Nintendo is extending an invite to all of their fans that are able to stop by San Diego Comic-Con this year. They want you to check out what Nintendo has to offer the masses, to those who will be able to stop by the convention. The name of the game is Nintendo showing off their games, but there will be other things on display that you won’t want to miss!
You’ll want to bring your camera since there will be plenty of photo opportunities with your favorite Nintendo characters. The Play Nintendo Tour has been going cross country all summer and will stop by at Comic-Com in the form of the Play Nintendo Family Lounge. If you’ve ever wanted to sit inside a giant Yoshi egg to play Yoshi’s New Island or on a giant banana peel for Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, this is the place for you!
The Play Nintendo Family Lounge will be housing all kinds of Nintendo fun! There will be a Super Smash Bros for Wii U tournament but the kicker is that it’s for kids twelve years old and younger. This tourney will be on the Nintendo Twitch channel so players who usually aren’t in the Smash Bros spotlight will get their day in the fame! The Play Nintendo challenge will have players partaking in three elimination rounds of Mario Kart 8, Splatoon, and Pokken Tournament. The winner of these mini tourneys will get a Nintendo t-shirt so you’ll want to stop by!
There will also be a Yo-Kai Watch voice actors question-and-answer period, so fans of the video games and anime will want to check this out. Alicyn Packard, J.W. Terry, and Melissa Hutchison, who provide the voices for Jibanyan, Whisper, and Komasan, respectively, will be on hand to answer fan questions and it’s always neat to see what the actual actors look and sound like to compare to their character’s voice! The Family Lounge will be the place where players can give Yo-Kai Watch 2 a test run before it releases to the masses on September 30th.
It wouldn’t be a Nintendo event without playable games, right? You’ll be able to play the likes of Monster Hunter Generations, Yo-Kai Watch, Kirby: Planet Robobot, Pokemon, Mario Kart 8, Pokken Tournament, and everything in between. On the actual show floor at Comic-Con at the Nintendo booth, you’ll be able to see different game play modes for Splatoon as well as new Amiibo challenges to see what they do in-game.
It looks like Nintendo is bringing a lot of toys with them to San Diego this year for Comic-Con and it would be a place I’d want to stop by. I know I would be trying all day to get that Nintendo t shirt at the Play Nintendo Challenge, but that’s just me!
