Nintendo has revealed details of its presence at Comic-Con, Thursday through Sunday in San Diego.:

  • A number of Nintendo DS units will be set up for visitors to try out upcoming games, including Elite Beat Agents, Mario Hoops 3 on 3, Star Fox Command and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon.
  • A download station will provide additional demos for DS owners, and a multi-player zone will be featured.
  • Many prizes will be given out at the Nintendo booth, and visitors can increase their chances of winning something by dressing up as a Nintendo character on the day.
  • Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario, will be available for autographs. Costumed characters will be available, though only Mario and Link have been specified.

However, perhaps of most interest to Pokémon fans is the chance to meet the new voice actors for Ash and Brock in the English-language anime dub, as previously reported on Bulbanews. Pokémon USA representatives will be present to answer questions about the dub's ninth series.
