Hyper Japan Festival June 27 Feature

Nintendo at Hyper Japan Festival 2015

Nintendo will be attending Hyper Japan Festival 2015, taking place between July 10 and July 12 at the O2 in London, and will display several of its titles over there, including Splatoon, Super Mario Maker, Star Fox Zero, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, among others.

Here’s the official activity plan:

Visitors to the Nintendo stand will also be able to delve into a special 30th Anniversary section dedicated entirely to Super Mario, and a special themed area that will showcase some of Nintendo’s most iconic games.

Activities on offer include the Super Mario Maker Quickfire challenge, which will allow selected guests to take to the stage and try their hand at the exciting level challenges from Super Mario Maker! For Splatoon fans, Nintendo will provide the opportunity to become immersed in the Inklings’ colourful Turf Wars, whilst a ‘How to Hunt’ masterclass for Capcom®’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on Nintendo 3DS will be showcased on the big screen.

Additionally, the Super Smash Bros. Cosplay Competition will see Super Smash Bros. players dressing up as chosen characters in a bid to be awarded Best Costume. Nintendo will also hold amiibo team-up tournaments throughout the show that will see players fighting for glory against other trained, level 50 amiibo players and amiibo teams.

At HYPER JAPAN Nintendo will also be offering an exclusive range of merchandise normally only available on the Nintendo Official UK Store.

Attendees bringing along their Nintendo 3DS or 2DS systems can also play games with other users, increase StreetPass encounters in StreetPass Mii Plaza and enjoy games such as Puzzle Swap and StreetPass Quest; Tomodachi Life players will also be able to exchange rare items or explorers via StreetPass.
