Nintendo is giving attendees at this year’s PAX East show an up-close look at the remarkable features, games and entertainment options made possible by the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system. Taking place April 6-8 in Boston, PAX East will also be the site of special activities designed to help celebrate the recent launch of Kid Icarus™: Uprising for Nintendo 3DS. Attendees can take part in a scavenger hunt for select Kid Icarus: Uprising AR Cards; trade, share and collect additional AR Cards; and take part in a multiplayer tournament 6-9 p.m. on Friday, April 6, in the Handheld Lounge. Attendees who would like to participate in the tournament can bring their own Nintendo 3DS and Kid Icarus: Uprising game card and use almost any Weapon or Power they have earned in the tournament.
