Nintendo Life are on the lookout for the United Kingdom’s best Mario Kart 8 players to take part in the first ever Nintendo Life UK Mario Kart 8 Tournament, to be held at this year’s EGX London between September 25-28. EGX London is the con formerly known as the Eurogamer Expo.
Throughout August and early September, Nintendo Life will be hosting a series of online races to find the 12 best Mario Kart 8 players. Those players will then be invited to attend the gaming expo to compete for the title. The champion will win a copy of every WiiU first-party physical software release for the following 12 months, 100 pounds of Nintendo eShop Credit, and a number of other prizes yet to be determined.
In addition, those Nintendo fans who weren’t able to enter the main tournament can head to the Nintendo Life area at EGX London and take part in Mario Kart 8 mini-tournaments to test their skills against each other. There will be several prizes at stake, including Nintendo plushies, Official Nintendo UK Store vouchers, Nintendo eShop Credit, and mini-trophies.
Nintendo will also host their own booth at EGX London 2014, which will play host to the first National StreetPass Weekend. After the success of National StreetPass Day in 2013, the fun has been extended to cover both 27th and 28th of September with more StreetPass related activities and Nintendo prizes on offer including Nintendo eShop credit ranging from £10-£100, toys and games from Nintendo. Further details to be announced over the coming weeks. If you already own a Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL or 2DS system then make sure you bring your console along to EGX London 2014 so that you can take part in all the fun of National StreetPass Weekend. You can increase your StreetPass hits, collect puzzle pieces, and meet Mii characters from many different regions, as Nintendo fans come together.
