Minneapolis — Best Buy will provide limited in-store demos of unreleased Nintendo titles concurrent with their trade debut at next month’s E3 show.

Nintendo said the Wii U games will include “a select list” of E3 introductions, and will be available for play at 89 Best Buy stores in the U.S. and 21 in Canada.

Demos will be held Wednesday, June 12, and Saturday, June 15, from 4-8 p.m. only. E3 opens in Los Angeles on June 11.

A store-finder for participating Best Buy locations is available here.

The preview is believed to be the first time multiple gaming titles will be made widely available to the public for in-store trial prior to their release.

Nintendo introduced the Wii U gaming system last November. The HD platform features a home console and a 6.2-inch LCD touchscreen GamePad controller that are sold together for $300.
