  • As nintendero I am a wonder, desire to visit shop had after the videos I saw on YouTube before the trip. The store is cool with correct price where to buy 2 t-shirts for $ 20 each. Exposures that are cool and if you know the company you liked to meet with all the details and objects that offers. Attention very good, hope to return some day.

  • A must stop-by for Nintendo lovers. This is the flagship store and it had been newly renovated. It includes all the latest games and even demo offerings. There's quite a lot of clothing and other memorabilia for sale so you can find the perfect item for your home or wardrobe. In addition check out the ever rotating displays aside from the little Nintendo museum offerings celebrating all things Nintendo. They also have launch days for games and it is quite an event for each game when they have people line up hours ahead of time for launch.
  • Nintendo NY is a geek haven. You can demo games, check out special exhibitions and get all your Nintendo related swag here. They have special gaming events every once in a while that has fans lining up around the block. The staff here is excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The recent top to bottom renovation brought some fantastic upgrades, the most impressive being the giant screen in the second floor gaming area. Definitely a fun spot to check out whether you live here in NYC or you're visiting from out of town.
  • Love this place. If you are a big Nitendo fun, you gonna love this place. Staff there was very friendly. The price there was pretty standard. However, if you wanna meet new people and find new game buddy. It's a good place.
  • Think ToysRus, but for Nintendo products. Fun place, but I wouldn't travel out of my way just to see it. Definitely stop by if you're a Nintendo fan and in the area though. It's nice that Nintendo has an established physical building too, but if you're going there expecting to find rare Nintendo products you are in for a huge bummer. I went in there looking to see if I could find a cheap trinket, however the cheapest thing in there is probably over 10 dollars. Most of their official products can even be found on their website at a much more reasonable price, And I would recommend shopping there, and coming to the store just for fun because it does have other cool things like a display of old consoles, and even one that survived the gulf war.
  • Nice presentation of games on both the 3DS and the WiiU. Also awesome tshirts of both old and new Nintendo games and some toys! My son loved it.
