Reggie To List Four Playable Games At Best Buy After Nintendo Direct

mario_bigNintendo of America has sent out a gentle reminder that the E3 focussed Nintendo Direct will be scooting its way over to us at the beginning of next week. But they’ve also detailed that NoA’s president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime will be giving us the low-down on what games to expect at Best Buy stores across North America. You can check out the official press release below:

Remember to visit on June 11 at 7 a.m. PT to view Nintendo Direct@E3 2013, which will provide updates about upcoming Wii U games. After the video, Reggie will announce the four Wii U games that will be available during the Nintendo Experience at Best Buy on Nintendo’s social media channels. Fans can play these unreleased games at select locations around the country. For more details, visit


  1. 142nd

    Just kidding. My guess that they will be 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Windwaker HD, and Wii Fit U.

    1. Very likely…

      Maybe Retro’s game instead of Wii Fit U or Yoshi’s Yarn aswell…

      1. Something tells me that game isn’t far enough along yet though. It could be. I guess we’ll find out in a couple of days.

        1. Retros Game has been in development for YEARS. It was supposed to be shown at E3 last year. It will be out this year and it will deffinitly be playable.

    2. I was kinda hoping Smash Bros. although i guess it still wouldn’t be in a playable state yet. a man can dream though can’t he? XD

    3. Probably not Wii Fit U. Do they really have room to have people squatting on the balance board in the middle of a Best Buy store? I think you’re right about the other three though. The fourth could be Yarn Yoshi or perhaps something we don’t know about yet if we’re lucky (Retro’s game?). If we’re unlucky, it will be Pikmin 3 again (not that I don’t love Pikmin, I’ve just seen enough already).

      1. I agree. They showed Wii Fit U on last year´s E3 conference. I believe there´s no reason to talk about that game again. A Wii Fit U floor booth is just enough. I do believe that the 4th game will be the Retro project.

    1. Mario Kart Wii sold over 30 million…

      Mario Kart U could sell atleast 15% more…

  2. Im planning on going to one of the events, so im really hoping that 1. Most people will go on the first day (even if that’s unlikely), and 2. There are good games to play. Im hoping for basically what xpander2k said, Mario Kart WiiU and Windwaker HD. I wish they would have SSBU be available to play, but I don’t think it is that far along in development.

  3. I’m hoping for playable demos for 3D Mario, Mario Kart U, Bayonetta 2, and (don’t hold your breath because it’s unlikely) Super Smash Bros. 4.

  4. Since its basically unreleased games.

    1. Pikmin 3
    2. Wonderful 101
    3. Wii Fit U
    4. Mario (whichever you want it to be)

    1. They already stated that atleast Mario 3D and Mario Kart U would be playable…

    2. @Ravyu..I definitely think that you have a pretty accurate list. Since demos can sometimes create a positive or negative reaction, I think Nintendo is going to release demos of games that’s virtually complete, such as, Pikmin 3 and the W101. The demos of these games have a less likely chance of being flawed since they’re basically done. Also, I think Wii U fit will be another one to attract that causal gamer. Finally, I’m thinking maybe 3D Mario or Mario kart. Anyhow, thankfully their E3 demos will be at my Best Buy so I will get a chance to play. I’m loving their new approach to E3. Makes me feel that I’m somewhat apart of the festivities!

  5. I came across this video I thought Nintendo fans would LOVE. here u are no need to thanks

    1. Okay buddy good try, but it’s okay, you don’t have to feel ashamed that you like that music. Being gay is for the most part socially acceptable. XD

  6. Mario Kart and 3D Mario will be 2 of them.
    As for the others, i duno. Can we count out that Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3 wont be 2 of them?
    I’d say Retro’s game, and the 4th spot is anyones game (literally)

  7. In the post it says go to the Nintendo Direct site to watch, then on the site it says to watch go to Me confuse!

  8. My guess is 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Pikmin 3, and Wind Waker. Nintendo has demoed Zelda games in stores before, and it would really show off the system.
