Here’s What Nintendo Is Bringing To San Diego Comic-Con 2014


Other than the previously-announced Super Smash Bros for 3DS tournament, not much has been known about what Nintendo plans to bring to the table when it comes to upcoming super convention San Diego Comic-Con 2014. However, today that changes. The Japanese games company has sent out a press release, indicating what the company plans to do with their “biggest presence at Comic-Con ever.”

More from 3DS

Outside of bringing Smash play for both the 3DS and Wii U, other upcoming games like Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and more will be able to be played hands-on at the convention floor. Nintendo also plans to stream a great chunk of gameplay on the Nintendo Twitch channel through the weekend, allowing those who cannot attend the chance to see these games in action, some of which possibly for the first time.

A list of the games scheduled for Twitch broadcast are as follows:

Wii U

  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
  • Hyrule Warriors
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
  • Yoshi’s Woolly World
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Bayonetta 2
  • Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric
  • Just Dance 2015
  • Skylanders Trap Team
  • Shovel Knight
  • 1001 Spikes
  • Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition


  • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS from Nintendo
  • Pokémon Art Academy from Nintendo
  • Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney from Nintendo
  • Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal from SEGA
  • Shovel Knight from Yacht Club Games (Nintendo eShop)
  • Siesta Fiesta from Mojo Bones Ltd. (Nintendo eShop)

Gameplay previews aren’t the only thing on hand for Nintendo at SDCC 2014. Fans of Bayonetta that have an attendance badge will also be able to watch a screening of a new animated film about the character action game heroine, called Bayonetta: Bloody Fate. It will screen on Friday July 25th local time in Marriott Hall Room 4.

Honestly, it’s quite refreshing to see how Nintendo has been tackling conventions lately. Tournaments, gameplay challenges, film screenings, Indie showcases; it’s a stark turnaround from not quite understanding or appreciating the fan-focused appeal that they could bring. Plus, any chance to play Smash in any form early is a great chance to take up.
