Play 3DS XL and new games at Comic-Con

Nintendo brings its new toys to the public show

Attendees of the San Diego Comic-Con this week will have the opportunity to go hands-on with the new 3DS XL, Nintendo has confirmed.


The new machine isn't out in America until August 19 (weeks after the UK launch on July 28), so it'll be a nice early preview for anyone interested.

As well as its booth at the show, Nintendo will also have a Nintendo Gaming Lounge that'll be open to the public - you won't need a ticket to Comic-Con to get in.

Inside, you'll find playable versions of:

Nintendo 3DS / Nintendo 3DS XL
- New Super Mario Bros. 2
- Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
- Kid Icarus: Uprising
- Mario Kart 7
- Super Mario 3D Land
- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate
- KINGDOM HEARTS 3D [Dream Drop Distance]
- LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

Nintendo DS family
- Pokémon Conquest

- Kirby's Dream Collection: Special Edition
- Just Dance 4 (Ubisoft)

Comic-Con takes place from July 12-15 at the San Diego Convention Center. The Nintendo Gaming Lounge will be located in the San Diego Ballroom at the Marriott Marquis & Marina at 333 W. Harbor Drive, adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center.
