Here's the list of Nintendo's E3 demo Best Buy locations photo
Here's the list of Nintendo's E3 demo Best Buy locations
by Dale North

[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.

It appears as if Nintendo will be "bringing E3 to the public" in the words of Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. Nintendo will be bringing playable builds of their newly announced Wii U games to select Best Buy l...

Kingdom Hearts 3D is only $10 at Best Buy today

I don't know what it is about Square Enix games, but they always feel like they cost too damn much. This is especially true of the handheld titles -- I refused to pick up Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy for $39.99, waiting instead...

Lost Planet 3's many retail specific pre-order 'bonuses'

Oh goodie! Another barrage of retail specific pre-order bonus fluff such as weapons, items, and characters that won't really alter your experience were you to just skip out on pre-purchasing the game. Lost Planet 3 is the la...

Various retailers list Watch Dogs for Wii U

The Wii U is in a pretty sad state when no one can guarantee current third-party games for the platform. What will become of Nintendo's fun box when "truly next-gen" titles -- Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, for instance -- star making...

$160 3DS XL at Best Buy from December 9-15

That $200 3DS XL bundle currently making the rounds about town? Eh. 'Tis not so great. You are limited to the blue model, and the bundled copy of Mario Kart 7 is digital only. At the very least, you can score a cool $20 gift ...

$200 3DS XL bundle snuck into stores under our noses

There wasn't much fanfare when it was discovered that a new $199.99 3DS XL bundle featuring a pre-loaded copy of Mario Kart 7 was coming. There was even less fanfare when the damn thing ninja-ed onto store shelves yesterday. ...

$99.99 Wii Mini revealed  photo
$99.99 Wii Mini revealed
by Jim Sterling

Nintendo has officially revealed the Wii Mini, slated for Canadian release on December 7 and retailing for $99.99. According to the platform holder, the small-size Wii will be exclusive to our neighbors in the north for the duration of the holiday period. 

The Mini features a top-loading disc tray and looks like a Duplo brick with its flat look and red/black color scheme. As well as cutting down on size, the Mini has an important feature snipped -- online connectivity. It also won't be compatible with GameCube games -- but "most" peripherals will be supported ... so that's something. Maybe. 

Nintendo currently has nothing to say on a worldwide release, so if you're desperate for an offline Wii that isn't backwards-compatible, you best be in Canada!
