Last September Nintendo decided to skip out on attending EGX, one of the United Kingdom’s biggest gaming expos, presumably due to a lack of games to show. Thankfully, with the Switch’s ever growing library and a steady flow of 3DS titles, the Japanese giant will be returning to the Birmingham NEC once more from September 21 – 24.

The news comes via Nintendo UK’s official blog, where it reveals that attendees will be able to go hands on with Super Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Metroid: Samus Returns, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions and Monster Hunter Stories. Fire Emblem Warriors will also make its UK playable debut on the show floor.

Several Switch tournaments will also be taking place over the course of the expo, for ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2 and Pokkén Tournament DX.

Tickets for EGX are still on sale via the official site, but be warned – if it’s anything like E3, the Super Mario Odyssey booth will have a constant queue to contend with.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
