Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee playable first in the UK at EGX

Plus: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! Super Mario Party!

EGX 2018 - the UK's biggest games event, run by Eurogamer parent company Gamer Network - will host the first UK hands-on opportunity with Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee.

Nintendo will be at the show in force with all three of its big year-end games for Nintendo Switch: Pokémon, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Mario Party. All will be playable on the EGX 2018 show floor.

The show is once again being held at the NEC in Birmingham, this year from from the 20th to 23rd September.

Super Mario Party will be around a week away from launching when EGX 2018 takes place. Pokémon is due to launch on 16th November, while Smash Bros. is set for 7th December. If you want to try any of them before their various release dates, you know where to go.

EGX 2018 is also hosting the next Splatoon 2 UK Championship 2018 qualifier, which you'll be able to take part in if you pre-register. More details can be found on the EGX site - which is also the place to head if you still need EGX tickets.
