Visitors to this year’s SXSW Gaming Expo are being invited by Nintendo to experience its unreleased games for both the new Wii U home console and the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system.
The three-day event will feature the public debut for several Nintendo 3DS games in North America, including a guided demo opportunity with Animal Crossing: New Leaf, as well as playable demos for Nintendo eShop titles HarmoKnight and Kersploosh!
Visitors can also play unreleased Wii U titles like the open-world fun of LEGO City Undercover, the high-octane racing of Need for Speed Most Wanted U from Electronic Arts and the team-based action of Monster Hunter Ultimate from Capcom.

“Hearing about upcoming games is one thing, but with Nintendo the proof is always in the playing,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.
“SXSW is where fans of all types of entertainment and technology come together, and we’ll have games on hand to excite every type of visitor.”
The SXSW Gaming Expo is open to the public and runs March 8-10 at the Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road, Austin, Texas, 78704.
According to Nintendo, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS feature parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access.
