Nintendo will have a massive presence at PAX Prime in Seattle this year, with several games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS being playable by attendees. Several events are being scheduled as well, so if you’ll be going to PAX Prime this year you may want to check out the Nintendo booth to see if there’s anything you want to participate in. PAX Prime is scheduled from August 29 to September 1 in Seattle at the Washington State Convention center.
#SmashBash – Nintendo is taking it to the streets for Nintendo 3DS fans, setting up locations around Seattle for everyone in the city to have a chance to play the new Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo 3DS. Nintendo’s social media channels will announce the location and time of these events, so keep an eye out there.
Hyrule Warriors Event – This event takes place after the main floor for PAX has shut down on Saturday, August 30. Hosted at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel at 515 Madison Street, from 7pm to 10pm, those who attend will be able to play the upcoming game.
