Wii U heading on Aussie tour

To visit most capital cities in Wii U Experience pop-up stores

Gaming company, Nintendo, has announced that its upcoming Wii U console will be touring Australia in a series of pop-up stores across the country commencing on Monday, November 5.

The hands-on experience offer follows the Wii U’s appearance at EB Expo last month.

The Wii U Experience Stores will allow the public to test the Wii U GamePad controller, which Nintendo said will change the in-home gaming experience.

In addition, the pop-ups will feature a range of pre-release titles for the Wii U, as well as a range of recently released 3DS games.

The Wii U will hit Australian retailers on November 30. The ‘Wii U Basic Pack’ (white console with 8GB of internal storage) will have an SRP of $349.95, with the ‘Wii U Premium Pack’ (black console with 32GB storage, Nintendo Land game, console stand, and charging cradle) coming in at an SRP of $429.95. Both figures are, as always, higher than the US prices ($US299 for Basic, $US349 for Premium).

Check out the Wii U Experience Stores at the following locations:

  • Sydney – Sydney Plaza (November 5 to 9)
  • Melbourne – Fountain Gate (November 5 to 11)
  • Gold Coast – Pacific Fair (November 12 to 17)
  • Brisbane – King Georges Square (November 18 to 23)
  • Adelaide – Rundle Mall (November 24 to 29

Nintendo has made further information regarding its Australian pop-ups available through its website.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
