Nintendo is heading to this week's New York Comic Con with plenty of gaming goodness in tow. In addition to giveaways like Paper Mario: Sticker Star stickers, there will also be a bunch of playable Wii U games and a booth dedicated specifically to New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kid Icarus: Uprising tournaments.
The New Super Mario Bros. 2 tournament pits players against one another in the newly released Coin Rush course packs, with high scores posted and updated throughout the day. Everyone's a winner, though, because all participants will receive a Gold Mario pin for playing while they're still available. The top scorer at the end of each day will get a Nintendo 3DS XL.
Kid Icarus: Uprising challenges include up to six players going at it in five-minute Free-For-All rounds. At the end of the qualifying period, it gets narrowed down to the top 12 highest scorers in three rounds of Free-For-All. Everyone gets an Uprising AR Card pack, and the daily champion nets a Kid Icarus AR Card Core Set with more than 400 cards and a 3DS XL. Second place gets the AR Card Core Set.
Here's the lineup of games that will be available for sampling:
