Nintendo has shared its extensive plans for San Diego Comic-Con 2015.

First, here’s a look at the company’s lineup for the show:

Nintendo 3DS

All of these games are playable at Nintendo’s booth (No. 235). They’ll also be featured at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge in the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina (333 W. Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101), which doesn’t a Comic-Con badge for entry. The lounge will be open from 10 AM to 7 PM July 9-11 and 10 AM to 5 PM on July 12.

The Nintendo Gaming Lounge will highlight Super Mario Maker in a big way. Those who stop by can “view a stage show in which members of the Nintendo Treehouse will demonstrate the game’s features, including level-creation techniques that will help people easily create custom levels in the game to share with friends.” The voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, will also be on hand.

That’s not all though. Tournaments are planned for Splatoon, Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

Head past the break for the rundown of the different tournaments, plus information about Little Battlers eXperience to win collectible figures.

On Saturday, July 11, Nintendo will host its first-ever Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Championship Tournament for kids 12 and under. The winner of this tournament will receive an amiibo prize pack containing Ness, Greninja, Jigglypuff, Charizard, PAC-MAN, Wario, Robin, Lucina and Mario – Gold Edition amiibo figures.
