Later this month, thousands of attendees will flock to the Earl’s Court exhibition centre for HYPER JAPAN 2014. At the exhibition of all things Japan, including anime, manga and games, Nintendo will also be present bringing along a showcase of its latest and greatest titles.

Visitors lucky enough to attend in person will be greeted by a range of games for Wii U and 3DS to try out along with titles like Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and the new Super Smash Bros which will be the first time these games can be played by the UK public!

At HYPER JAPAN there will be four key areas on the Nintendo stand for gamers to enjoy: Wii U, Nintendo 3DS & 2DS, Tomodachi Life and merchandise from the Nintendo UK Online Store.

Visitors to the Nintendo stand will also have the chance to go hunting for beasts in Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on Nintendo 3DS as well as take an exclusive sneak peak at amiibo, Nintendo’s recently announced NFC-activated interactive figures. Not only will there be the opportunity to get hands on with some pre-release games, but guests will be able to burn rubber with their friends while turning their world upside-down with the gravity-defying Mario Kart 8 on Wii U.

Visitors will also be able to buy a range of merchandise normally only available on the Nintendo UK Online Store.

Remember to bring along your Nintendo 3DS or 2DS so you can play games with other users, increase your StreetPass encounters in games such as StreetPass Mii Plaza and enjoy Puzzle Swap and StreetPass Quest; Tomodachi Life players will also be able to exchange rare items or explorers via StreetPass.
