Take a Tour of the New Nintendo NY Store before It Opens to the Public

Meet Mario and Check Out the Newly Remodeled

–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nintendo:



Mario himself invites you to an exclusive tour of the remodeled
Nintendo NY store in Rockefeller Plaza, as well as a private
ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the new space. On Feb. 19, the
Nintendo NY store is scheduled to open its doors with a new look and
a new feel. The powered-up overhaul will include an updated interior
design, new Wii U and Nintendo 3DS demo units, a 15-foot gaming
screen and more fun elements and surprises. In addition, a large
bronze coin installed at the store entrance will display the store’s
tagline: “Where everyone comes to play.”
The store is scheduled to open to the public at noon on Feb. 19, but
by attending this exclusive event, you can get an early sneak peek
of the new space from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
After Mario invites you inside the store, the Mushroom Kingdom star
will be available for photos (and maybe the occasional hug or two).
Once the tour begins, you’ll also have the opportunity to interview
Nintendo executives and staff of the Nintendo NY store.
When the store opens to the public at noon, there will be a series
of activities, including giveaways, like exclusive Splatoon art
created by the developers of the hit game (while supplies last), and
appearances by costumed characters like Mario and Luigi. The store
will also sell exclusive souvenirs that can only be purchased that
weekend, including a limited-edition T-shirt featuring Mario or
Link. Fans who want to try out some of Nintendo’s latest games are
in luck, as new and upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games will be
available to play.

If interested in attending the early media event from 9 a.m. to
10 a.m., RSVP to one of the contacts listed below.
