Nintendo has recently announced that the much-awaited Nintendo Live 2023 event will take place from September 1 to 4 at the Seattle Convention Center alongside PAX West. This ticketed event is open to everyone, and the best part is, tickets are free! However, interested individuals need to register and be selected to attend. Registration for tickets will start on May 31 at 9 am PT and will be open until June 22 at 11:59 pm PT.
Nintendo has clarified that possessing a PAX West badge alone does not guarantee entry to the event. Attendees need to check the official PAX West website for more information and updates. Nintendo Live 2023 is an in-person celebration of Nintendo fun and not a venue for new product announcements, as confirmed by Nintendo in its FAQ section.
Nintendo Live 2023 is the first Nintendo Live event to be held outside Japan, as revealed by Nintendo last April. The event will feature various Nintendo-related activities, such as tournaments (Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 3), photo opportunities with popular costume characters like Mario and Luigi, live stage performances, and other exciting events. Attendees can also participate in hands-on gameplay booths and buy Nintendo merchandise.
To register for the event, eligible Nintendo Account holders who are at least 18 years old can visit the Nintendo Live website and register for an opportunity to be randomly selected to receive free tickets. Group attendees with their own Nintendo Accounts need to be linked to the same Nintendo Account Family group to ensure that they can attend together and on the same day.
Participants can attend the event for one day only if selected. Nintendo Live 2023 will be held alongside the PAX West gaming and pop-culture convention, and PAX West badge holders who are interested in attending Nintendo Live 2023 can visit the official PAX West website for more details.
In addition to Nintendo Switch gameplay, photo ops, live performances, and merchandise, Nintendo Live 2023 will also host the highly anticipated Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Championship 2023 and Splatoon 3 Championship 2023 tournaments. Online qualifiers for these tournaments will begin on May 27, and the top performers will secure their tickets to Nintendo Live 2023 and the chance to compete against the best on the big stage.
Nintendo Live 2023 promises to be an exciting event for all members of the family, and attendees can expect to have a great time celebrating Nintendo fun.
