Nintendo’s Wii U games at Pax East could be the game its confirms for launch September 13
PAX East runs this weekend, and marks the beginning of the end of the video game trade show season along with a hint towards what fans can expect when Nintendo releases Wii U by the end of 2012. Nintendo’s roster at New York’s PAX East is considerably smaller than E3’s, though it’s perhaps an indicator of what we’re going to get when the launch finally arrives.
- Pikmin 3
- Super Mario Bros U
- Nintendo Land
- Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
- Scribblenauts Unlimited
Ubisoft is showing ZombiU, Nintendo’s hosting Pikmin 3, New Super Mario Bros. U, and the minigame collection Nintendo Land, Team Ninja is showing the hardcore Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, Warner Bros. offers Scribblenauts Unlimted, and there is also Trine 2: Director’s Cut.
The 3DS also continues to look strong: upcoming games like Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Luigi’s Manion: Dark Moon are available to play. Outside of Nintendo’s properties, there id Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, and Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?! As for titles already available, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Kid Icarus: Uprising (that also features in a multiplayer tournament), and Mario K Kart 7 are on the show floor.
If you’re in the competitive mood, there is an event where attendees can collect stickers and find three Paper Mario: themeed stickers. If found, take pictures and send them to the @NintendoAmerica Twitter account. Takes the stickers to the Nintendo Lounge and you’ll get a bonus sticker.
As mentioned there is a Kid Icarus: Uprising multiplayer tournament — I never thought I’d be talking about high-level Kid Icarus competitive play. It takes place from 6:30PM on August 31 in the said Nintendo Gaming Loungem though on the third floor exclusively of the Washington State Convention Center.
Nintendo 3DS eShop titles feature. Fluidity: Spin Cycle, Pokedex 3D Pro, Pushom, and 3D Classic: Kirby’s Adventure are the four titles playable Pokemon Conquest, for the Nintendo DS, and Kiby’s Dream Collection will also feature.
