The MCM London Comic Con takes place between the 25th and 27th May at the Excel in England's capital, and as ever, there were be plenty of video game-related points of interest among the TV stars, merchandise and cosplay.

Confirmed stars include David Harewood (Supergirl), Rosario Dawson (Marvel Cinematic Universe), John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time), Caroline Blakiston (Star Wars), Anthony Daniels (Star Wars) and many more besides.

Nintendo is making a big splash at this year's event, and our very own YouTube host Alex Olney will be in attendance on the Saturday. Nintendo will be running a livestream during the event, with a number of headline tournaments taking place during the three days.

On Friday it's ARMS and Pokkén Tournament DX, Saturday will be Splatoon 2 and Sunday will showcase Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Rocket League. In addition to these games, Mario Tennis Aces will be getting a push on each day. If you'd like to sign up to take part in these events, head here.

While he's not on stage providing questionable commentary, Alex will be milling about the Excel on the Saturday and is more than happy to take some photos with all you lovely people. If you happen to see him aimlessly wandering around the Excel, please approach with caution as it may have been some time since his last meal and his bite is quite nasty. 

If you do get close enough to take a photo and still have enough fingers intact to operate your smartphone, post your selfie on Twitter with the hashtags #HelloThereLovelyPhoto and #MCMcomiccon, and be sure to tag both Nintendo Life and Alex - we'll be sure to share the least harrowing examples with our Twitter followers.
