Visitors to Hyper Japan Festival 2017 will be among the first in the UK to try out Pokkén Tournament DX when they go hands-on with the upcoming Nintendo Switch fighting game. Attendees at the show will also be able to play other upcoming Nintendo Switch titles including Super Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Splatoon 2, as well as Nintendo 3DS titles Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions, Monster Hunter Stories and Miitopia.
These games will be complemented by on-stage multiplayer battles in many other Nintendo Switch titles including Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, 1-2-Switch, Puyo Puyo Tetris and ULTRA STREET FIGHTER II: The Final Challengers. There will be some lovely prizes up for grabs, so we recommend you get practising!
What’s more, on Saturday 15th July we will be celebrating the imminent release of Splatoon 2 on 21st July with a number of unique Splatoon activities at Hyper Japan, including fishing out prizes for Splatoon cosplayers and hosting some competitive Splatoon 2 tournaments for teams that sign-up on the day (these activities will be running during both Saturday sessions).
For those that can’t make it to Hyper Japan but would like to contribute to our Splaturday shenanigans, we will be announcing a Splatoon 2 fan-art competition very soon, and the freshest sketches will be displayed at Hyper Japan for attendees to admire!
Hyper Japan Festival 2017 will run from 14th-16th July 2017, and you can buy tickets here.
