Nintendo to Have Playable Demos at SDCC

Nintendo to Have Playable Demos at SDCC


The annual San Diego Comic-Con is one of the largest gatherings in the world for comics and other nerdy goodies. This year, Nintendo will be making itself known at SDCC with playable demos of many of the upcoming games for Wii U and 3DS. For a lot of the public, this is their first chance to play these games and see for themselves if a Wii U is something they might be interested in. At SDCC, Nintendo will be present at two different locations. The first will be of course on the show floor at the San Diego Convention Center, where the focus will be primarily on Pikmin 3, the largest first-party exclusive coming this summer.

Don’t fret, as that is definitely not the only game that will be playable. Nintendo will also have a special gaming lounge in the nearby San Diego Marriot Marquis & Marina hotel, where the majority of the games will be available to try out.
