Nintendo Announces Lineup for San Diego Comic-Con 2017; Super Mario Odyssey to be Playable
Nintendo provides details on what they'll be showcasing later this month in San Diego at the country's largest comic convention.
Today, Nintendo announced its lineup of games that they will be bringing with them later this month to San Diego Comic-Con 2017. For those who will be attending the show — taking place from July 20 to 23 — you’ll have a chance to go hands on with some of Nintendo’s upcoming releases on both the Switch and 3DS.
Perhaps the most notable game that Nintendo will be showing off in San Diego is the highly anticipated platformer Super Mario Odyssey. While many fans will surely be anxious to get their hands on one of the fall’s biggest releases, it will only be available for play exclusively at Nintendo’s booth on the Comic-Con show floor. It’s unspecified just how many units will be available for play on the floor so if you want to make sure that you can play Super Mario Odyssey, you might want to hurry there when the convention opens. All other games that Nintendo is bringing with them will be found in a ballroom at the San Diego Mariott Marquis & Marina.
You can find the full list of playable games, as well as the locations in which they will be playable as follows:
San Diego Convention Center – Nintendo Booth (No. 235)

Plus, there will be a ton of photo ops, cosplayers, and even some competitive tournaments involving both Splatoon 2 and Pokken Tournament DX with the chance to win some great prizes.
Of course, all of these events will be free to the public so if you’re planning on going to San Diego Comic-Con, it sounds like a great opportunity to check out some of Nintendo’s upcoming offerings.
