[Update: Canadian locations have been added.]

We recently told you that Nintendo plans to bring select E3 game reveals to Best Buy locations across North America. That's right: you'll be able to check out some of the Wii U games we're seeing at E3 at your local Best Buy. Pretty neat, right?

These games will be open for play from 4-8 p.m. on Wednesday June 12, and from 1-5 p.m. on June 15. 

There's word of something called "Luigi loot" for those that visit. Whatever that is, I want some. 

You'll find the full list of stores below.
