Nintendo will attend PAX East in Boston this year, March 28–31, with an assortment of games, events and activities for fans, headlined by the finals of the Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 and the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019.
The final events take place on March 30 at the PAX Arena. Fans with a PAX East Saturday badge are free to attend on a first-come, first-served basis. Both tournaments have hosted online qualifiers over the past months, leading up to these showdowns that promise to offer a showcase of smashes and splats. The tournaments will also be live-streamed.
Nintendo’s booths will offer attendees hands-on time with the latest upcoming Nintendo Switch games releases, including Yoshi’s Crafted World, which launches on March 29 during PAX East weekend; Dragon Quest Builders 2 from Square Enix; Mortal Kombat 11 from Warner Bros. Interactive; and Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night from 505 Games, as well as a variety of anticipated indie games including Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice from Ninja Theory and Assassin’s Creed III Remastered from Ubisoft.
The booth will also feature a photo op inspired by Yoshi’s Crafted World and mini-challenge competitions in the Yoshi’s Crafted World and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate games for the Nintendo Switch system. Fans that participate in these challenges can receive some fun branded prizes, while supplies last.
