San Diego Comic-Con 2017 takes place between July 20-23, and Nintendo has a bunch of activities planned out for the event, including Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2, Pokkén Tournament DX as playable titles.
Visitors to the ballroom will get a chance to check out Nintendo Switch titles such as Splatoon 2, Pokkén Tournament DX, and Flip Wars (previously known as Project Mekuru) a multiplayer action game for Switch that launches August 10.
Attendees will also get to try out select Nintendo 3DS games in 2D on the New Nintendo 2DS XL system before it launches later this month.
