The geek-fest that is San Diego Comic-Con has officially begun, and though most of the show will be dedicated to comic books, toys, movies and TV, video games have been steadily making their presence known over the past few years. This time around Nintendo's booth (#5135) will be largely dedicated to showing off the upcoming 3DS XL, but that's not all Nintendo has in store for San Diego.
In addition to their booth, Nintendo has planned several activities that will take place at the “Nintendo Gaming Lounge” in the San Diego Ballroom at the Marriot Marquis & Marina. Surprisingly that gaming lounge will not feature the Wii U, however, there will be loads of games to play for 3DS and the original Wii, and the best part is you don't even need a SDCC 2012 badge to get in!
