Midwest Gaming Classic

Nintendo may be passing on PAX East this year, but it'll make an appearance at next month's Midwest Gaming Classic in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Held on the 12th and 13th April, the Midwest Gaming Classic is a retro-centric trade show featuring everything from arcades and pinball machines to tabletop board games. One of its most popular events is the Pokémon Podcast, where attendees can battle, trade, and generally geek out about Pokémon. For the first time, this year Nintendo itself will have a presence at the Pokémon Podcast, bringing along a wide array of new Wii U and 3DS titles for fans to try out.

Fans may hope that the big N will use a fan event like this to make a 'mon-related announcement, but only time will tell. At the very least it should be fun for attendees to try out some Nintendo games; are you in the area and planning to go along?
