Nintendo announces a full slate for PAX East 2018


Nintendo is planning to have a big presence at this year’s PAX East, with lots of games for the public to try—many for the first time ever.

With so many titles still making their way to the Nintendo Switch, both new games and ports, there’s a lot that still needs to be shown off. Luckily, if you’re going to the show you’ll get to try it all out.

Bandai Namco’s Dark Souls: Remastered is one of the games on the docket, in addition to Bethesda’s Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, and Nintendo’s cadre of titles, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, and Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido.

There’s also plenty to play by way of indie titles in the Nindie Arcade, which the Nintendo booth will house this year. “Nindies” of all stripes will be available here, with the indie devs available to chat about the games on hand as well. There are a few competitions set for games like Splatoon 2, Super Mario Odyssey, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze if you’re more interested in testing your ability against other con-goers.

Additional games coming to the show include Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Just Shapes & Beats, Lumines Remastered, and the rest of the games previously showcased during the latest Nindies streaming presentation.

PAX East runs from April 5 to 8 in Boston, MA. If you’re attending, make sure you stop by the Nintendo booth.
