Super Smash Bros. heads to PAX Prime
Nintendo was happy to announce that several of the top Nintendo video games set to launch this year will be playable at the PAX Prime convention hosted in Seattle, Washington at the Washington State Convention Center from August 29 to September 1.
The first thing that Nintendo has in store for fans is to bring Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS to various locations around Seattle during the show in order to give people in the city a chance to play the game. They will announce where these events will occur on their social media channels, so if you’re interested, you may wish to stay tuned.
Next up is the Hyrule Warriors event, which will be held in the Renaissance Seattle Hotel at 515 Madison St from 7 to 10 PM. The event is open to the public, so a PAX badge will not be required for entry. It should be noted that attendees will be allowed inside on a first-come, first-served basis, but fans who are cosplaying as characters from the Zelda universe will be able to enter ahead of the general public.
In addition, everybody attending the event wearing Zelda gear or even a Hyrule Warriors shirt (which is available at the event while supplies last) will be able to enter a drawing for a chance to win original Hyrule Warriors concept artwork. In order to enter, fans will need to take a picture against a special backdrop, then tweet the image with specific hashtags, with the winner being chosen at random toward the end of the event. The winner must be present to claim the prize.
Finally, during the show, Nintendo has several other activities and offerings scheduled for their booth, such as a dedicated Pokémon area where fans can meet up to battle and trade.
If you’re more interested in the titles that will show, here’s the full list of games scheduled to make an appearance:
