Go play the Wii U now at select retailers

Nintendo has informed us that at least 5,000 Wii U kiosks are now available across the United States. You'll find these demo stations at participating retailers, which includes Target, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, and Toys R' Us.

The game selection varies depending on the kiosk, and you'll be able to find Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros. U, SiNG PARTY, ZombiU, and Rayman Legends (!). Of course, you should call first so that you don't just show up empty-handed.

I actually saw this pop up at my local GameStop over the weekend, which is my second time testing out the Wii U. Personally, based on what I've played so far (all of the above games and more) I'm much more excited for this console than the Wii. The GamePad tech is really, really fun, and if Nintendo follows suit with the strides they've made on the 3DS eShop, it'll make for one awesome little fun box.

You can find a list of locations here.

Space Beast Terror Fright is Johannes "johno" Norneby's interpretation of the sci-fi first-person shooter: take the artful tension-building and high-octane muzzle flash from James Cameron's Aliens, add in the corridor c...more

Nintendo Download: 3D After Burner II

On the Wii U, we have Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight on the Virtual Console. Nintendo calls this an "NES classic," but I beg to differ. Also on the Wii U eShop, there's Electroic Super Joy: Groove City, Family Tennis SP...more
