    Nintendo have announced their plans for the PAX expo which will take place next weekend in Seattle.  Gamers who visit Nintendo’s booth at PAX will get the opportunity to play Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, GoldenEye 007 and NBA Jam.  Fluidity, a new game for WiiWare, will also make its debut at PAX.

    Nintendo’s Fluidity combines a physics engine that realistically models flowing water with puzzle game play.  Using the three forms of water – liquid, ice and cloud – players will solve challenging puzzles across multiple chapters of an illustrated magical book called Aquaticus.

    Metroid: Other M will also be a featured title at Nintendo’s booth and fans will also get a chance to view one-of-a-kind costumes and props from the new Metroid: Other M commercial.

    Finally, gamers who bring Dragon Quest IX to PAX will get the opportunity to acquire a special downloadable “Orgodemir” map via the game’s cooperative “Tag Mode” feature.  Anyone who hasn’t yet purchased the game can try it out at the Nintendo booth, and those looking to meet up with other players can do so at a special game-themed lounge in the North Lobby on level four of the PAX venue.  To receive treasure maps, players must have their Nintendo DS system running the Dragon Quest IX game and have it set to “Tag Mode”.  Once players reach the town of Stornway, they are able to access “Tag Mode” by talking to Erinn at the inn called “Quester’s Rest.”
