Hyper Japan 2014 — the UK's biggest celebration of all things Nippon — kicks off today at Earl's Court in London, and runs until Sunday. Nintendo is one of the headline partners and will be showing off some of its latest games slap-bang in the middle of the show floor, including Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Super Smash Bros. Wii U and Super Smash Bros. 3DS. You'll also be able to pick up Tomodachi Life for half price, exclusively at Hyper Japan.

Our very own Thomas Whitehead and Anthony Dickens will be in attendance for today only, so if you're planning on making the trip down to London today, keep an eye out for them and be sure to say hello.

Our intrepid duo will be posting photos from the event to the Nintendo Life Instagram account, so if you can't make it, keep your eyes on that instead. Nintendo has also created a unique Twitter hash tag if you'd like to follow proceedings via social media — it's #NintendoatHyperJapan.
