Nintendo is giving a number of lucky fans the chance to become the first members of the public to play “The Legend of Zelda” for Wii U in New York from June 14-19.
It will coincide with the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 that will be held from June 14-16.
Here are the three things to know for the fans who want to play the “The Legend of Zelda” for Wii U.
1. First come, First Served.
A limited number of East Coast fans will be allowed to play “The Legend Of Zelda” at the Nintendo store at 10 Rockefeller Plaza in New York. The special event is dubbed as the Nintendo NY “The Legend of Zelda” Experience.
The first 500 fans to line up when the store opens at 9 am on Saturday, June 11 (Super-Fan Signup Day), will get a wristband that will give them access to play the game at the store from June 14 to June 19, Zelda Universe reported.
Fans may start lining up at 7 am. Keep in mind that no lines will be allowed to form before that time.
