Events: Nintendo Life Is Coming to Eurogamer Expo 2012

Posted by Damien McFerran

Win a Wii U, plus much more

You might have noticed that we've been getting increasingly excited about this year's Eurogamer Expo, which is due to start tomorrow in London. The reasons are legion; it's going to be the first public UK showing of Nintendo's Wii U console where you can get your hands on Pikmin 3, ZombiU and New Super Mario Bros U. Outside of the Nintendo booth will also be packed to the rafters with all the latest games from all the biggest developers and publishers for other home consoles and PC.

Win A Wii U

However, the main reason we're so pumped is because we're officially a media partner for the event, and we'll be attending the show in force to meet with members of the public and give away some amazing prizes - the most notable of which is a 8GB Wii U console. For a chance to acquire this stunning item, you simply need to grab one of the flyers we'll be handing out at the Expo itself, scan the QR code with your fancy mobile phone and boom - you're one step closer to (possibly) having a free Wii U come release time. Details will also be available in the official show guide.

Chill Out, with Nintendo Life

That's not all, though. Situated within the Expo's Chill Out and Cosplay area, the 'Nintendo Life Street Pass Zone' will be active throughout all four days, offering 3DS owners the chance to score some mega StreetPass hits, play competitive games and also win some cool prizes.

We've got £100 worth of Nintendo eShop Vouchers to give away, plus a stack of Wii games from the office.

"I just came to say hello"

So there you have it; if you're planning on attending the Expo this year, along with the 50,000 other people who will be making their way to Earl's Court, then be sure to look out for us and say hello. We promise we won't bite.

I'm at E3 every year. I'll likely be attending PAX Prime next year too. Maybe GDC. We'll see how lazy I'm being at that time. LOL

I think giving away the 8gig is cool I wish I was there to try and win it for my nephew.

I already preorder my deluxe model but the 8gig would be perfect for my nephew he is a young Nintendo gamer and he loves Mario.




Will be interested to see if they improve Sonic and SEGA ASRT from the last demo the NL crew played which was a bit poor. Hopefully it'll be sorted for release.

Oh what? Darn, I was hoping go win a free Wii U, but the Euro thing is probaly somewhere in Chicago or Los Angelos, my family can't afford that. I hope you guys win.

It was an epic expo! Shame I didn't get a chance to meet the Nintendolife crew which was a shame, but 'd like to thank them for the Nintendo Life Street Pass Zone. It was a great way of getting hits on the 3DS while chatting and chilling with other gamers. It be great to see you guys at other events throughout the UK. Hopefully we can meet then as well. Well done guys.
I recommend everyone to pop down this weekend to the Eurogamer Expo. The Nintendo Booth seemed to be packed all day and had many demos on offer for both the Wii U and 3DS. Don't forget to enter the competition!

I love the ridiculous gap between London expos and Everywhere Else In The UK expos.
Expos in London: "Win a Wii U and lots of money coupons!"
Expos in the North: "...Win some Kid Icarus trading cards, and some 10-year-old irrelevant PC games we picked up from WH Smiths at 3 for £10 on the way here."

Wish I could be there, but alas, I live in the USA. Specifically, Florida, where there are no good gaming conventions



GazPlant said:

@Raylax Kid Icarus cards you say... I'll take them

@Cerberus_Azdin We were all definitely around that area at times! That or in the Wii U booth (I spent most of the day in there haha). Just bad timing I guess
