Not a really surprising lineup and i won't go there. But it's nice to see Rhythm Heaven and Project Zero getting some love. Can't wait for these.

I`m going on saturday, i`ll be wearing a goomba cap. pink/red t-shirt, and blue jeans, if you see me say, i`ll be happy to say hi or stop and chat.
don`t forget to take your 3DS to the event, you may see me pop up in your street plaza. also, i have finished all of the puzzle panels with exeption to the mario tennis one, which i hope to finish on saturday.
anybody struggling with the pink pieces will pretty much have good day picking them up, just remember to keep checking your 3ds regularly through out the day.
also, i`m taking a friend with me, he`ll be dressed as mario, so we`ll be easy enough to spot.

Damn it, I was wanting to go this year, but I'm kinda broke. (The £16 ticket I can afford. The £78 train ticket to London I can't.)

I so, so hope Luigi's Mansion 2/Paper Mario aren't cancelled or in some kind of development hell. Every time I see one of these events pop up I get excited that I might get to see new information, screenshots, or video from these games but it just doesn't happen.

@stocko What kind of tornament? Naruto TCG? Good luck all the same!
If I suddenly start going to London for the weekend, and you see me at MCM Expo, don't bother playing Beat The Beat. I'll be gluing myself the the controller literally so that I can never stop playing
