Eurogamer Expo 2011 Preview


Tomorrow (22 Sep 11) at Earls Court London, one of the UK’s biggest gaming events begins.  Eurogamer Expo runs from Thu 22 Sep through until Sun 25 Sep and features all of this year’s best upcoming gaming releases.

Top of the bill is the big three, Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and Gears of War 3 along with the other hard hitting contenders Skyrim, Rage, Batman Arkham City, Assassins Creed Revelations, Mass Effect 3 and a whole host of others.  The full list of games is available on the Eurogamer Expo website.

Of course, the Nintendo Unleashed team will be there showcasing a huge amount of upcoming Nintendo 3DS titles along with the Zelda 25th Anniversary Tour as seen at GAMEfest.  Their titles at the show will be as follows:

3DS Stand

  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Super Pokémon Rumble
  • Resident Evil Revelations
  • Kid Icarus Uprising
  • Metal Gear Solid 3D – Snake Eater
  • Driver Renegade

Unleashed Stand – Zelda Takeover

  • Zelda Skyward Sword (Wii)
  • Zelda Ocarina of Time (3DS)

On Saturday and Sunday at the Nintendo Unleashed stand, they will be giving away Ocarina’s and Zelda keyrings to anyone in cosplay between 14:00 and 15:00.  So get your best Zelda or Nintendo related cosplay ready and head over to the Nintendo Unleashed area in Zone 1.

Also on show will be Sony’s new handheld, the PS Vita and OnLive’s new innovative system.  Both of which will be attracting huge crowds.  OnLive will be giving away thousands of gaming units to attendees of Eurogamer as the UK service launches this weekend.

Insert Coin Clothing are also going to be at the show.  The gaming related clothing company are kindly providing a prize for our coming Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony competition.  During Eurogamer, they’re going to have giveaways, exclusive tees, competitions and they designed this year’s exclusive Eurogamer T-shirts.  Check out their blog post for more details and be sure to head over to their stand if you’re going to the event.

So, what are the Nintendo Scene peeps looking forward to at Eurogamer?

StealthBuda – Im there on Thu/Fri/Sat and I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the 3DS’ competition.  I want to see how the PS Vita runs and feels.  I’m also intrigued by OnLive.  I’ve played all of the Nintendo releases at other events, but I want another go on Mario Kart and Icarus.  Game wise, I’ll be heading straight for the playable demo of Skyrim and Ninja Gaiden 3 as well as hopefully getting some more time with Resident Evil Operation Racoon City and Street Fighter X Tekken.

Wes – I’m there on Thu/Sat and I’m looking forward to getting on Skyward Sword as I haven’t played that yet and Mario Kart 7 again.  Then I’ll be straight on to Modern Warfare 3, Battlefield 3 and Batman Arkham City.

Katy (who unfortunately can’t make EGXP) – I’d love to get another go on Kid Icarus Uprising as I’ve only played a short demo and of course you can never get enough of Skyward Sword.  Outside of Nintendo, I wanted to get my hands on Assassin’s Creed Revelations and Street Fighter X Tekken.

So if you’re not able to go to Eurogamer, or on the days you’re not going, be sure to follow @StealthBuda and @wesearp who will be posting through @NintendoScene and their own twitter accounts throughout the event.

Are you going to Eurogamer Expo?  If so which days and where are you heading straight to?  Or if you’re not going, what are you gutted the most about missing?
