Nintendo’s got a lot of games coming out before the end of the year, and according to their schedule for PAX Prime this weekend, fans can expect to get their hands on a lot of the hottest titles a few months before their release.
On the show floor, there’s a mix of upcoming and already released titles for fans to play. For the new games, expect to see Super Mario Maker (to be released September 11th), Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash (October 9th), The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (October 23rd), and Star Fox Zero (November 20th). Older games featured will include Splatoon and its Autobots vs. Decepticons themed Splatfest, plus the ever-popular Super Smash Bros. Wii U.
Missing from that list is Xenoblade Chronicles X, which comes out this December, but Nintendo promises we’ll get new gameplay, information, and concept art during a panel on August 29.
Attendees can participate in several PAX-sponsored 3DS tournaments for games such as Super Smash Bros. 3DS, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Obviously, attendees must bring their own 3DS systems and games to participate.
In the world of figurines, Nintendo promises that several upcoming amiibo will be on display, and Skylanders SuperChargers Racing will be premiering Bowser and Donkey Kong.
Finally, in the nearby Sheraton Seattle Hotel, Nintendo will set up a lounge for independent Wii U and 3DS titles like The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, and more.
PAX Prime will take place from August 28th to August 31st at the Washington State Convention Center.
