Today marks the end of this year’s New York Comic Con, a four-day event that housed the newest (and oldest) of your favorite nerd-centric hobbies under one roof. All mediums were represented, including TV, film, video games, books, and comics, with other areas set up for arts and crafts, panels, celebrity autographs, and vintage collectibles.
This year’s NYCC did a terrific job at getting people to attend, and fans agreed, considering three of the show’s dates sold out weeks before the event. There were panels for The Walking Dead, The Legend of Zelda, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, plenty demos of upcoming games from Nintendo, Capcom, and D3 Publisher, and booths showcasing vintage action figures from decades passed. And of course, the fans brought their best with some terrific cosplay — Link definitely seemed to be one of the most represented characters throughout the halls.
At Nintendo’s booth, games like Pokemon X/Y, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Super Mario 3D World, and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze were on-hand. For attendees that played at least two of the company’s games, they received a sweet pair of cat ears, a nod to Mario’s newest cat suit power-up. The booth even included a small pop-up shop of the Nintendo World Store, selling a selection of shirts, plushies, consoles, and software.
If you weren’t able to attend this year, don’t worry. We were on-hand, and snapped a few photos for your enjoyment. Check them out below the break!
