Nintendo has launched a new program called [email protected] that lets you play the E3 demos of nine upcoming indie games that are heading to Wii U from home, or wherever you might be. You can download the nine demos on the Wii U eShop from now until 8:59 AM PST on June 22nd.
Not only that, but as long as you’ve linked your Nintendo Network ID to your Wii U and eShop account before you download each demo, you can get 15 percent off each of these games for up to one month after they’ve launched on Wii U.
Moving on to the games themselves, you can see the full list below along with their expected release dates, as well as videos that show you how they play and a description.
