PAX West 2019: Nintendo’s PAX West Plans

Coming up next week from August 30th-September 2nd is PAX West 2019 in Seattle, and of course Nintendo will be bringing plenty of gaming content for attendees to get their hands on.

Nintendo will have a wide selection of titles at its booth on the show floor, but there will also be many indie selections available all throughout the convention space. If you swing by the Nintendo booth, here’s what you’ll be able to take a look at and hopefully play:

  • Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening
  • Luigi’s Mansion 3
  • Minecraft Dungeons
  • Pokemon Sword & Shield
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition

All three colors of the new Nintendo Switch Lite will also be on display.

Although we do highlight panels daily, it may be worth taking special note of this particular Dragon Quest panel in advance (which will also stream on Twitch if you can’t get into the show):

“On Saturday, Aug. 31, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. PT in the Raven Theatre at the Hyatt Regency (located near the Washington State Convention Center at 808 Howell St.), the developers of DRAGON QUEST XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition from SQUARE ENIX will host a panel called DRAGON QUEST® Then & Now – Echoes Through the Ages. The panel will give a behind-the-scenes look at how developers from SQUARE ENIX, both established and newer, maintain series roots while catering to present-day RPG enthusiasts in creating modern-day classics like DRAGON QUEST XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch. The panel will be livestreamed on Twitch at starting at 10:30 a.m. PT. There will also be a first-come, first-served opportunity later in the day for guests to meet the developers and have a custom art card, favorite Slime toy or other memorabilia signed.”

A special scavenger hunt will be held to earn a unique pin related to the Zelda series:

“Gamers interested in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will be able to take part in an on-site scavenger hunt based on the upcoming game. More details will be revealed on the Nintendo of America Twitter accountduring PAX West, so participants need to make sure they follow along to receive further instruction. Finishing the scavenger hunt (and completing all of its challenges) will earn participants a one-of-a-kind pin collection inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, while supplies last.”

You’ll also be able to experience a “tourism booth” for the Galar region of Pokemon fame:

“Leading up to the launch of the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games on Nov. 15, a Galar region tourism center will be popping up at locations across the country, including its kick off at PAX West. The “Galar Visitors Center” will be located at Booth No. 1921, adjacent to the main Nintendo booth in the Washington State Convention Center, from Aug. 30 to Sept. 2. At the center, fans can learn about the Galar region, take their Galar region passport photo and receive one-of-a-kind items, like Galar travel brochures and postcards, while supplies last.”

And finally, you’ll also get the opportunity to earn a special collectible Luigi’s Mansion 3 pin if you check into the Nintendo booth with a MyNintendo QR code. All the info will be on the MyNintendo website, so check it out before you go!

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
