Nintendo Announces Lineup For PAX Prime

Nintendo has a great lineup of games, including unreleased titles like Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Maker, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, and a slew of fun activities in store for people attending the PAX Prime video game event in Seattle. Fans can also attend a Xenoblade Chronicles X panel and visit the Nindies showcase to play great indie games, including some that will launch later this year.

PAX Prime takes place in our backyard, so we like to pull out all the stops for fans,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “We have some great unreleased titles for attendees to play including Star Fox Zero, which has been receiving positive accolades, and The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, a unique multiplayer entry in The Legend of Zelda series.”

Games scheduled to be playable on the show floor at the Washington State Convention Center Aug. 28-31 include Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Maker, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, Splatoon (which will include both the recently announced August update and TRANSFORMERS Splatfest content on Aug. 29) and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Attendees can also play Skylanders SuperChargers Racing for Nintendo 3DS (with guest stars Bowser and Donkey Kong) for the first time in public and check out a variety of upcoming amiibo figures.

Fans of the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles X game for the Wii U console will want to sit in on a panel discussion led by representatives from the Nintendo Treehouse. Attendees will get a look at concept art, learn the inspiration behind the game, check out new game play and participate in a fan Q&A session. The panel will take place on Aug. 29 from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. PT in Wyvern Theater.

During the show, there will be several PAX-sponsored tournaments and fan gatherings featuring a variety of Nintendo 3DS games, including Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Attendees who want to participate in the fun should bring their Nintendo 3DS systems with them to the show.

      1. Continuum, Stranga, is an excellent free to play ( no bullshit or microtransactions ) space ship shooter MMO. Its hella addicting to play, there’s several game modes, types, arenas and different ships. You play against real people from all over the world and then destroy them! You would enjoy it.

        Iv been playing this game since 1997. What game have you been playing for 15 + years? :)

        Pretty sure you can find it on Steam as of recently, and its available for download at its site. Youtube action of it, it gets intense.

        Tell em Sheeple sent you lol.

          1. Actually kind of, except the ship that would be the arwing or whatever is way more kickass!

            And the game has a public chat while playing. I highly recommend this game to anyone who owns a computer. The game is rather small and not over fancy, it used to run just fine on dail up.

          2. Uhh hello! I wud like two go two PAX! i dont no if it is worth going. I’m scared. I dont like drivin out side my hometown of Helen GA. if any of mii frends on MyNintendoNews wants to mete up with Mii at PAX let Mii no! i, TheBenSanders, may cunsider going to PAX!

        1. Wow this line up is pure trash..

          The clergy is not pleased and the joy of Iwata’s purge has… Well i’m not guna lie , still has been satisfying as ever. Stranga get ready for the Nigerian meat grinder because i’ve come to shut this mutha down,,,

          1. Do it lil man! Shut this mutha flocking snitch down! Whats the flocking point of such, and snitch you flockers.


                    1. Encyclopedia Dramatica

                      your friend sasori is now acting as a white knight an is attacking 4chan, calling them “losers”. what do you think?

                      1. Nintendo Tetrarch Quadramus-NX

                        >>>He’s hardly my friend, I don’t have friends>>>

                        >>>As long as it’s amusing, let him>>>

                        1. Encyclopedia Dramatica

                          maybe someone should share his videos on /v/
                          I really hope your comrade EstocZero use this oportunitty to mend his past mistakes.
                          the article has posibilities, specially for the comment about MLK and all his damage controlling, as i said, Estoc can use this to mend his mistakes.

                          1. All I saw is that Oddworld is finally playable on the Wii U!! Does anyone know if this is the first playable demo on the Wii U! Been waiting so long…

                            1. Aint that the truth and every time I do accidentally read it as F-Zero. I get a “OH SHIT” moment, only to be like “AHH FUCK!”

                            2. Best ones on this list are Runbow and Shovel Knight DLC :D I mean, I can’t wait for SFZ and SMM but my hype is more toward these fantastic Indies! Plus, I gotta see more of Star Fox Zero (more Platinum influence) before my hype actually goes crazy for that.

                            4. Here’s a radical thought, Nintendo: show one or two games we haven’t heard about at PAX Prime, damn it! This event does not interest me in the slightest since you’ll just show off shit we’ve already seen more than enough videos of.

                            5. Reincarnated Sasori Obinna: The Divine Puppet

                              the church of Sasori is pure filth. Sasori Obinna is a filthy rotten corpse that I don’t understand how it can still speak as I have clearly reincarnated to a more divine illusion . Do not listen to those imposters.
