COLUMN: Aaron's Backstage Pass: Wii U Tour

Created: 07/09/2013 10:37 AM By: Aaron Chalich

Last week I was at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN and I came across the Wii U Tour exhibit and it was amazing.  There were tons of little rooms set up with couches and Nintendo themed pillows where people could sit down and try all of the new games coming out for the Wii U.   
Some of the games that were available were “Pikmin 3,” “Wonderful 101,” “New Super Luigi U,” and “The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD.”  Plus you can also play some of the fun new games that were just released on the Wii U and 3DS like, “Injustice Gods Among Us,” “Lego City Undercover,” “Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate,” “Animal Crossing: New Leaf” and “Resident Evil Revelations.”

I really thought that it was great and that there were enough Wii U’s that you really didn’t have to wait very long to play.

There are also a lot of people from Nintendo working at every station and walking around to answer questions about all of the games.  They were very friendly and were also very knowledgeable about the games.  They made the whole experience very enjoyable.  They would also sit with you and play some of the games, which was really nice because they could explain how to play the game.

I got the chance to talk to David Young who is the Assistant Manager in Public Relations at Nintendo about the Wii U Tour and some of the new games coming out this year.

I would highly recommend that you stop out at the Mall of America to check out Nintendo’s Wii U Tour.  It’s a great way to see and play the Wii U if you have not already and to also play some of the great new games that are coming out this year.

The Wii U Tour will be at the Mall of America now until July 21st.

Hours are: 
Sunday  - Thursday (11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) 
Friday & Saturday (11 a.m. to 8 p.m.) 
Located at the West Market Square
