Best Buy Wii U E3 Demos Revealed?


Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime previously confirmed that four Wii U demos will be available to play at select Best Buy locations across North America. Fils-Aime declined to reveal which four E3 titles gamers will be able to play after June 11th. A recent post on social site Reddit reveals that the four games could be New Super Luigi U, Pikmin 3, The Wonderful 101, and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD.

Thanks to everyone that sent this in.


    1. Uhh hello! I cant wate to go to best buy with mother because i lvoe her and play these games it will be so fun and i will have a lot of fun playin and while im there i can pick up lego city undercover for wii u because i love it.

        1. When was he funny ? I always got more of a disturbing psychotic vibe from him…

    2. Just to point out that Wii U is misspelled on the flyer (i.e. no space “WiiU”), so this is a fan made flyer.

      1. That sounds dumb as hell. Thats not the way to show WIIU off. Other than 101 thas a shitty list. We dont want that Nintendo is kiddy stigma again this generation.

    1. Wait and see. This was what I was expecting , maybe one or 2 more suprises and a Show reel of game trailers…

    2. These are just the Best Buy Demo’s.
      Games coming out soon.
      We sure as hell better hear a lot more about OTHER games during the E3 Nintendo Direct…

  1. Yeah.. That’s what I was afraid of.. I’m stoked for Wind Waker.. But I was hoping for more.

  2. I doubt the Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 would be the playable since we really know their gameplay.

    1. And there were demos of those two games at last years E3. It would be disappointing to say the least if those games were a focus again.

  3. Id rather play luigi U this month at home and windwaker on gamecube and just watch that game online to see the graphics difference. Pikmin i can hold off for its release and 101 as well. If it were the new mario game id check it out or mario kart.

  4. It’s fake. WW’s logo is the GC version (which I doubt will be used in the Wii U version).

    1. You’re making the mistake of thinking Nintendo made that poster. They obviously didn’t. That’s a 5 minutes in Microsoft Word job by a random Best Buy employee, not professional marketing material produced by Nintendo.

      Shops often create their own posters and advertisements for stuff. There was the famous case of a UK retailer (I forget which one) had a poster of 3DS mockup with two circle pads on it.

      And the GAME shop near me, had Wii U posters printed in black and white…with typos on them…

      If this is real, it’s produced by someone from Best Buy, not Nintendo. They’ve obviously been told what the games will be, and have just googled for the images.

      1. I never said Nintendo made it. I’m saying that it’s fake considering the WW logo is the GC version, which I doubt will be used again for the Wii U version. And if Best Buy was gonna put it on their demo showcase, wouldn’t they get the new logo for the game from Nintendo?

        1. Well look at the couple of examples I mentioned of shops making their own advertising.

          If they don’t get official marketing material, they’ll make their own. And their own attempts are bound to be shit. If some random Best Buy employee (probably someone that knows nothing about games) got asked to make the advertisements for this event, they’d just google whatever games they’re told to and choose whatever comes up first.

    2. It could be plausible. They haven’t unveiled the Wind Waker HD logo yet, and they could be just recycling the old one.

  5. Pikmin and W101? Yea, pretty sure both of those are going to be there. Luigi and Windwaker? No, that would be stupid.

    1. Doubt both Pikmin 3 and W101 will be there. They’re basically the same game. Better off picking one and choosing something else to go with the other 2.

  6. Fucking stupid. The drive won’t be worth my time unless they AT LEAST have 3D Mario playable.

          1. That would really suck. Then again Nintendo probably thought that if games like 3D Mario and Mario Kart were there then every Best Buy that’s participating would’ve been swamped by the hardcore Nintendo fans and normal people who don’t have a Wii U just walking in wouldn’t get to play. I really hope this isn’t what Nintendo is actually doing.

  7. It’s kind of expected, no way they would have demos from games that will be revealed on tuesday…

      1. Yes, I saw a video of someone play w101 and i know someone who played pikmin 3 at best buy already. NSLU is basically the same as NSMBU and Wind Waker is an old game.

        1. besides you have the same thing i would have said…. why not bring better demos, than a copy and paste dlc and a remake?????? the other two have similarities to each other too. why not like yoshi yarn and mario kart, x is to big and smash bros wont be done for a couple of years its not ready to play….. some people with smash bros doy aahh ddduuurrrr aahhhh hhuurrrrr!!!!!!

  8. nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  9. this is bullshit, cause 3d mario and mariokart both will be in playing form at the e3,why nintendo dont choose those games?

    just be patience and we shall see!

  10. … … Nintendo placed 2 best buys in my state. Both in small towns… not even in the main cities of my state where people actually live.

