Nintendo and Bethesda are returning for PAX Aus 2023! PAX Aus announced this momentous occasion in the lead up to the convention’s 10th anniversary.
If there was one shortfall of PAX Aus 2022 it was the lack of AAA developers. That gave the indie developers present more space to be seen, but the lack of big studios was noticed.
