The lights are on
In addition to a panel featuring The Wonderful 101 creative
director Hideki Kamiya, Nintendo's presence at PAX Prime 2013 will offer attendees a wide
array of Wii U and 3DS titles to try out.
Nintendo will be hosting a PAX panel entitled "Inside The
Wonderful 101 With Hideki Kamiya," which will take place at 5:00PM on Sunday,
Sept. 1, during which the Platinum Games creative director will take about his
vision for the game. However, we're guessing PAX attendees will be more excited
by the lineup of playable games Nintendo has planned for the show. In addition to offering convention goers hands-on time with Pokémon X & Y, Nintendo is also
showing off Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, The
Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and much more.

approach to E3, but the company knows how to do PAX right. Not only will
