Nintendo Is Headed To PAX East With Code Name: STEAM And Splatoon

Nintendo will be in Boston, Massachusetts, for the upcoming PAX East event to give attendees hands-on time with the New Nintendo 3DS XL system and a variety of great games. The Nintendo booth (#4072) will also feature Splatoon, Nintendo’s upcoming colourful twist on the shooter genre, at the show. The E3 2014 build of the game lets eight players transform into squids and mark their territory in teams in a race for splattered-paint dominance. Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., which launches for Nintendo 3DS on March 13, will also be playable and featured in stage presentations at the Nintendo booth. PAX East, which runs March 6-8, takes place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center at 415 Summer St.

“We love giving our fans an opportunity to check out our latest products at PAX events,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The newly released New Nintendo 3DS XL is sure to be popular with the many show-goers looking for StreetPass tags, and Splatoonwill let attendees get their first hands-on experience with one of the year’s most creative games.”

Upcoming or newly released Nintendo 3DS games scheduled to be playable on New Nintendo 3DS XL hardware at the Nintendo booth include Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and the New Nintendo 3DS XL exclusive, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D. Nintendo also invites attendees to bring their trained-up amiibo figures to the show to take on other players’ amiibo in the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS game. Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition for Nintendo 3DS is scheduled to make an appearance at the Nintendo booth as well. The developer, GungHo Online Entertainment, will also have its own booth at PAX (#8092), where attendees can try Puzzle & Dragons Z and Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition for Nintendo 3DS.

  1. Good! I went for the first time last year and it was the first time Nintendo didn’t show up. I’ll definitely make it over this time!

  2. This is the part when I pack my amiibo, take a couple of dollars, leave my house, ride a bus to Boston and live off with Doritos and mt dew until it opens. And see heaven for the first time and die from too much happiness…

    1. The more I see of Code Name Steam, the less I want to play it. The levels look too restrictive and the enemies are very generic looking. Maybe if the stages had bigger open areas that gave you room to create your own paths. But instead they look lime hallways leading you to the finish line. And I’m not a fan of the characters.
