Nintendo PAX East Lineup Revealed – Dark Souls Remastered Among Playable Games
With less than a week to go before the event, an announcement has arrived about the Nintendo PAX East lineup. The company has selected its top games and plans to include fun competitions for those who stop by. It appears the Nintendo presence will be strong this year and fans will get a chance to try out the listed games.
The Nintendo PAX East lineup will include both popular titles and many of the “Nindies” revealed in the last showcase. Games like Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and West of Loathing will have a place at the event.

We love being able to get fun games from Nintendo and our partners into the hands of some of our biggest fans. PAX East gives us the opportunity to showcase some of the best new and upcoming games for Nintendo Switch.”
