Photo Gallery: Nintendo World Store Grand Re-opening
On Sunday, Nintendo celebrated Mario’s 25th with a special event at New York’s Nintendo World Store. The store was closed for much of October for renovations, so this party both celebrated Super Mario Bros and re-introduced the new look for the store. Although Nintendo pre-announced some of the day’s activities, they held back on the two surprise guests for Mario’s cake-cutting ceremony: Reggie Fils-Aime and Shigeru Miyamoto.
I took the family and some friends along for the event, where we checked out Mario’s new decor, hob-nobbed with cosplayers and stood close but not too close to Reggie and Shiggy.
