If you’re anywhere near Mississauga, Ontario or Burnaby, British Columbia and you’re itching to explore New Donk City, then you’ll want to clear your schedule this weekend and next week. Similar to the E3 events that Nintendo hosted throughout the United States at select Best Buy locations, Nintendo will have dedicated kiosks placed at Erin Mills Town Centre (Mississauga) and Metropolis at Meltdown (Burnaby), both locations providing the opportunity to play Super Mario Odyssey.

Here’s the rundown of information from the site:

“Registration for available time slots to play the Super Mario Odyssey game will begin on Saturday, June 10th at 12PM local time at each Nintendo Kiosk. Be sure to come early, as there are a limited number of time slots. (First come, first served. One time slot per person).

Time slots will fall within the following dates and times:

Tuesday, June 13th 2017
Erin Mills Town Centre at 3PM ET – 9PM ET
Metropolis at Metrotown at 12PM PT – 9PM PT

Wednesday, June 14th 2017
Erin Mills Town Centre at 10AM ET – 9PM ET
Metropolis at Metrotown at 10AM PT – 9PM PT

Thursday, June 15th 2017
Erin Mills Town Centre at 10AM ET – 9PM ET
Metropolis at Metrotown at 10AM PT – 9PM PT

We recommend arriving at least 10 minutes prior to your registered time slot to check in. Please bring the access badge that you received upon registration and photo ID to check-in.”

Nintendo is also bringing some E3 swag and throwing a bit of a contest. Are you a bit of a coin collector, or do you want to buy some merch that’ll be there? Then get your pre-orders ready!

“From June 10th – June 15th, show us your receipt with two select Nintendo Switch game preorders from a any retailer and get a high quality Mario Universe Challenge Coin (available while supplies last)! The pre-ordered games have to be two of the following titles: Super Mario Odyssey, ARMS and Splatoon 2 for the Nintendo Switch console. You can also enter a draw for your chance to WIN $100 Nintendo Kiosk credit to spend on items available at the Kiosk!”

For specific rules for the contest, you can check out the official rules. Make sure to take note of this stipulation: “Also during the Contest Entry Period, Event participants may complete and submit one (1) additional Entry by showing event staff a receipt for the pre-order of any two (2) of the following games: Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2 and ARMS.”

If you’re still on the ropes about ARMS or are Switch-less, and you want to give it a go, you’ll be able to try the game out on June 17th and 18th from 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. (local time).

Will you be stopping by to try out Super Mario Odyssey?
