With one week to go until PAX Australia in Melbourne, all types of gamers will have something to look forward to at the Nintendo stand from Friday to Sunday. For the first time in Australia, players will get to experience Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield ahead of release, alongside Overwatch Legendary Edition and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition on Nintendo Switch.

Here are some of the games playable on the Nintendo stand at PAX Australia 2019:

Alongside this diverse range of games to play on Nintendo Switch, there will be a live stage on the Nintendo stand for visitors to get involved with every day of the show! The stage will feature demonstrations of various games, including a playable demonstration of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, and host fun multiplayer battles to test the spirit of Nintendo fans at the event. Eagle-eyed fans may even be able to grab a photo with Mario and Luigi as they visit the stand throughout the day.

In addition to many playable games, visitors will be able to take memorable snaps with a variety of photo opportunities around the PAX Australia show floor and foyer. These photo opportunities will form part of a quest for an exclusive The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening pin*. Plus, exclusive Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield pins*, Luigi’s Mansion 3 giveaways* and more will be available for the general public at the Nintendo stand. Information about these giveaways can be found at
