Nintendo to Supply Perks for PAX Prime Players
If you are heading to PAX Prime, chances are you are nearly piddling yourself in excitement. Games like RAGE, Retro City Rampage, and many others will be on parade for patrons to play. Sorry, just in quite the mood to rhyme, dude.
While you are drooling over all of the up and coming titles for the fall, don’t forget where the heart is. If you are Kano, it might just be in the palm of your hand. For others out there, gaming might have started on a system that hosted characters such as Link, Kirby, Fox, and of course, Super Mario. If you are attending PAX Prime 2011, Nintendo will be delivering up a heaping helping of titles to come.
Fans will also be pleased to find the third floor of the Nintendo Gaming Lounge appropriately decorated in Kirby attire. Help celebrate the upcoming release of Kirby’s Return to Dreamland releasing September 19th and Kirby’s Mass Attack releasing October 24th by indulging in the festivities. There will also be over-sized Kirby bean bags to relax in. You can bet your sweet pink cotton candy (also available at the lounge) that there will be plenty of swag to take home while supplies last.
If this wasn’t enough to get you PAX Prime’d up and ready to go, then maybe this will. There will also be a Star Fox 64 3D tournament. So, dust off that Rumbe Pak and get the N64 out of the attic, cause it’s time revamp those space skills. The tournament will be held 7-10 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, on the second floor of the North Galleria.
