500 fans will be able to play the new Legend of Zelda in New York over E3 week

The Legend of Zelda won't just be shown to press at E3 2016; everybody has a chance to get hands-on with the latest incarnation of Link.


500 fans will be able to play the new Legend of Zelda in New York next month

Nintendo has promised to fully reveal the next Legend of Zelda at E3 2016, which is pretty exciting - but those willing to make the pilgrimage to New York during E3 week may even get a chance to play it for themselves.

Front up to the Nintendo store in New York during Super-Fan Signup day on June 11, and if you're among the first 500 in line you'll receive wristband which can then be exchanged for a ticket guaranteeing a preview session sometime during June 15 through June 19. If you're keen on this opportunity, note that you need photo ID, must be accompanied by an adult if you're a minor, and can't start queueing before 7:00am ET.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still rock up to the store during the five day event to view or perhaps even participate in demonstrations on a big screen, and take part in trivia competitions with prizes,

We're expecting the new Legend of Zelda to release on NX as well as Wii U, but as the NX won't be revealed at E3 2016 we probably won't see that version for some months yet.
