Pokémon Rumble Blast Event This Weekend in NYC

on October 21, 2011 4:30 PM

This Sunday, October 23rd, the Nintendo World Store in New York City will be holding a Pokémon Rumble Blast event from 11am to 6pm. In other words, the event will be taking place all day! The game releases for the Nintendo 3DS on October 24th, so fans who show up to this event get to buy the game a whole day earlier than everyone else. Take that, every other city besides New York City!

Fans will also get to take pictures with Pikachu throughout the day, take on a scavenger hunt challenge, take home some giveaways, and receive AR markers for their Pokédex 3D. Also expect to see cosplayers, and, of course, be ready to battle fellow Pokémon players as they wield their DS’s and games.

For more details, head on over to the brand new Nintendo World Store website, which has taken on a completely new look.
