Nintendo will showcase five upcoming games at this weekend’s PAX East convention… unfortunately, The Legend of Zelda Wii U didn’t make the cut. However, Star Fox Zero, which will also be available in stores on April 22, did.
Congoers will also have the chance to try out a few games making their playable debut including Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE (Wii U) and a trio of 3DS games. Fans of Nintendo’s handheld will be able to try Kirby: Planet Robobot, Monster Hunter Generations, and Metroid Prime: Federation Force on the show floor for the first time. And speaking of Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Nintendo also confirmed this morning that it’ll be released on August 19.
If you’re unfamiliar with any of the games in Nintendo’s PAX East 2016 lineup, more details are available after the break.
As legendary space pilot Fox McCloud, blast through an onslaught of enemy forces to bring peace to the galaxy in Star Fox Zero. In this white-knuckle space shooter, it’ll take more than luck to master the Arwing jet, the Gyrowing flight drone, and the Landmaster tank! You have what it takes. Now prove it.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions FE is a stylish new Wii U role-playing game from Atlus, developers of numerous RPG series. This energetic game features a deep battle system inspired by both the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei series imbued with a J-Pop twist, and includes real-life locations in Tokyo.
The Kirby: Planet Robobot game launches on June 10 and finds Kirby equipping powerful Robobot Armor to destroy obstacles and copy enemy abilities. The game will launch with a new line of Kirby series Amiibo figures (sold separately), but the game is also compatible with all Amiibo, giving Kirby fun character-specific and random Copy Abilities. Kirby himself will also be available for photos in the Nintendo booth.
Launching this Summer, the Monster Hunter Generations game is the next entry in the popular action RPG series. It is the most customizable Monster Hunter experience to date, and serves as a fitting tribute to the last decade of the series.
Also playable at the Nintendo booth is the Metroid Prime: Federation Force game. The sci-fi shooter that finds a squad of up to four players working together to combat space pirates launches exclusively for Nintendo 3DS on August 19.
