PAX East 2023 is set to begin in just a few days! From March 23rd to the 26th, one of the biggest gaming conventions in the world will be held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts. The annual expo is a celebration of all things video games, the culture surrounding them, and the people who make them possible. It’s a great place to get a sneak peek at upcoming titles and even get your hands on a few demos.

As it turns out, PAX East is also a great place to get your hands on some unique Nintendo merch. My Nintendo will be giving away free swag to PAX East attendees, including a Tears of the Kingdom lapel pin!


This nifty accessory depicts a determined Link garbed in a flowing cloak. He seems to be casting or otherwise controlling the mysterious, green force we’ve seen in the Tears of the Kingdom trailers. PAX East attendees can get this pin, as well as 50 My Nintendo Platinum Points, at the main entrance lobby.

Nintendo is also offering a Splatoon 3 cinch bag and a set of Splatoon 3 button pins. These can be picked up by checking in at the NintendoVS Arcade and the Nintendo Free Play Area, respectively. You can find all of the details about these items at the My Nintendo website and you can learn more about PAX East here.

What do you think of these free items? Will you be attending the event? Would you buy these if they were made generally available? Let us know in the comments below!
