In their Twitter post, Nintendo mentioned that they’ll be at PAX East 2019 from March 28th to March 31st. Video games and tournaments aside, the Nintendo of America Twitter account also announced that the Nintendo PAX East 2019 booth will have an assortment of activities set-up for fans to participate in.
According to MyNintendoNews.com, the events, games, and activities will be headlined by the “Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 and the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019 [tournaments].”
Speaking of those tournaments, MyNintendoNews.com reports that “the final events for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019 and Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 both take place on March 30 at the PAX Arena.” If you’re going to PAX East and have the ‘Saturday badge,’ MyNintendoNews.com reports that you’ll be able to witness these tournaments take place “on a first-come, first-served basis.”
MyNintendoNews.com wrote that Nintendo has been streaming both tournaments online for quite awhile now because they’ve been building up the tournament finals for each competition–that’ll take place at PAX East in a few weeks. For those who can’t make it to PAX East this year, fear not, as MyNintendoNews.com reports that these “tournaments will also be streamed at https://events.nintendo.com/,” which means you’ll be able to watch them from the comfort of your own home.
The website also quoted a comment made by Nintendo of America’s future president, Doug Bowser, who stated the following:
“PAX East will be really exciting this year. Not only will we have new games for fans to try, but it will also be the culmination of our Nintendo Switch tournaments across North America,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “From the thousands of competitors who began the journey, our finalists rose to the top and are ready to put the skills to the test for everyone in person and watching online.”
According to MyNintendoNews.com, some of the activities Nintendo has planned for their fans and other PAX East attendees are “a memorable photo opportunity inspired by Yoshi’s Crafted World and mini-challenge competitions in the Yoshi’s Crafted World and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate games.”
Similar to other events Nintendo often has, participants can receive “fun branded prizes.” However, Nintendo may run out of prizes due to amount of people who may jump on-board with the activities their holding. Here’s a list of the Nintendo Switch titles that’ll appear at the following booths–according to MyNintendoNews.com.
- “Yoshi’s Crafted World[.]”
