Brighton, UK, 14th September 2012: Eurogamer Expo, the UK's biggest and best gaming festival, is thrilled to announce that the upcoming Wii U game console from Nintendo will be playable at this year's show.
The Wii U console launches this November and is an HD console that offers more choice and variety of gameplay than ever before, with brand new gaming experiences enabled by the innovative Wii U GamePad controller, whether playing alone or together with friends. The Wii U GamePad offers an integrated second screen and can also be used independently of the TV set with certain software.
Attendees at the Eurogamer Expo will be the first in the UK to sample the new Wii U game console ahead of its release on the 30th November.
"We are incredibly excited to be able to showcase Nintendo's ground-breaking new Wii U game console at this year's Eurogamer Expo," said Eurogamer Events Director David Lilley. "This will be the first time gamers get to go hands-on with it in the UK."
The Eurogamer Expo will be returning to London's Earls Court from 27th-30th September 2012 and is expected to welcome over 50,000 gamers.
This year's Eurogamer Expo promises more playable games than ever (including a large number of UK first-plays), our highest-profile developer session schedule, as well as a number of satellite events including the Games Industry Fair.
