Nintendo has held fast to the idea that when gamers try out the Wii U, they will "get it." The Mario maker is giving gamers just that opportunity prelaunch, as the company is now beginning to roll out interactive Wii U kiosks in more than 5,000 retailers across the United States.
Gamers can find a Wii U demo station at a handful of retailers, including Target, Best Buy, GameStop, Walmart, and Toys "R" Us. Kiosk content will vary by location; some kiosks will allow gamers to pick up a GamePad and play games, while others will only feature video content.
Gamers can find a Wii U kiosk near them by plugging in their zip code at Nintendo's special events website.
The Wii U is due out in North America on November 18 beginning at $300 for an 8GB basic model and scaling to $350 for the 32GB deluxe version that includes a copy of Nintendo Land.
The first high-definition system from Nintendo will launch with 23 titles, including Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Assassin's Creed III.
