PAX East will see plenty of big names descend upon Boston on April 11-13, from Microsoft to Oculus to Ubisoft to Square Enix. And plenty of you, I’m sure. Side Questing stumbled on the full list of exhibitors, which you can see below and plan what you’ll spend the weekend checking out (besides booze and too many fedoras).
Nintendo of America have confirmed today that they won’t be attending this year’s PAX East event, which is taking place April 11th to April 13th. Normally Nintendo of America has always been at PAX East so it comes as a shock that they won’t be attending this year.
Neogaf poster kyoya did a comparison to last year’s exhibitor list to see who has bowed out this year, including Nintendo, Sony, EA Games, Capcom, Sega, Warner Bros Interactive, Twisted Pixel and Deep Silver. Some big names. I guess they’re saving themselves for E3. Which is terrifyingly near.
Nintendo spokespersons have confirmed that Nintendo will not be attending PAX East 2014. This will be the first time Nintendo has not attended the convention. “Interacting directly with our fans and letting them play our games firsthand is a key component of our approach,” the spokesperson said, speaking to Polygon.
