Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo – Mississauga, Ontario

Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (EGLX), which is Canada’s largest gaming expo, will take place in Mississauga, Ontario between March 9th and March 11th. EGLX will feature a variety of game-related programming, including eSports tournaments, indie developer booths, virtual reality demos and more.

Nintendo will be one of the exhibitors at the show, offering a Nintendo Switch-focused booth with several playable games. A Pokkén Tournament DX mini-tournament will also be held, with some of the show’s YouTuber’s guests taking on the E3 2017 invitational champion, Allister Singh.

March Break at Wizard World – Toronto, ON**

Nintendo will be at the Wizard World Fun Park between March 15th to 18th to offer what it calls a “magical set up that will create memories.” It’s currently unclear exactly what this will entail, though Nintendo says Mario will be making an appearance each day between 1pm and 5pm.

**Nintendo says each of these locations will allow guests who are MyNintendo members to scan a QR code once per event to get rewarded with points, while supplies last.

MyNintendo is a free program that allows consumers to earn points by using apps or purchasing select digital titles, which can later be redeemed for rewards like in-game content and discounts on other downloadable games. As well, Nintendo recently announced that Switch games will also begin to be offered as rewards in March.
