Wii U and 3DS samping tours kick off next week

Nintendo will be showcasing both Wii U and 3DS around the UK this summer, visiting various festivals and air shows.

The Wii U Den Tour and Nintendo 3DS Festival of Fun will be held simultaneously for the most part, with both sampling events starting at the Sunderland Air Show from Saturday, July 27th to Sunday, July 28th.

Wii U will then visit the Bristol Balloon Fiesta from August 8th to 11th and Clacton Air Show on August 22nd and 23rd.

Meanwhile, 3DS will be shown off at Nottingham Riverside Festival from August 2nd to 4th, Williamson Square from August 22nd to August 25th and Bournemouth Air Festival from August 29th to September 1st.

Both consoles will be available to try during Eastbourne Airborne from August 15th to 18th.

Interestingly, the goal of both tours appears to be highlighting the software currently available for each platform, rather than the upcoming games announced at E3.

Wii U demos will include Nintendo Land, New Super Mario Bros U and LEGO City Undercover, while 3DS will tour with games like Animal Crossing, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Mario Kart 7.

Nintendo is still running a separate Nintendo Unleashed Tour at consumer shows like MCM for upcoming titles like Super Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8.
