He loves the camera, this one

EGX 2016 takes place between the 22nd and 25th of September at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, and if you're attending then you'll be pleased to know that your retail needs during those four days will be fulfilled by online giant Amazon - so bring plenty of pennies, basically.

Thanks to the new deal, attendees "will have the opportunity to pre-order games and hardware courtesy of Amazon" and the retailer is also "working with publishers to come up with one or two surprises for the show". There's even a EGX 2016 hub on Amazon's site.

Those of you who attended last year's event will no doubt recall that Nintendo Life was heavily involved with Nintendo UK's gigantic stand - you can check out pictorial highlights here or sample some moving images below, if that's more your thing.
