|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.|
