Most of you have probably guessed this already but, yes, you will be able to play the Wii U at the EB Games Expo next weekend.
Rumours have been circulating for a while now, to the extent that it would have been a major disappointment if Nintendo hadn't brought its new toy to the Expo. But now it's confirmed and you can rest easy. You will be able to stand in a massive line and play the console. And it will be a massive line.
"We are incredibly excited to be able to showcase Nintendo’s innovative new Wii U game console to Australian consumers at this year’s EB Games Expo," said Steve Wilson, Managing Director of EB Games Australia and New Zealand. "EB Games Expo will be the first time gamers in Australia get to go hands on with Wii U."
It is a pretty big coup for the EB Games Expo: New Super Mario Bros. U, ZombiU, Darksiders II, and Assassin's Creed III will all apparently be playable.
Also, the voice of Mario Charles Martinet— that cheeky little minstrel — will also be attending the Expo and, presumably, saying things like 'wahoo' and 'it's-a-me' with alarming regularity.
