Nintendo Goes Big at PAX East

Buy games a day early, try some upcoming titles

PAX East kicks off in Boston this weekend — 22nd-24th March — bringing enthusiasts together in one glorious setting. Nintendo is going to be there in force this year, running a major booth and offering a variety of incentives, activities and hands-on opportunities for lucky attendees.

For one thing, those going along on Saturday will have an opportunity to buy Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity a day before the games arrive in stores nationwide, and therefore show-off to non-attending friends. There'll be a Pokémon Gaming Lounge for 'mon fans to meet, a mug-shot photo booth to celebrate LEGO City Undercover, and a range of 3DS systems and goodies on sale.

Naturally there'll also be a significant variety of games available to play, listed below.
