    1. Uhh hello! i think nintendo should relese a new home consal in the uk because thay dont like wii u and they shud call it nintendo Ukay? that way it apeels 2 the uk peeple with “uk” in the name and nintendo shud make it 4k resolutoin with prety grafics!

      1. Seriously? Wow… In Australia we don’t get much Nintendo love but we still manage to get at least some nintendo events.. I think it depends if your country has a Nintendo branch eg: Nintendo America, Nintendo UK, Nintendo Australia(sucks).

        1. Well Sweden used to have Club Nintendo until 2006 or so then they closed it because people became basically Xbots and Sonyans everywhere…

          Nintendo Drones are not easy to find nowadays and thus I must keep fighting for the glory of fun…

          However they do sometimes in GAME retail stores do something a bit special now and then but nothing that is considered something near the stuff the US or UK gets…

    1. Not really. This soiunds like shit. They bring LOADS of 3DS games but they only bring 2 OLD wiiu games ? why aren’t they bringing Zelda , Pikmin , Mario 3D world , Sonic and all that stuff ?

      NSMBU and Lego city…. bring some new stuff ffs.

    1. I was just about to say that! I didn’t think that the Independence vote was till next year? Guess I was wrong Nintendo……

        1. They should probably specify that they mean a couple of events far south, at events which you have to pay to get into in general.

  1. Well, that’s bloody useless… 4 Wii U events, and all of them are at bloody airshows.

  2. And the marketing just keeps getting better! And guys were whining about NIntendo not doing anything in Europe. Well how’s this! KEEP IT GOING NINTY!! =)

  3. i went to the one in nottingham its was amazing i came second place in the mario kart 7 tordoment
