Nintendo Has Revealed More Playable Games At Its PAX Aus 2023 Booth

Can't wait!

Nintendo’s set to have a massive presence at this year’s PAX Aus expo, and while we already knew it was going to feature a playable demo of the upcoming Super Mario Bros. Wonder ahead of release at PAX Aus 2023, we now have a better idea of its plans for the show floor – including a few more playable pre-release goodies.

One of the more exciting reveals is that PAX attendees will be able to get their hands on Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown at the Nintendo booth, well before its release next year. There will also be hands-on opportunities for Star Ocean: The Second Story R, and Detective Pikachu Returns – which will have just released on the first day of PAX Aus, Friday October 6th.

For anyone who didn’t get to play Hollow Knight: Silksong at the Nintendo PAX Aus Booth in 2019, it’s looks to be sadly missing again this year…

Here’s (some of) what you’ll be able to play this year:
