Nintendo Confirms Lineup and Big Plans for New York Comic Con
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Eiji Aonuma to host a special developer presentation
The New York Comic Con event hits the Javit Centre in the city from 10th-13th October, and Nintendo of America has confirmed that, like at previous events such as PAX Prime, it'll be going all out to impress attendees. A standout event will be a special developer presentation by The Legend of Zelda series produce Eiji Aonuma — that's on 11th October in room 1A06 at 2:45 p.m. ET, with a first-come first-served basis.
Aside from that event, Nintendo will have special events on Kid's Day (Sunday 13th October), with game tournaments, artist demonstrations and giveaways. In the now-standard off-the-wall Ninty event, there'll also be a sandcastle artist sculpting a recreation of Windfall Island from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD at the Javits Inner Roadway, directly in front of the Javits Convention Center — it'll be on display over the weekend days. The Nintendo World store will also have a presence, and from 12th October will be selling, among other things, Pokémon X & Y and 2DS hardware.
