The last time we saw Nintendo with a sweet booth was during E3 2016 when they only brought Zelda which probably stole most of the show making 8 hour lines. Now for the first time since the Switch was revealed Nintendo will be bringing the console to its first major event in PAX South where anyone who has a badge will get to play.
You will be able to play at least 8 games including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, Snipperclips: Cut it out, together!, Splatoon 2, ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Bomberman R, and  Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. 
At the Nintendo Switch event in NY they had a different setting for several games such as playing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in a airplane setting or a diner setting or playing Fast RMX on a couch like you are at home. It looks like Nintendo will be bringing an interactive booth just like that to PAX South.

“But instead of a traditional booth setup, these games can be experienced in creative environments that show off the unique functionality of the Nintendo Switch system. For example, games can be played in the cross-section of an airplane to show how easy it is to take Nintendo Switch with you anywhere. Other games will be set up in a living room to highlight that Nintendo Switch is also a home gaming system that can be played on a TV.”

Nintendo will have a main stage that will feature hosted competitions, live demonstrations, video presentations and other fun Nintendo surprises.

 “We absolutely love bringing our games and systems directly to the fans, and PAX South is a great venue to do just that,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “PAX South will be one of the first opportunities for fans to try out Nintendo Switch before it launches on March 3.”

This is the first time PAX South will have something new and major at the event since its debut back a few years ago.
