I'm headed to New York later today to attend this year's New York Comic-Con, set to take place October 11-14 at the Javits Center. Nintendo is setting up right now for attendees, and it looks like they'll be showing off several Wii U titles at their booth this weekend. The Wonderful 101, New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, and more will be on hand for the masses.
For the 3DS, you'll find Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and a handful of others open for play. To promote the latter, Nintendo will be sticker-bombing the Javits Center as well as willing attendees. Fans that collect all four stickers will be eligible to receive a fifth special bonus sticker. The first 400 of those sticker hunters will get a giant sticker they can post to a community-created billboard at the event.
Finally, tournaments for Kid Icarus: Uprising and New Super Mario Bros. 2 will take place throughout the weekend. Prizes include 3DS XL systems.
See you there?

Sure, the meme is a bit old but the added sound effects to the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate video is what really made this spoof for me. Bravo, Capcom-Unity. [Thanks, Dale!]more
