Wii U Goes On Nationwide Tour Through September

Nintendo has detailed on an official Wii U Tour 2013 website six iconic locations where Nintendo fans can test drive the Wii U along with several of the currently available games for the platform.  The first location we\’ve already heard about, as the tour kicked off on May 26th in Anaheim, California at Disneyland Resort’s Downtown Disney.  The events are set up as a living room setting with backdrops of some of Nintendo’s most iconic and beloved characters.

Future event locations include:

  • Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, FL – June 5th – June 23rd
  • Navy Pier 600 East Grand Avenue, Chicago, IL – June 28th – July 21st
  • Bloomington, MN – June 28th – July 21st
  • Boston, MA – August 10th – September 2nd
  • Hollywood & Highland Center – August 10th – September 2nd

A few of the venues have yet to be determined, but they have the cities and dates mapped out to coincide to popular vacation destinations throughout the summer months.

Nintendo have also given a list of what can be seen and experienced at these locations:

The events will also let attendees experience the features available on Wii U, to include the eShop, TVii, Wii U Chat, Wii Street U, and more.

Is Nintendo coming to a city near you or a city in your vacation plans? I know I\’ll be making a trip to Hollywood to see it for myself.  Let us know in the comments below.
