Nintendo’s first HD gaming console is already slated for a blockbuster release in hopes to rival that of its predecessor, the Wii, but to boost things further, the day after it’s released, November 19th, the system will be featured alongside several other hot new products in the Nintendo Holiday Mall Experience, where customers will have the privilege of testing out the Wii U, its games, the 3DS and several new games for the 3DS. There will also be game competitions, free giveaways and a chance to chat it up with everyone’s favorite heroic plumber, Mario. “Nintendo has something for everyone on your holiday shopping list,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Whether you want to test drive Wii U with the revolutionary Wii U GamePad controller, check out some great games for Nintendo 3DS or just take a fun break from a busy shopping day, the Nintendo Mall Experience is your oasis from the shopping mall melee.”
