Nintendo is doing something a little different for E3 this year. Instead of a large press conference, it will be hosting a specialized Nintendo Direct, and giving fans access to some of the line-up through a partnership with Best Buy. Today the company announced the participating stores along with dates and times, so you can start planning your E3 week accordingly.

The full list includes 110 locations, including 89 in the United States and 21 in Canada. You can play the demos on Wednesday, June 12 between 4-8 PM, or on Saturday June 15 between 1-5 PM.
