While the majority of us may not get a chance to witness the spectacle that is E3 in person, Nintendo has brought a small sample of the experience to fans the past couple of years by showcasing some of its E3 demos at select Best Buy stores. This year, despite the company’s unorthodox plans for the big expo, it will be doing something similar, albeit in a much more limited capacity.
Rather than teaming up with electronic chain Best Buy once again, Nintendo will be showcasing a playable demo for the next Legend of Zelda title at the Nintendo NY store for select fans. The lucky winners will be selected during Super-Fan Signup Day on June 11, and only the first 500 visitors will be eligible to enter. Nintendo NY will feature the Legend of Zelda demo for the entirety of E3, from June 14 to June 19, and will host a number of other events throughout the week, including guided demonstrations, live-streamed footage of the game at E3, a trivia contest, and an opportunity for the 500 select fans to go hands-on with the anticipated title.
Super-Fan Signup Day begins at 9 AM Eastern Time on June 11. Fans can begin lining up for the event at 7 AM and must bring with them a photo ID.
