As fun as it was, Gamescom is now over, so it’s time to turn our attention to the next event that Nintendo will be attending and it is of course PAX West 2016, which will run from the 2nd to the 5th of September.
But before the event even kicks off, Nintendo will be hosting a Nindies@Night event, so if you’re in Seattle and you feel like playing some Nintendo Indie Games, you might just want to add Nindies@Night to your bucket list.

As for other activities, Nintendo will be offering a Pokémon Sun & Moon photo experience, giving out a collectable gift to those who pre-order a copy of the upcoming Pokémon titles and so much more.
