With its recent release of the wildly successful Nintendo Switch console (not to mention the re-release of the original 80s NES and 90s SNES as “minis”), Nintendo continues to race along the cutting-edge of the gaming industry. If you’ve come to New York with kids in tow, or if you’re one of the millions of lucky adults who are themselves just kids-at-heart, then the Nintendo NY store is the perfect place to spend an afternoon reminiscing, browsing, and playing. Hailed as NYC’s own “War Pipe into the Mushroom Kingdom,” this 10,000-square-foot, two-story shop stocks all the most sought after memorabilia, consoles, and games, including the latest releases for the Switch and 3DS line, many of which are available for customers to try out in store. Best of all, Nintendo NY is conveniently located just five minutes by foot from the Lotte New York Palace Hotel in historic Rockefeller Center, making it the ideal destination for an afternoon stroll.
