Nintendo is pulling out all the stops with playable demos, tournaments and more.
Nintendo announced their New York Comic Con 2012 plans, featuring an array of Wii U and 3DS titles, along with other special events. From October 11 through October 14, attendees will have the opportunity to play various game demos, as well as participate in multiple activities and tournaments at the Javits Center.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star fans will be able to collect up to five different stickers based on the game at Nintendo’s main booth (No. 1510). Additionally attendees can be “sticker-bombed,” that is covered in as many Paper Mario: Sticker Star stickers as possible, just outside the main entrance of the Javits Center.
Nintendo also has another booth (No. 2921) just for daily gaming tournaments. Event attendees can compete in both New Super Mario Bros. 2’s Coin Rush mode and Kid Icarus: Uprising free-for-all battles. Prizes include Gold Mario pins and 3DS XL systems for the New Super Mario Bros. 2 tournaments. Those competing in the Kid Icarus: Uprising tournaments can look forward to winning Series 2 AR card packs, Kid Icarus pins, Kid Icarus: Uprising AR Card Core Sets (over 400 cards), and 3DS XL systems.
