Nintendo is heading to New York this weekend to celebrate the launch of the first gaming-dedicated, glasses-less 3D handheld device, the Nintendo 3DS. The extravaganza will take place at noon at Union Square Park, with giveaways, live music from the HOTcakes, and a special appearance by Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. At 9pm customers can line up at the Best Buy at Union Square to be the first in line to purchase the 3DS, with the first 300 lucky buyers getting a free carrying case.
It’s an exciting time for Nintendo and the industry in general. If you’re in the New York area, this is definitely worth checking out.
