Nintendo Will Let You Demo Eight Wii U Games At PAX Prime 2012

Posted on August 28, 2012 AT 11:39am

Nintendo’s going to have a rather huge selection of playable games at PAX Prime, with several Wii U and 3DS titles leading the pack. If you didn’t make it to E3 or Gamescom this year, now’s your chance to play.

If the Wii U really is launching in mid-November as rumored, this will be your last chance to see it before it’s out in the wild. Per Nintendo’s press release, these are all the Wii U titles that you can line up for at the convention:

  • ZombiU
  • Pikmin 3
  • New Super Mario Bros. U
  • Project P-100
  • Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
  • Nintendo Land
  • Scribblenauts Unlimited
  • Trine 2: Director’s Cut
Nine games for the 3DS will also be shown off, although some of them are already out (New Super Mario Bros. 2Mario Kart 7, and Kid Icarus: Uprising). Here’s the six upcoming, unreleased titles that you’ll get to see at Booth #462:
  • Paper Mario: Sticker Star
  • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask
  • Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon
  • Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!
  • Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion
  • Skylanders Giants

Additionally, Nintendo will be showing off the Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition for Wii, as well as hosting a bubble-gum chewing event where attendees can win prizes and attempt to break a Guiness World Records mark.

Disappointingly, Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 are nowhere to be seen in the list. What gives?!
