Nintendo Switch Will Be At Pax South
Hit the Switch in San Antonio during Pax South
The Switch launches in March but if you need to play it earlier, the newest Nintendo system will be playable at Pax South. Check out the Alamo, the San Antonio River walk and then hit the Nintendo booth to see everything Switch related. All you need to check out the Nintendo booth is a Pax South badge and frankly, if you don’t have one of those; you’re not making it too far inside the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
It already looks like Nintendo is trying harder with the Switch than they did with the Wii U. It doesn’t hurt that the Switch has the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as a launch title. There will be plenty of Switch games at Pax South for the crowd to see. You’ll be able to play Breath of the Wild, 1-2- Switch, Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Bomberman R, Snipperclips: Cut it Out, Together! And Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers during the convention. Nintendo fans will want to check out the likes of Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers won’t be released for a couple of months after the Switch’s launch in March.
The demo areas will take place in “interesting” areas to show off the flexibility of the Switch. For example, you might be playing demo games inside of an airplane to show off how easy it is to take the Switch anywhere you want to go. The main Nintendo stage will be where you can see live gameplay, contests, and videos so make sure to stake out a good sitting spot! Nintendo could use Pax South as market research for the Switch since it’s one of the earliest chances fans can playtest the system. What I mean by market research is allowing real fans/people to play the Switch should be a good idea of just how good the Switch is. The fans won’t mince words when talking about the Switch
“We absolutely love bringing our games and systems directly to the fans, and PAX South is a great venue to do just that,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “PAX South will be one of the first opportunities for fans to try out Nintendo Switch before it launches on March 3.”
