PAX West 2017

If yesterday’s Nindies Showcase wasn’t enough, Nintendo has even more indie fun in store for us tonight. The Nindies@Night event in Seattle is underway, and HyperRPG is hosting a stream in collaboration with the Big N. We’ll be seeing gameplay and apparently some announcements as well.

You can watch the stream as it happens below. It should begin at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM in the UK / 6 AM in Europe.

SEGA will have two games on display at PAX West 2017 later this week. Along with Sonic Forces, Total War: Warhammer II will be playable.

PAX West runs between September 1 and September 4.

Square Enix announced its lineup for PAX West 2017 today. The company will have several playable games on hand, though only one is relevant to Nintendo fans.

Lost Sphear launches for Switch in January. PAX attendees who pre-order the game from the Square Enix Online Store can receive an exclusive t-shirt.

A new trailer for Tiny Metal has gone live ahead of PAX West 2017 later this week. Take a look at the video below.

Nintendo has announced its plans and lineup for this year’s PAX West. To say that the company has a lot in store would probably be an understatement.

The first highlight concerns playable games. Super Mario Odyssey will be playable, along with NBA 2K18 and Rocket League for the first time. FIFA 18 and Pokken Tournament DX will be on hand as well.

PAX West provided its official schedule for all of the events taking place at the expo at the beginning of September. A “special” Nintendo panel was among what was listed.

The listing has since updated, and provides details as to what’s in store. Rather than a developer panel, Kit and Krysta will actually be hosting a live episode of Nintendo Minute. Attendees will be treated to some new gameplay, which we should see later on.

Here’s the official panel description:

Join us for a live filming of Nintendo Minute! We’ll be taking a look at new game play for Metroid: Samus Returns, showing off some amazing fan art submitted by you and giving away some cool Metroid goodies. Hope to see you there! – Kit & Krysta


Nintendo tends to appear at the regular PAX events each year. With PAX West 2017 just a few weeks away, the big N’s presence is confirmed – and in an interesting way.

The official PAX West schedule was published this week. We now know that Nintendo will be holding some sort of panel in the Hydra Theater on September 2 between 10 and 11 AM. The panel itself is a mystery at present, with its description simply stating: “A special Nintendo panel at PAX West 2017!”

Could it be for Metroid: Samus Returns? Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s upcoming DLC? Anything is on the table at this point. Nintendo should be announcing details about the panel soon, along with other plans it has in store for PAX West 2017.
