This weekend is going to be very exciting for Nintendo fans who can make it to Seattle, with PAX Prime being held in the city’s Washington State Convention Center between the 28th and 31st of August.

Considering the event is practically on Nintendo of America’s doorstep, plenty of games will be playable on the show floor. These include Star Fox Zero, Super Mario Maker, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, Splatoon and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Nintendo Treehouse will also be in attendance for a special Xenoblade Chronicles X panel on August 29th between 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Wyvern Theater. It’ll be a behind the scenes look at the title, featuring concept art, gameplay demos, developer insight, and an audience Q&A session.

Fans of amiibo won’t be disappointed either, with the opportunity to check out a variety of the new and upcoming figures in person, including the Donkey Kong and Bowser Skylanders crossover figures.

Finally, PAX has always been a great venue for indie game exposure, so Nintendo isn’t going to pass up the opportunity to advertise their array of “Nindies.” Not only will they have a presence in the nearby Sheraton Seattle Hotel during the show, but fans who arrive a day early on the 27th will be able to visit the 8:00 p.m. “Nindies@Night” event at the EMP Museum, which promises announcements, giveaways and demos.

Do you have any plans to go to PAX Prime this year? Let us know in the comments below!
