Nintendo UK Outline Plans For Hyper Japan Festival 2016

Nintendo UK has shared their plans for Hyper Japan Festival 2016, which largely look to highlight several Nintendo 3DS exclusives.

Attendees step into Springdale to immerse themselves in the world of LEVEL-5’s Yo-kai Watch, activities ranging from a Yo-kai Art Contest, try the iconic Yo-kai Watch dance with Jibanyan in front of a green screen, and take part in a Yo-Kai Stamp Quest where the first 300 people each day to spot ten hidden Yo-kai will win a Yo-kai Watch Medal Mystery Bag.

Monster Hunter Generations will also be playable, with expert players taking to the stage to offer their advice in tackling the sprawling action RPG, while a Prowler and props present a chance to snap photos.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past will be playable for the first time in the United Kingdom, which will appear alongside other Nintendo 3DS exclusive RPGs such as Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest, Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, Hyrule Warriors Legends, Bravely Second: End Layer, and Final Fantasy Explorers.

Pikachu will also make an appearance to help celebrate 20 years since Pokémon Red and Green first launched in Japan, while a special distribution of Shiny Xerneas will be available to those with Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Wandering through the Year of Pokémon area in the Nintendo booth will let you take a walk down memory lane, and also receive a special code.

Attendees can also play Wii U exclusive Pokkén Tournament, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon and Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue and Pokémon Yellow.

Hyper Japan Festival 2016 takes place between Friday 15th – Sunday 17th July 2016 at the Olympia in London.
