Some of the top Nintendo video games launching this year, including Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, will be playable at the PAX Prime convention. Nintendo will also host a number of fun events and lots of hands-on game-play opportunities for fans to experience the latest and greatest Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games before they launch. PAX Prime takes place Aug. 29-Sept. 1 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle.

Here is what Nintendo has on tap:
- Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS #SmashBash: To amp up the excitement for the first appearance of Nintendo’s coolest fighting game on a portable system, Nintendo will be bringing Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS to locations around Seattle on Friday and Saturday of the show to give people in the city a chance to play as well. Follow Nintendo’s social media channels to learn where these #SmashBash events will take place.
- Hyrule Warriors Event: After PAX Prime shuts down at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 30, people eager to check out the upcoming Hyrule Warriors game for Wii U can visit the Renaissance Seattle Hotel at 515 Madison St. from 7 to 10 p.m. This event will be open to the public, and a PAX badge is not required for entry. Attendees will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis, as space allows. Cosplaying fans dressed as characters from The Legend of Zelda series will be able to fast-track into the event ahead of the general public. Anyone dressed in The Legend of Zelda gear or wearing a Hyrule Warriors T-shirt (available at the event while supplies last) can enter a drawing for a chance to win some cool original Hyrule Warriors concept artwork. Fans can enter by taking a picture against a special backdrop and tweeting the image with specific hashtags. The winner will be chosen at random toward the end of the event, and the winner must be present to claim the prize.
- During the show, Nintendo will have a variety of other fun activities and offerings at its booth, including a dedicated Pokémon area where fans can meet up with fellow Pokémon Trainers to battle and trade. Games scheduled to appear at the Nintendo booth at the show include:
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (SEGA)
Stealth Inc. 2 (Curve Digital)
Swords & Soldiers II (Ronimo Games)
