Nintendo will allow 500 fans to play the still untitled Legend of Zelda game for Wii U in New York City far ahead of its launch.
Registration for the event begins on June 11th at 9 a.m. ET at the Nintendo store in New York. You’ll need to show up early with a photo ID and, if you’re one of the first 500 people in line, then you’ll receive a wristband which can be turned in for a ticket to the event.
The actual event takes place between June 14th and 19th. Below you’ll find a full breakdown of the schedule by date and time. Events without a listed time run throughout the day during the store’s usual hours of operation.

The next Legend of Zelda game is set to launch sometime in 2017 for both the Wii U and Nintendo’s mysterious NX console. The NX is set to launch sometime in March of the same year, but it’s unclear if the new Zelda game will be available at the system’s release. You can expect more information about Zelda from Nintendo at E3 2016, as it will be the only playable game they show at the event this year.
