CONSUMERS TO GET AN EARLY LOOK AT NINTENDO 3DS AT PAX EAST|
Visitors to this year's PAX East event will get more than just a glimpse into Nintendo's all-star lineup of console and hand-held video games. Running March 11-13 in Boston, the festival also marks an opportunity for U.S. consumers to experience the new Nintendo 3DS™ portable system in advance of its March 27 launch. Featuring 3D visuals that don't require special glasses, built-in applications and software, and distinctive wireless features like StreetPass™ and SpotPass™, Nintendo 3DS offers veteran and first-time gamers a remarkable new way to play.
In addition to the fun of included Nintendo 3DS software such as Mii Maker™ and AR Games™, PAX East attendees can get a firsthand look at upcoming first- and third-party games for the system. Interactive demo stations will give players a chance to try Nintendo's Steel Diver™, Kid Icarus™: Uprising, Pilotwings Resort™, nintendogs™ + cats and The Legend of Zelda™: Ocarina of Time™ 3D. They can also check out LucasArts' LEGO® Star Wars® III: The Clone Wars™, TECMO KOEI's DEAD OR ALIVE® Dimensions, and CAPCOM's Super Street Fighter® IV 3D Edition and Resident Evil®: The Mercenaries 3D.
Nintendo's PAX East booth (#412) will also give fans a chance to experience the latest installments in two of the world's favorite game franchises. The new Pokémon™ Black Version and Pokémon White Version games for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems offer new battle modes, a new region to explore and more than 150 new Pokémon to catch, battle and trade. Meanwhile, Mario™ Sports Mix for the Wii™ system injects four different sports – volleyball, basketball, dodgeball and hockey – with a dose of Mushroom Kingdom fun, adding wild power-ups and letting players put their customized Mii characters at the center of the action.
Remember that Wii and Nintendo 3DS feature parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about Nintendo, visit http://www.nintendo.com.
