Demo kiosks in stores - why showcase Rayman Legends?

I have never seen a Wii U kiosk running NSMBU or Nintendoland and it baffles me why they would try to demo Rayman Legends instead, especially given the whole debacle behind its delayed launch.

NSMBU and Nintendoland both seem like a better "look at this system" kinds of games.

All the demo systems I've used allow you to choose which demo to play on a menu screen, NSMBU and Rayman Legends are the only playable ones, but I remember there being an option to watch gameplay of Lego City and other games.

Dunno, I guess maybe NSMBU doesn't entirely showcase the system and Nintendo land would have to bee limited to only a few games?

Lets be honest if they showed NSMBU this is what would happen. "Mommy look Wii U! Mario Bros!" "Hunny you already have that game and a wii."

Well it's not like Rayman Legends is dramatically different from Origins at a glance.

My Wii U kiosks around town only have Legends as playable and other games as videos.

Those early demo kiosks aren't even functional hardware. They're actually running on a Linux computer that's located beneath the Wii U stand.

they have the PC version of Darksiders 2 running on WiiU in 1080 native at 60 fps and full graphics options on. Neither 360 or PS3 can come close
