Live In Canada? You Could Try Super Mario Odyssey June 13-15

Remember the good old days when Nintendo would team up with Best Buy stores so gamers could try out some E3 games early? Well that hasn’t happened in awhile, but if you live in Canada you could get to play Super Mario Odyssey next week! Talk about lucky. Granted, it will only be at two select malls and Canada is a huge country, so it might be a bit of a drive for some of you. The full details are listed below:
