PAX Prime attendees will get the chance to play a long list of new and upcoming games for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS later this month, including Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, which will be playable by the public for the first time at the show.

Nintendo will have a dedicated Pokémon Gaming Lounge set up on the second floor of the Washington State Convention Center where Pokémon X and Pokémon Y will be playable.

Nintendo will showcase 12 Wii U titles from first-party and third-party developers, including Super Mario 3D World, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Bayonetta 2 and Sonic Lost World. Nintendo 3DS games on display include The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate and, for the first time, Retro City Rampage.
