PAX Prime is taking place in Seattle this week, one of the most popular expos held annually in the US - it's already sold out. As always Nintendo of America is planning to have a significant presence, in the process aiming to win over some gamers to the Wii U and 3DS cause.

A notable event this year is a Xenoblade Chronicles X panel, which will feature members of the Treehouse localisation team. Taking place on 29th August at 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. Pacific in the Wyvern Theater, attendees will be able to check out concept art, "new game play" and pose some questions in a Q & A.

Sadly, Xenoblade Chronicles X won't be playable on the show floor, which is disappointing in light of its recent appearance at Gamescom in Germany. The following retail games will be playable, though.

As always, there'll also be contests and events for attendees to compete in, using the following games.

Pleasingly Nintendo is also planning plenty of eShop 'Nindie' support. There'll be a Nindies Lounge in the Sheraton Seattle hotel opposite the main venue, with 13 games (and their developers) available to try out and talk to. Pleasingly there are a few games that will serve as a first look for many.

Quite a lot going on at PAX Prime this year, then. We'll be soaking it in as always - are you a lucky ticket holder?
