Kirby Star Allies @ Emerald City Comic Con

Yesterday, Nintendo confirmed that they would be at the Emerald City Comic Con, which takes place from March 1st to March 4th, in Seattle (Washington State Convention Center at 705 Pike St.). There will be some special events for Kirby Star Allies:

  • playable demo for Kirby Star Allies, with select Nintendo representatives brining Nintendo Switch consoles to people waiting in line, allowing them to try out the game in Handheld Mode;
  • Kirby-themed items will be distributed to people performing random act of kindness. Select Nintendo representatives will be walking around the Emerald City Comic Con, and if they spot people doing something nice (like picking up litter, holding the door for a stranger, etc.), they will go and give them Kirby-themed items.

Kirby Star Allies (Switch) comes out on March 16th, worldwide.

Yesterday, Nintendo announced that the Grand Finale of the Splatoon European Championship would take place on March 31st, at Polymanga in Switzerland. On the same day (just before the tournament, in fact), Off the Hook will hold their second live performance at the Stravinski Hall – Montreux Music & Convention Center (2m2c).

Unfortunately, we don’t know if either events will be livestreamed, or even recorded yet, but Nintendo will share more details about both soon. Stay tuned!
