More On: Splatoon Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

If you're headed to PAX East next weekend, you'll have the chance to check out some of Nintendo's upcoming titles. They're headed to the show, with headlining Wii U title Splatoon and the bizarre 3DS RTS Code Name S.T.E.A.M. Naturally they'll also have the New 3DS XL on hand for all the demos, including big titles for the handheld including Majora's Mask 3D and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Personally I'm most excited for Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, which is a little over a month away from its April 10th launch.
