The MCM London Comic Con will be held this weekend, May 22nd – May 24th at the Excel, Royal Victoria Docks, London. Nintendo will be in attendance along with several games to be featured that are focused mainly on multi-player gameplay. They will be hosting several multi-player matches from  Wii U titles, such as the new 200cc mode for Mario Kart 8, amiibo competitions on Super Smash Bros., and Splatoon multiplayer battles. There will also be a pop-up store with exclusive and limited edition items like new 3DS cover plates and the Majora’s Mask 3DS XL Bundle that includes Skullkid. Monster Hunter 4 experts will also be on hand to give tips and hints in “Learn to Hunt” sessions. It is sure to be a fun-filled weekend!

Well, this is certainly one of the more unique pre-order bonuses I’ve seen in a while. When you buy Splatoon at Target, you get an exclusive Splatoon-branded squirt gun for free as long as supplies last.

Japan now has access to a new Splatoon manga. It’s apparently a one-time feature included in CoroCoro’s June issue. How neat would this be to see on a regular basis?!
