In addition to the concerts, the Nintendo World store in New York City’s Rockerfeller Plaza is hosting a series of events on Friday September 14th from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (Eastern Time). Fans will be able to take part in an ocarina workshop and have their photo taken with Link cosplay model Li Kovacs. The first people through the door will also receive a free goodie bag full of Symphony of the Goddesses merchandise, so get their early!
