Perhaps the biggest feather in the cap of the forthcoming Eurogamer Expo, comes the news that the show has managed secure playable Wii U hardware for eager show-goers to get their grubby mitts on.
It will mark the first time that the Wii U will be playable in the UK; some two months before the new console actually releases.
In terms of what you can expect to try on the show floor itself, we’re told that New Super Mario Bros U, NintendoLand and Zombi U will all be present.
Tickets are, unbelieveably, still available to buy and if you haven’t got one yet you slacker, you can grab them here.
If, for whatever reason you can’t make it to the Expo, yours truly will be on hand with impressions of the Wii U and its software to enlighten and make you jelaous in equal measure.
To celebrate the announcement, Nintendo have a created a natty little video that you can see below:
The Eurogamer Expo is due to take place this year on September 27-30 at Earls Court in London.
