PAX, or the Penny Arcade Expo West, is a chance for developers to show off their upcoming wares to the media and fans, alike. There’s arguably no bigger destination booth to hit up than Nintendo’s, and thankfully the Japanese developer has revealed its lineup of software for the show:

  • Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  • Pokemon Let’s Go, Eevee! and Let’s Go, Pikachu!
  • Diablo III: Eternal Collection
  • Super Mario Party
  • Starlink: Battle for Atlas
  • Dragonball FighterZ
  • Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes

PAX West takes place from August 31 to September 3 in Seattle, Washington right downtown at the Washington State Convention Center. Nintendo Senior Vice President of Sales Doug Bowser has noted that fans in attendance can also look forward to “fun activities,” along with “engaging hands-on demos.” From August 31 to September 1 Nintendo will be hosting a “Trainer Battle” where fans can participate in a Pokémon-themed scavenger hunt that will send participants searching around both the convention center and “nearby Seattle areas.”


The official Nintendo of America Twitter account will be Tweeting out clues about where to head next for the duration of the hunt. Once fans arrive at a location, they must spot the Nintendo Street Team members who will be dressed as “Pokémon Trainers” and engage them in “battle.” The battles consist of answering a trivia question in order to receive a special item. There are also Pikachu and Eevee costume characters to look forward to!

Beyond that, fans can also take in an enormous banner mural of the entire roster (so far) of revealed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighters. Cosplayers dressed as characters from the game are encouraged to seek out their respective fighter on the banner and snap pictures with them. It’s a ton of stuff to do and see, folks— if you happen to have the opportunity to hit up PAX West, we highly recommend it!
