Nintendo Heads to PAX East with New Games and to Crown the Nintendo Switch Tournament Champions

Nintendo is headed to PAX East in Boston this year from March 28 to March 31 with a large assortment of games, events and activities for fans, headlined by the finals of the Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 and the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019.

 

The final events for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019 and Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 both take place on March 30 at the PAX Arena.

In addition to fun playable games, Nintendo’s booth will also feature a memorable photo opportunity inspired by Yoshi’s Crafted World and mini-challenge competitions in the Yoshi’s Crafted World and Super Smash Bros.
