Nintendo packing big presence at PAX Prime this year

For the past couple of years, Nintendo's presence at PAX Prime events has been meager at best, but it's looking to change that this time around with a large showcase at this year's Seattle-based one.

The company has confirmed a number of titles that will be playable at its booth this year, including Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and several others like Pokemon Art Academy and Azure Striker: Gunvolt for 3DS.

Those who don't want to stop by the booth to play Smash will have a second chance to do so with #SmashBash, a promotion that will tie in with Twitter. Users simply need to watch out for announcements from Nintendo in regards to where the game will be playable around Seattle.

In addition, a special Hyrule Warriors event will be open from 7 to 10 PM on Saturday, August 30th at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel. It's first come first serve, though those that cosplay as Link or other characters from the game will get in a lot quicker. Concept art will also be up for grabs to those wearing a special Hyrule shirt (which they can get at the event while supplies last) and taking a picture against a special backdrop, then posting said picture to Twitter.

PAX Prime will take place from August 29th through September 2nd.
