The full Nintendo line up for PAX Australia

by Luke HendersonOctober 9, 2019

A week back, Nintendo Australia teased some of the games that attendees would be at to play at their booth at PAX Australia, well now we have the full line up.

In addition to The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (already out, check out our review), Luigi’s Mansion 3 and both Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, those who stop by the booth will get to play the following:

  • Overwatch Legendary Edition
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Complete Edition
  • Hollow Knight: Silksong
  • Resident Evil 5
  • Disney Tsum Tsum Festival
  • Super Monkey Ball Banana Blitz HD

If that was not enough for you, there will also be the chance to go hands on with Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, as it will be one of the games being showcased on their stage. Other titles that will be included there will be Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Super Mario Maker 2.

For those who are MyNintendo members, and you really should be, checking in will net you some sweet rewards. The collectable lapel pins will only be available by checking in at the booth and are limited, so stop by early.

On top of those pins, there are other pins to collect, a set of starter Pokemon from the upcoming titles, but those who want the best looking one, Link from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will need to quest for it. You can see all about them on the Nintendo Australia PAX Site.


Update: Nintendo Australia has revealed all the details on how to get the loot mentioned above, and a few more goodies not previously mentioned.

The My Nintendo pin set (the ones that look like coins above) is probably the easiest of the lot, all you have to do is check-in at the Nintendo booth using your My Nintendo QR code on your mobile phone or Switch, and they’re yours!

The Pokémon pins are pretty easy too, you’ll need to vote in a Partner Pokémon poll, and then play the Pokémon Sword and Shield Demo on the show floor to get yourself one of the three pins.

These super cool Luigi/Gooigi hats, and a collection of cards detailing the creation of Gooigi, will be available just for visiting the Nintendo booth.

And these wonderful, retro-styled NES and SNES Online posters can be earned by playing a few SNES games at the Nintendo booth.

The final piece of loot is the gorgeous Link’s Awakening pin shown off above, and to earn that you’ll have to embark on a lengthy quest across the whole of PAX, taking pictures of magical instruments scattered throughout the show. It’s quite a journey, but the prize is worth it.

All the details are available on Nintendo Australia’s website.

So, I have been gaming since controllers only had two buttons and because I wanted to, I started my own site. Now of course, you can find me writing for Vooks as well

    Those are some nice goodies! Not really worth going all the way to Melbourne for (I’m in Sydney) but I’d definitely be inclined to collect them all if I happened to be there.

    At Oz ComicCon last year, there was a Nintendo booth and they allowed people to play the E3 demo (which I refrained from as so few characters were available), but I did try a bit of Super Mario Party (where I had found the HD rumble to be quite impressively implemented) and Diablo 3. It was really well presented and they even had a whole table dedicated to Fortnite. 😛

    The fact that I received so few StreetPass hits during the two comic conventions that I had been to last year (to help an author I know sell some comics) was proof enough that the 3DS was sadly dead at that point.
