Earls Cours

Nintendo has a rammed event schedule for us this year at EGX London 2014. Many of you will already know that we'll be in charge of the Mario Kart 8 tournament at the show, but Nintendo has much more in mind than that.

No-one will be surprised to hear that Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS will be available to play, but you'll also be able to try out Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Ultimate NES Remix on the 3DS side of things. For those of you who are more Wii U-minded, you'll be able to play the highly anticipated Splatoon, Yoshi's Woolly World, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Hyrule Warriors, through probably not simultaneously.

If you fancy your hand at showing your moves, you can enter a competition on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and if you're good enough to make it through the heat you'll have the chance to play the Wii U version live in front of a cheering crowd. If you can prove that you've already played too much of the demo and best your opponents, you could be one of 34 lucky winners who walks away with a limited edition Super Smash Bros. 3DS, complete with a copy of the game pre-installed so you can start smashing ahead of everyone else and become the envy of all your peers. 34 lucky runners-up will not walk away without a PAC-MAN plush toy and a Super Smash Bros. keyring.

The Official Nintendo UK Store will also be making an appearance, and should you be tempted to play one 3DS game and one Wii U game that they have on offer you'll be able to get 15% off any software purchase that day.

You can also expect to be a part of National StreetPass Weekend on the 27th & 28th September, where you can exchange data, play multiplayer with like-minded individuals, and even win some prizes, including eShop credit. This isn't just exclusive to EGX, so click here to find a local event near you on the 27th & 28th September.

EGX London 2014 will take place from Thursday 25th and continue until Sunday 28th September in Earls Court, London.
