The Wonderful 101In addition to the news that Retro City Rampage will be playable as a 3DS eShop title at PAX Prime, which takes place from 30th August to 2nd September at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle. Nintendo is also bringing a host of Wii U games to the event, as well as organising a special session with Hideki Kamiya.

Hideki Kamiya, of PlatinumGames, will be talking about Wii U title The Wonderful 101, and his session — called “Inside The Wonderful 101 with Hideki Kamiya” — will include an actor dressed as Wonder Red handing out free Wonder-Masks. Naturally the main prize is hearing the Director talk about the game, but there’ll also be a retail space where Nintendo will sell, among other things, 101 copies of The Wonderful 101 every day on a first-come, first-served basis, which means potentially getting the game two weeks before it hits stores in North America. Spending over $25 (pre-tax) in the retail section will also earn you a printed Luigi timeline while stock lasts.

Some Zelda activities will also be taking place to celebrate The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds; a “Treasure Quest” will involve a map to four quests in the convention centre, and those that complete all four can win a crayfish design T-Shirt, a theme from The Wind Waker. There’ll also be a King of Red Lions replica ship to pose with for photos.
