, GA is super close! Discover Mills is noe Sugarloaf Mills.

  • Nintendoro

    Good. That should send a message. I still believe Nintendo so far is pretty much poorly advertising Wii U. Bad marketing means poor sales. Hope, it’ll change

  • http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ Eiji Aonuma

    I hope everyone that plays the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds enjoys their experience.

  • Justagamer

    This is what is called awesome

  • Dodge Pribyl

    Seems that Nintendo took my tweet about no events in Oregon into consideration. Yay!

  • starwars360

    Cannot wait for Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros., Bayonetta 2, X, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Yarn Yoshi, Skylanders 4 and load more on Wii U!!!! :)

  • starwars360

    Hey Nintendo, 4 missing games that should joins with other games that mention in list. It is Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Skylanders: Swap Force and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes!!! They all Wii U titles and should include. :)

  • only god can judge me

    In love with my wii u skin

  • sup3rnoah

    no mario kart or smash bros? meh, i don’t really care then.

    • Justagamer

      have to wait till next year

    congrats nintendo you finally started giving some effort into your marketing… wait its only 23 locations? *sighs* well heres to another half assed attempt. i really wish nintendo would do things more seriously, its a good system.

  • Gameonfool

    Can just ask, have you played on a wii u yet

  • Magnus Eriksson

    You actually got some support for this claim. There are some analysts who states the same thing.

  • Nintendoro

    You probably don’t know that Nintendo are bringing their best games as of December: Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong TF, SMSBB, Bayonetta 2,.. Those games will be Nintendo’s best selling titles of 2014. It’s too early to say Wii U isn’t going to sell

  • Jon

    The irony of this statement….. you said this the last time they went to do a promotional event. So does that mean you consider every promotion or event Nintendo does is a desperate cry?

    here is the typical you:

    *Nintendo doesn’t advertise well*
    “man, Nintendo is so done, they need to advertise, but its too late”
    *Nintendo Advertises*
    “Oh man, they are so desperate, this is such a desperate move by Nintendo! I”m a troll derpy derp derp”

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Donkey Kong TF was pushed back to February. Your post needs a little editing since you mixed some holiday games with next year.
