“I hope I can see many of you this weekend at the Nintendo World Store, at New York Comic-Con, and at our following meet up the week after so I can exchange Friend Codes so we may all water each others gardens in the Dream World”, said Matthew Rodriguez, Founder and Leader of the Pokemon DS NYC fan club.
“We are extra excited to team up with such a fantastic enthusiast club such as Pokemon DS NYC to see the launch of Pokemon Black and White Version 2 and the Pokemon Dream Radar on the Nintnedo eShop”, said Jordan White, Founder of Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. “We have some serious hardcore Pokefanatics in our group who can’t wait for the new games including Victor Martinez who as of Thursday, October 4th has a tent outside of the Nintendo World Store and is the first in line to buy the copy of the game!”
On Saturday October 6th at the Nintendo World Store from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, Pokemon fans of all ages can gather for a chance to be among the first in the nation to purchase the games in advance of their October 7th release. Additionally, the first 1,000 people in line to purchase either game will receive a unique Pokémon scarf and all attendees will have the opportunity to take photos with costumed characters of Pokémon Snivy, Tepig and Oshawott.
Immediately after the official Nintendo World Store event from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, Pokemon DS NYC will host a Pokemon Trivia Competition at the public assembly event space adjacent to the Nintendo World Store. In case of bad weather such as rain, the event will be moved to the underground Rockefeller Center Concourse directly below the Nintendo World Store. At 3:00 PM sharp, all contestants that sign up will be put through a grueling list of questions that will put any hardcore Pokemon fan through their paces.
The top three winners will win Gold (1st Place), Silver (2nd Place) and Bronze (3rd Place) Victory Medals with Black and White ribbons provided by StreetPass NYC.
Further partnership with Pokemon DS NYC, The Pokemon Company and Nintendo of America for the upcoming New York Comic-Con will be announced as well as a full schedule of activities during the convention at a later date post launch.
