Nintendo announces Gamestar live line up

Nintendo today announced its final line up for Game Stars Live (GSL) promising visitors an array of exciting treats to look forward to at its end of pier themed stand, including a fortune telling tent where everyone will be able to catch a glimpse of what the future holds for Nintendo including sneak previews of forthcoming hardware and software.

The Nintendo Pier will feature a unique Mario gaming area where visitors will have the chance to play their favourite Mario games. The Nintendo Pier will also be the final date on The Tribal Tour which has been out on the road this summer visiting all the biggest music festivals. This Game Boy Advance SP Limited Tribal Edition branded camper van will offer visitors to the stand the opportunity to get a free temporary tattoo.

Nintendo has a few more tricks up its sleeve with a selection of interactive challenges lined up for the show. Taking place on Nintendo’s very own stage, located within The Nintendo Pier, visitors will have the opportunity to learn how to play real bongo drums, taught by a professional bongo drummer. Visitors will be encouraged to bang bongos to their heart’s content and pick up a few tips, which could come in handy when challenging friends in the Donkey Konga Bongo Battles.

Visitors can also take part in a Metroid Prime 2 Echoes challenge which will culminate in an intense showdown on the main Game Stars Live stage.

And if that’s not enough to keep everyone excited, Nintendo will be showcasing an impressive selection of games at the event for the first time ever in the UK. These include the highly anticipated Metroid Prime 2 Echoes, The Legend of Zelda The Minish Cap, Animal Crossing and Pokèmon FireRed and Pokèmon LeafGreen.
