It’s been a long time since we’ve gotten any new information about the upcoming legend of Zelda game, though that will change next month when the game will be Nintendo’s sole E3 offering. However, Nintendo is giving fans a shot at actually playing the game at their New York store, though only a limited amount of people.

It all kicks off on June 11th with the “Super-Fan Signup Day,” with the first 500 people to show up at the store being given a wristband that can be exchanged for a ticket. This ticket is then redeemed to be able to play the game during specific time slots from June 14th to June 19th.

“The six-day free event will begin at noon ET on June 14, when fans will be invited to watch gameplay of The Legend of Zelda live-streamed from Nintendo’s booth at this year’s E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles to the 15-foot gaming screen inside Nintendo NY,” the company explained in a press release. This will be the world’s first in-depth look at the game. Then at 3 p.m. ET, the first of 500 fans will begin sampling the game for the first time.

“From June 15 to June 19, Nintendo experts will also be giving guided game-play demonstrations on the big screen for everyone to watch and enjoy. Several fans may even get the chance to participate in guided demonstrations. There will also beThe Legend of Zelda trivia for a chance for fans to win fun prizes.”

The Legend of Zelda is set to be launching on both the Wii U and NX next year.
