Over the past few months, Nintendo fans in the US have had a chance to check out the new console in various Wii U Experience events held around major cities in the country. Hundreds, if not thousands, of gamers in the US have already had a chance to play the Wii U, and now their fellow Nintendo fans in the United Kingdom will get a chance too.
