Nintendo have announced they will be attending this year PAX event. The event is held in Seattle’s Washington State Convention Centre, from August 31st to September 2nd. Nintendo will be showing off some big games like Zombie U, New Super Mario Bros U and Nintendo Land on Wii U. They’ll also be showing off big games on the 3DS, such as Luigis Mansion 2: Dark Moon. Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. Here are full details on the PAX event.

This year’s PAX Prime event will be action-packed, thanks to special game sampling opportunities and activities from Nintendo. Taking place Aug. 31 through Sept. 2 at Seattle’s Washington State Convention Center, the show will offer attendees the opportunity to play the groundbreaking Wii U™ system and several upcoming games, including Pikmin™ 3, ZombiU™ and New Super Mario Bros.™ U. The Wii U console launches this holiday season and introduces the Wii U GamePad, a controller with a 6.2-inch touch screen that redefines how people interact with their games, their entertainment and one another. The Nintendo booth (#462) will be the site of hands-on Wii U game demos, giving fans an early chance to check out the system’s unique integrated second-screen gaming experiences.
PAX Prime attendees can also visit the Nintendo Gaming Lounge on levels 2 and 3 of the North Galleria to experience unreleased games for the Nintendo 3DS™ and Nintendo DS™ hand-held systems and a special Kirby™ game collection for the Wii™ console. All Nintendo 3DS software will be playable on the new Nintendo 3DS XL, which features 90 percent larger screens compared to Nintendo 3DS. Fans of the Kirby, Paper Mario™ and Kid Icarus™ series will enjoy one-of-a-kind opportunities to celebrate these extraordinary franchises, and the Nintendo Gaming Lounge will include a special Pokémon™ area, where fans can gather to battle and trade with other Pokémon Trainers.
On Aug. 31 at 6:30 p.m., a live Kid Icarus™: Uprising multiplayer tournament will take place in the Nintendo Gaming Lounge on the third floor of the Washington State Convention Center, challenging new and experienced players to show their skills. Tournament participants are encouraged to bring their own Nintendo 3DS system and copy of the game, and will compete in wireless three-on-three Light vs. Dark multiplayer battles. The first, second and third place winners will receive a Core Set of the Kid Icarus: Uprising AR Cards, containing more than 400 AR Cards that have been released to date, as well as Nintendo Prepaid Cards. Tournament participants will receive Kid Icarus: Uprising Series 2 AR Card packs while supplies last. Series 2 AR Card packs will also be given away in the Nintendo booth during show hours, while supplies last.
On Sept. 1, Kirby fans are invited to take part in a special Guinness World Records® attempt to celebrate Kirby’s 20th anniversary and the upcoming launch of Kirby’s Dream Collection: Special Edition for Wii. The attempt will take place on the fourth floor of the Washington State Convention Center (4A). Participants will aim to break the record for the most people blowing a chewing gum bubble simultaneously. PAX Prime attendees will witness a sea of pink bubbles that resemble Kirby himself and pay tribute to his two decades of video game fun.
Meanwhile, PAX Prime attendees will be able to hunt and collect stickers being distributed throughout the venue (while supplies last) in celebration of the Nov. 11 launch of Paper Mario™: Sticker Star for Nintendo 3DS. Attendees will be challenged to find three game-themed stickers by following clues posted on Nintendo’s official Twitter account, @NintendoAmerica. Consumers who collect all three stickers and bring them to a Nintendo representative at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge will be awarded a special bonus sticker. A collectible Paper Mario: Sticker Star sticker book will be given away at retailers nationwide closer to the launch of the game, giving PAX Prime attendees a way to proudly showcase their collection. More details about the sticker book will be revealed at a later time.