  11. Imbeciles, it was confirmed a long time ago that Mario 3D and Kart U will be playable during E3.

  12. Fake. Three of those games will be out around the end of summer. My guess is Super Mario U, Mario Kart 8, Sonic Lost World, mabey Wind Waker HD or somthing else.

  13. I call fake but if it’s true, I’m really disappointed. One is unnecessary DLC, one is a game that should’ve been ready 7 months ago, and another is a remake (of a great game). I really don’t want to have to drive 30 minutes to play just this. I was expecting a Mario Kart or Retro Studios demo. I was wishing for a Smash Bros. demo but I didn’t even expect it.

    1. nevertheless we will still be seeing these games at E3 on the Direct wither by game-play or trailer wise. I would like to see the 3D mario and Mario kart U in best buys but yeah what ever goes…I doubt we would even see a playable version of Smash bros at this point so all we have to do is long now. :)

    1. dont know maybe because they want other titles to get the attention. really i dont know but that list is stupid for several reasons.

  14. Hello, what were people expecting? Nintendo said they will set up games at best buys. They have the mandate to market as the choose. As for myself I shall watch their directs.

    1. All Commanders, including myself will be watching as our Nintendomination begins on tuesday…

      And after that, gamers will drool and wait in agony to get a hold of these wonderful new games…

  15. I really do hope this is bullshit. New Super Luigi U should not be a demo and absolutely does not “Bring E3 to the people.” That just brings a soon-to-be-released DLC pack to Best Buy a couple weeks early. If 3D Mario and Mario Kart U are going to be playable at E3 on the show floor, they should be playable at these Best Buy locations.

    That being said, those who were actually expecting a Smash Bros. demo can go drown in feces. It’s been in development for… just over a year. You should be grateful they’re at least showing a trailer to begin with.

  16. The Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 and Wind Waker HD Demos sound cool but a New Super Luigi U demo is bullshit the “game” is coming out in just a few weeks and it’s just DLC it’s not like it’s a brand new game. I would much rather have the new 3D mario or new mario kart replace the NSLU Demo.

  17. This doesn’t excite me in the least bit, because I almost KNOW that my local Best Buy will NOT be one of them with these demos. They never get ANYTHING. They still don’t even have any Wii U kiosks. I mean, of all Best Buy stores, the only one I can go to is the one that always gets overlooked, just because it’s a smaller store.

  18. NO!!!!!!! My friends and I took off a day of work just so we could go and play these demos. This list had better not be it. This is an absolute SHIT LIST (for clarity: the games themselves are not shit but it would be a dick move by Nintendo to show off demos of games we have known about for awhile and really do not care to play the demo to).

  19. Pikmin 3 and W101, I expect due to them being virtually complete. Less chance of an error occurring in the game. However, Wind Waker is surprising. If this list I’d true, the most disappointing out the bunch would be New Luigi U. Don’t need downloadable DLC to convince more people to purchase a Wii U, but more games.

  20. This is FAKE completely. Nintendo doesn’t Cooper Black font in their lifestyle branding. The color of band is also cyan and which is not the shade color they use. It also looks like someone photocopied two pieces of paper together. The Windwaker logo is also the Gamecube version.

    It looks like a kid did the design and totally out of place, this is speaking from someone who does this professionally.

  21. If this was true then it is really disappointing. Mario Kart and Brawl should be there as people will relate to it and gameplay is easy to understand. Also, it can excite gamers and bystanders in such a short span of playtime. Pikmin and Windwaker won’t do that. Can everyone who is concerned message Nintendo E3 community on Wii U so they know what the fans want. This should be a joint effort.

  22. Oh please, oh please let this just be a fake rumor. It would be the most disappointing thing EVAR! PLEASE DON’T BE TRUE!!! T~T

  23. People are crazy for expecting Mario Kart U or the new Smash Bros. to be one of the playable demos. The new Smash Bros. probably won’t even be released until the holiday season 2014. And Mario Kart U, it might be a long time before that’s released as well. Same with the new 3D Mario game. It’s most likely going to be games that have already been announced and shown (Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3 etc.), and games that will be released in the near future. Nintendo has never allowed people to play games that was a year or more away from being released (as far as I know).

  24. Jeez, people, are you trying to do a parrot of the worst of the Sonic fan-base? Always a reason to bitch, never ever satisfied?
    Just be glad they’re doing SOMETHING that lets us play unreleased games. Or have you guys forgotten that E3 is normally barred from the general public?
    Good Lord….

  25. This better be fake.. This isn’t how Nintendo should do this, they should of shown the main games that we are excited about for E3.. xD And why would they have a E3 demo of SLU when that game for the E-shop comes out in about 10 days? Maybe it’s for the retail version?

  26. Why are people so gullible and stupid online? Of course there will be more. My god…
