UK Wii U showcase tour revealed

Nintendo is embarking on a national UK Wii U showcase, kicking off at the end of September.

Mirroring the strategy it used with the 3DS, Nintendo will try and get the hardware in as many people’s hands as possible prior to the console’s UK launch on November 30th.

Nintendo Land and ZombieU will both be playable.

Retailer GAME has also announced that it is the “lead partner” for the Wii U launch in the UK.

“Nintendo has once again shaken up the gaming market with the launch of Wii U, packed with innovative features and some classic games,” GAME’s Anna-Marie Mason stated. “It’s brilliant to see Nintendo catering for diehard fans with the return of Super Mario Bros and Call of Duty as launch titles and we are really delighted to be their lead partner for the UK launch.”
