Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the marquee game and one of the most anticipated games of the year. A giant mural at the Nintendo Booth will feature all the announced fighters, and Nintendo is encouraging fans and cosplayers to take pictures in front of it.
On Friday (Aug. 31), fans will get a chance to meet Kit and Krysta from the Nintendo Minute online show. During the event, fans will get to play Super Mario Party with the hosts and be part of an upcoming episode for the first 30 attendees. Details about the time and location of the event will be announced this week.
On Friday and Saturday (Sep. 1), Nintendo is hosting a Trainer Battle scavenger hunt around the convention and surrounding Seattle area. The Nintendo twitter account will tweet clues and photos of locations. There you will find two Nintendo street team members dressed as Pokémon Trainers. You’ll be able to “battle” them by answering a trivia question and receive a special item.
Also on Saturday, the Pkachu and Eevee official costumed characters will make an appearance at the Sheraton Seattle hotel.
Ahead of the convention, Nintendo will release a new Nindies Showcase tomorrow, Aug. 28, that will announce multiple new indie games coming to Switch.
