We have interesting news related to Nintendo. Apparently, the company has shared more details related to a prominent video game event: the PAX East 2023.
This event takes place between March 23 and 26 of this year and we already knew that The Pokémon Company will attend as well as other companies such as Yacht Club Games, THQ Nordic, Devolver Digital or Inti Creates. These companies are expected to “unveil some of their most anticipated upcoming releases.” Additionally, companies Chucklefish, Ysbryd Games, XSEED Games, and Plaion will be in a showroom with demos, physical products, and more. Finally, Finji, Raw Fury, Brace Yourselves Games and PM Studios are the indie developers present at the event.
Nintendo also confirmed and later shared that it will not carry Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Subsequently, the Big N shared their plans for the event and now we have information about the prizes that fans will be able to receive in person and from home.
They are the following:
In the main entrance lobby, My Nintendo users can receive a The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom lapel pin and 50 My Nintendo Platinum Points.By playing Mario Party Superstars, Mario Golf: Super Rush, Super Mario Bros. and Yoshi’s Crafted World with other attendees, you will be able to receive a pin at each station. Upon exiting, those registered with My Nintendo can also receive a tote bag and 50 My Nintendo Platinum Points. Top players in the Splatoon 3 Splatsville Showdown tournament will receive prizes including Splatoon 3-themed controllers and trophies. Those who attend the live event can sign up for My Nintendo to receive a set of Splatoon pins.
