With HYPER JAPAN 2014 just around the corner, Nintendo is busy putting the final preparations in place ahead of its big game showcase. Anyone visiting the show in Earls Court, London, from 25 – 27 July 2014 will have a chance to get their hands on a raft of games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS & 2DS, some of which will be playable by the UK public for the first time including Super Smash Bros. on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.
At HYPER JAPAN there will be four key areas on the Nintendo stand for gamers to enjoy: Wii U, Nintendo 3DS & 2DS, Tomodachi Life and merchandise from the Nintendo UK Online Store.
Visitors to the Nintendo stand will also have the chance to go hunting for beasts in Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on Nintendo 3DS as well as take an exclusive sneak peak at amiibo, Nintendo’s recently announced NFC-activated interactive figures. Not only will there be the opportunity to get hands on with some pre-release games, but guests will be able to burn rubber with their friends while turning their world upside-down with the gravity-defying Mario Kart 8 on Wii U.
Visitors will also be able to buy a range of merchandise normally only available on the Nintendo UK Online Store.
“We have a packed line up of games coming out this year and HYPER JAPAN gives us the perfect opportunity to share the fun with our fans ahead of launch. Early reactions to Super Smash Bros. on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS have been great and we’re pleased to be able to bring these titles to the UK public for the first time as part of HYPER JAPAN.”
