Nintendo’s Show Activities

REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nintendo is headed to WonderCon
in Los Angeles March 25-27 with a great collection of Wii
U
and Nintendo
3DS
games, including the first publicly playable version of Metroid
Prime: Federation Force
for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.
Additionally, there will also be a panel and meet-and-greet dedicated to Hyrule
Warriors Legends
featuring developers from the game, as well as
other fun activities at Nintendo’s booth in the Los Angeles Convention
Center.


“WonderCon is a great place to interact with our fans and let them play
some of our most anticipated games of the first half of 2016,” said
Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales &
Marketing. “Fans will get to experience Star Fox Zero, Star Fox Guard and
Metroid Prime: Federation Force at the show.”

Show attendees will be able to play Star
Fox Zero
and Star
Fox Guard
before the Wii U games launch on April 21. Star Fox
Zero
is a flying and shooting game starring legendary space pilot
Fox McCloud. Players will blast through an onslaught of enemy forces to
bring peace to the galaxy. In this white-knuckle space shooter, it’ll
take more than luck to master the Arwing jet, the Gyrowing flight drone
and the Landmaster tank. Additionally, attendees can experience Metroid
Prime: Federation Force,
a game that focuses on co-op multiplayer
missions. Up to four players, each with her or his own Nintendo 3DS
system, take on various missions within the Bermuda system, battling
intergalactic creatures and solving puzzles. This will be the first time
the public will have hands-on time with the Nintendo 3DS game before it
launches this spring.

The following games will be playable on the show floor:

Wii U

Nintendo 3DS

  • Hyrule Warriors Legends

On Saturday, March 26, in room 515A in the Los Angeles Convention
Center, Nintendo will host a panel from 6 to 7 p.m. featuring team
members from Koei Tecmo, the developers of the Hyrule Warriors Legends
game for Nintendo 3DS. The developers will discuss creating the game,
which brings all the action of the hit Wii U game to Nintendo 3DS, and
they will also dive into some of the new characters like Linkle. The
panel is sure to be informative and interesting for not only fans of the
game, but also anyone who has interest in game development.

On Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the developers from Koei Tecmo will
participate in a meet-and-greet in the Nintendo booth. This is a great
opportunity for fans to ask them questions about their work on the game,
take a memorable photo or even bring their Hyrule Warriors Legends
game to be signed by the awesome people who made it!
