Nintendo has announced it will once again bring E3 to the people as a select number of fans will be able to play The Legend of Zelda for Wii U at its flagship store in New York City.
Those who wish to get their hands on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will need to sign up on Saturday, June 11, which Nintendo is calling its “Super-Fan Signup Day.” Fans can start lining up on this day at 7am ET, although you’ll need a photo ID and minors need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
A total of 500 fans will be selected on June 11, which will then need to be among the first 500 eligible people in line when the Nintendo NY store opens at 9am ET between June 14 through June 19. Those eligible to partake in the experience will be given a wristband that can be exchanged for a ticket, which will guarantee them a spot to play The Legend of Zelda for Wii U.
On June 14th, fans will be able to watch a livestream of gameplay of The Legend of Zelda at 12pm ET, which will be presented from Nintendo’s booth at E3. Then at 3pm ET, the first 500 fans will be able to play the game for themselves.
Nintendo is no stranger to offering samples of its E3 lineup of games to fans during the show as the company has allowed them to play games like Mario Kart 8, Super Mario Maker, and more. Given the fact Nintendo will mainly be focusing on The Legend of Zelda during this year’s E3, it isn’t surprising to see them offer a similar experience during this year’s show. Just be sure to line up early as we're sure there are going to be thousands trying to get their hands on the game.
