Operation: Power Up @ PAX South

Last weekend, we at Operation: Power Up attended PAX South, the first Penny Arcade Expo located in the south. Gamers from around the San Antonio area participated in the festivities. We at Operation: Power Up had four objectives while being there:
1. Promote our campaign.
2. Inform gamers of Pure Nintendo Magazine and Nintendo Force if they haven't heard of it by now. 3. Check out the Nintendo booth.
4. Find as many Nintendo cosplayers to fill up this post.

At PAX South, Nintendo was promoting the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Majroa's Mask 3D and the New Nintendo 3DS. Here's some pics we took of the Nintendo booth.

The booth and it's entirety.

 Fun fact: Nintendo commissioned Li Kovacs to make the prop above.

The tickets were given to players who finished playing a demo. They can be exchanged for free Nintendo stuff.
Free Nintendo swag!

We got a picture with Krysta Yang!
 You might remember her from the Nintendo Minute videos. Since our campaign is Nintendo related, we decided to post all the Nintendo related cosplays (and shenanigans) we found at PAX.

Since our campaign is Nintendo-related, we decided to upload all the Nintendo-related cosplays (and shenanigans) we found at PAX to our Facebook page.  You can check out the album here.

 For those new to Operation: Power Up, we’re a group of dedicated fans persuading Nintendo of America to bring back Nintendo Power as a digital publication and/or a website. With fan publications such as Pure Nintendo, Nintendo Force, there’s still a market for a dedicated Nintendo publication. Our mission is simple: we want to get back the Power. Nintendo Power (and ONM too)!

See you next mission!
