Nintendo Comic Con

The big comic convention of the summer is set to get underway, with the San Diego Comic-Con taking place this weekend between July 19th and July 22nd. The event is expected to host some huge panels and reveals for some of the most highly anticipated movies, comic books and video games. One of the publishers set to have a booth at this year's event to showcase some of the hotly anticipated games due for release this fall is none other than the Big N. The company will be spearheading its show at the weekend convention with the presence of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

According to the press release that Nintendo sent out, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will headline the presence of the game maker and hardware producer at SDCC. There will be additional Nintendo Switch games on display, along with a number of activities to partake in as well. The multiplayer fighting game will be joined by Mario Tennis Aces, another first-party exclusive that came out near the end of June for the Nintendo Switch, and Electronic Arts' FIFA 19. Yes, EA Sports is releasing the newest FIFA game onto the Nintendo Switch. Apparently, last year's soccer outing turned out to be a decent enough success for the Switch.

And, speaking of big games from last year... Super Mario Odyssey will be on display as well. The 3D platformer has been one of the biggest selling titles for the Nintendo Switch, moving millions upon millions of copies. It's not hard to see why when you see just how fun, and free, and detailed the game world is.

The Wii U exclusive that was ported to the Switch, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, will also be on hand, along with two of the most highly anticipated games due out this fall for the Nintendo Switch: Pokemon Let's Go Eevee and Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu.

Both games are designed to take advantage of the Nintendo Switch's portable and home console gaming capabilities. You'll be able to play at home on your couch, or take both games with you while you're on the go, walking down the street or commuting to work or school.

What's more is that both the new Pokemon games will have cross-platform compatibility with Niantic Labs' Pokemon Go, enabling users to capture Pokemon from the mobile phone game and transfer them over into the Nintendo Switch titles.

Last but not least is the other Wii U port, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which will also be made available for play at San Diego Comic-Con on the Nintendo Switch.

All of the games will be highlighted as part of Nintendo's presence at the fan convention. As mentioned in the tweet on the official Twitter account, fans between 13 and 19 years of age are invited to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge to participate in a 64-player Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Arcadian teen Tournament set to take place on July 21st. You can check out the games and events hosted by Nintendo at the convention starting this weekend.
