There are new Dragon Quest IX maps and a full roster of past and future releases.

Nintendo is bringing eight games to New York Comic Con, which is taking place this weekend (October 8, 9, and 10) at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.

Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Wii Party, and Metroid: Other M headline the Wii side of things, in addition to Activision's GoldenEye, which is the lone non-Nintendo-published title available.

On DS, players will be able to play Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem!, and Dragon Quest IX.

Nintendo will also be bringing the Dragonlord and Mortamor downloadable maps for Dragon Quest IX. The Mortamor map was originally available at San Diego Comic-Con.

Nice... even though I'm unable to go. Is this Golden Sun's first time in public?

Wow, Wii Party and Metroid: Other M.  Nothing cooler than going to Comic Con to play games already in stores!  YEAH!!

The other stuff should be cool and all but it is funny that companies feel the need to include such titles.  You can walk across the store to Target and play the same game on their demo unit.  The target demo for a COMIC CONVENTION is geeks.  If a game is a couple of weeks old, geeks have played it.  They would want to play new stuff and having an extra DKC kiosk would serve the attendees better than one of a game that's been out for over a month.

Dragon Quest IX?  Nintendo, there will be several attendees at the convention that will be playing that exact game on their DS at the con!  Think this through for five minutes.
