We got to check out all of Nintendo’s upcoming titles, plus a few from their current library. The lounge was set up so both 3DS and WiiU titles were given room to shine. The room even welcomed bringing in your own 3DS to charge and play with others.

You looking forward to Nintendo’s upcoming line-up?

A Look Into Super Smash Bros. 4 at Comic-Con

smash bros banner

Another year, another mob of people clogging the streets of downtown San Diego as they attend Comic-con 2014, one of the biggest video game, comic book, and pop-culture events in the world. The main floor is always jam packed with booths and attractions. People all over hawk their wares; artists sell their great works, and game and movie developers premier their trailers for the next great blockbuster. Of the many game demos available at Comic-con, I was most attracted to the new Super Smash Bros. game that was playable on the 3DS at the Capcom booth and on the Wii U as well at the Nintendo lounge in the Marriott hotel. What I soon discovered was the chance the Smash Bros. team was giving to win a T-shirt. All you had to do was beat a single-player mode then win in a 4-player free-for-all match. The event went on every day with the only restriction that the event withdrew from the convention floor to the Nintendo lounge on Sunday. I was unable to win a shirt, but it was a rather fun way of getting a first look at the new game.
