Jul 10th, 2014


If you plan on attending Hyper Japan 2014 in London this year, you’ll be able to experience Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS, as well as Monster Hunter 4 for the 3DS for the first time in the UK. Nintendo has been busy putting together its plans for the show and attendees will be able to focus on these three games, as well as Tomodachi Life and merchandise from the Nintendo UK online store. Amiibo figurines will also be there for attendees to check out.

Here’s what Shelly Pierce, PR Director for Nintendo UK had to say about the event.

We have a packed line up of games coming out this year and HYPER JAPAN gives us the perfect opportunity to share the fun with our fans ahead of launch. Early reactions to Super Smash Bros. on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS have been great and we’re pleased to be able to bring these titles to the UK public for the first time as part of HYPER JAPAN.

Will you be attending the event from July 25 – 27? Let us know in the comments!

    Has anyone else seen the Monster Hunter mobile game? Is it any good? it looks like a MH console game only portable (score!)

    • J_Joestar

      from what i hear, it is a pretty faithful port of Freedom Unite for PSP, but that your mileage may vary due to the touch controls unless you are willing to shell out for a physical controller for your ios device.

    Always wondered why they made Link faster.. he is so OP already.. And now fast too? Win/Win

    *Darth Vader Voice* NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    that’s the date when I’m leaving for France! (the 25th) oh well besides even if I wasn’t going to France I still wouldn’t be able to go because I’d be at the Commonwealth Games watching my brother boxing for Scotland……..GO SCOTLAND!! haha

    Seems like I’m destined to just wait until SSB4 actually releases before I get my hands on the game 🙁 maybe I’ll watch some videos on youtube while I’m in France. if there’ll be any that is.

  • Probably not due to work but I should be there on July 25th if I could, would be the ultimate birthday gift, playing MH4U and Smash Brothers 🙂

  • Rinslowe

    MH4U. Yup. Gets my vote.

    I have a favour to ask to anybody going to London just for this. Could you record the gameplay and get it up on youtube?

    I’d go to London myself but I’ll be in France at the time so I’d really appreciate it if somebody could put it up.
