Newly re-branded Nintendo NY (formerly Nintendo World Store) re-opened to the public on Friday, February 19, 2016. Nintendo held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the re-branded store.
On hand were Mario and Luigi, Mr. Charles Martinet (the voice of Mario), along with Nintendo of America executives Doug Bowser, Vice President of Sales; Scott Moffitt, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing; and Rick Lessley, Vice President of the Supply Chain Group. When the doors of the remodeled store were opened to fans waiting outside, they were greeted by the renovated interior and design.
Nintendo NY even hosted some Mario Kart 8 play on the new in-store Wii U units. I am sure the fans on-hand were able to have a fantastic time.
If you are in New York, did you attend the Grand Re-Opening event? Have you ever been to this location before (or for this event)? Do you plan to visit any time soon?
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
