Nintendo NY hosting The Legend of Zelda Extravaganza event June 14 – 19

Legend-of-Zelda-Wii-U-artDo you want to be one of the first gamers in the world to get your hands on Nintendo’s new Wii U The Legend of Zelda title? Well, if you’re willing to line-up at the Nintendo NY store in NYC’s Rockefeller Plaza, you can definitely do just that.

Of course, only the first 500 on line to pick up a bracelet will be able to get some guaranteed hands-on with the title, but Nintendo has a 5-days of festivities planned for everyone who visits.  All the fun coincides with the big reveal during the E3, including the live Nintendo Treehouse event.

See all the details below!

From June 14 through June 19, 500 Nintendo fans will be among the first people in the world to play The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U console at the Nintendo NY store. The 500 fans will be selected during a Super-Fan Signup Day, which will be held on Saturday, June 11. Only the first 500 eligible people in line when Nintendo NY opens at 9 a.m. ET will receive a wristband that they can exchange for a ticket, which guarantees them a spot to play the game during selected times June 14-19. (Fans can start lining up at 7 a.m. ET on June 11. Photo ID is required, and minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.)

The six-day free event will begin at noon ET on June 14, when fans will be invited to watch gameplay of The Legend of Zelda live-streamed from Nintendo’s booth at this year’s E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles to the 15-foot gaming screen inside Nintendo NY. This will be the world’s first in-depth look at the game. Then at 3 p.m. ET, the first of 500 fans will begin sampling the game for the first time.

From June 15 to June 19, Nintendo experts will also be giving guided game-play demonstrations on the big screen for everyone to watch and enjoy. Several fans may even get the chance to participate in guided demonstrations. There will also be The Legend of Zelda trivia for a chance for fans to win fun prizes.
