The MCM Comic Con - the UK's biggest popular culture event - has just finished its tenure at Birmingham's NEC, and we were lucky enough to attend. Packed with memorabilia, merchandise, cosplayers and even some famous faces from the world of film and TV, the event was well attended and a lot of fun - even more so thanks to the fact that Nintendo UK was there in force, rocking its own stand, retail store and gaming competitions over the two days.
On Saturday there was Super Smash Bros. Invitational Tournament which saw 32 players compete on the Wii U version of the fighting title. On the Sunday there were more Smash bouts, as well as a special event to see which attendee had the most potent amiibo character. Throughout both days Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate experts were on hand to supply tips and tricks for Capcom's 3DS smash-hit, and the StreetPass area was busy with Nintendo fans looking to collect puzzle pieces and drive up their StreetPass hit total.
The Official Nintendo UK Store was also present, selling hardware, software and associated merchandise. Nintendo's stand was pretty large when compared to others at the show, and the company scored quite a coup by attending - despite the large volume of gamers that walked through the doors of the NEC, Nintendo was only one of the three major players to have a presence.
