It's been two years since the unveiling of Nintendo's Wii U at E3, so rather than recent years' demonstration of how to use the new technology and Game Pad, the company's E3 news centered on the upcoming releases of classic franchise titles updated for the console.
Many of the Wii U titles will launch in the later part of 2013, in time for the holiday season, while others are planned for 2014. Though the games won't be available for months, Nintendo is making four of the games available for preview play at select Best Buy locations on June 12 and June 15. There, customers can play demos of the just announced Super Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, and Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze.
Read on for a look at the games getting their public play debut this week.
