Nintendo have teamed up with retail giant Best Buy to bring their playable 2013 E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) demos to 110 participating Best Buy locations across North America; 89 in the United States and 21 in Canada. Typically, exclusive E3 demos are only enjoyed by the video game industry media who happen to attend the each year's E3 event.

According to a previous Press Release, Nintendo plans on showing off their new Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart, and 3D Super Mario titles title for Wii U. Best Buy have announced that the exclusive games will be playable from 4-8PM local time on Wednesday, June 12, and 1-5PM local time on Saturday, June 15.

I love how you listed all of them. That is great. My local one is Whitehall, PA so that means that I will be there on Wednesday and Saturday! Go Nintendo!
This is a pretty amazing marketing idea for Best Buy.  It's an easy way to increase the sales while gaining some gamer cred.
aw.. I would love to also try some of those demo's.. But don't expect this to happen in Europe..
(The following line should be read with a high degree of sarcasm.) Wow, they went out of their way to hit some of the "big" cities in California!
What? No North Dakota??

Of course not, we're just small town, forgettable farmers, ranchers, and roughnecks up here.
Closest one to me is 45 min away.. Definately making the trip!!!
The locations for Canada have been added!
I might be able to head into Cambridge or out to Worcester, sure! I usually avoid things like this because: lines, people, and parking. But! I'd love to see the new Mario Kart console game live and in person.

And if they're letting us actually play these games, wow!

And there's a chance of scoring some Luigi loot too! (What's Luigi loot, but I'm excited anyway?!)
