Operation Power-Up | PAX South

NOTE: This article is from the oprainfall Campaign Hub, written by an independent campaign, and hosted on the oprainfall website. The opinions herein may not represent the opinions of oprainfall.

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 them by now.
3. Check out the Nintendo booth.
4. Find Nintendo cosplayers to fill up this post.

At PAX South, Nintendo was promoting the upcoming The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and the New Nintendo 3DS.

Here’s some pics we took of the Nintendo booth.

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.

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 and 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!
