Travis Strikes Again, Dead Cells Spotted On Nintendo's PAX East 2018 Schedule

Nintendo is bringing a lot of excitement to the PAX party.


This time of year is always hectic as we get a rapid-fire of events from CES to SXSW to GDC and, now, PAX East. There are always a few surprises found during the event, but developers and publishers start up the hype train with schedules of the games they’ll be bringing along and Nintendo has revealed their full schedule.

A couple hit franchises, Dark Souls: Remastered and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, are coming to the Switch for the first time, and Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes serves up a cult classic as a platform exclusive. Suda51, the great mind behind Travis Strikes Again, will be at the Shacknews booth at 4:00 PM ET on Saturday during PAX East. 

Not only is Nintendo bringing some popular mainstream heavy hitters, the company is continuing their championing of indie developers with a slew of Nindies at their booth. Dead Cells, a rogue-lite Metroidvania title that’s in early access on PC currently and earned honorable mention honors in our 2017 Best of series, was revealed to be coming to Nintendo Switch back in January and will be playable on the platform for the first time at PAX East 2018.
