The Grassroots Nintendo Fan Organization, StreetPass NYC, plans yet again to have another amazing video game filled romp through New York Comic-Con once again this year. “New York Comic-Con is like Christmas to geeks all over New York City and we look forward to see how Nintendo and video gaming become bigger and better this year” said Jordan White, Founder & Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC.
StreetPass NYC members and Nintendo Fans are invited every morning of the convention (and infrequently all day) to the Nintendo Booth #1510 for amazing Nintendo 3DS games such as Crashmo, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon and Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion. Nintendo of America will also have the upcoming Wii U home video game console available for public demo with games such as The Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3 and ZombiU.
On Saturday October 13th, from 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM, StreetPass NYC welcomes all members of the press and Nintendo Cosplayers to the Nintendo Cosplay Gathering located next to the Paper Mario: Sticker Star Mosaic in the Level 2 South East Walkway at NC120. Jordan White of StreetPass NYC, will invite fans to gather and geek out over the new Nintendo hardware and software while wearing his now internet famous Tanooki Suit. Members of the press are invited to take quick group photos of all the Nintendo cosplayers at New York Comic-Con in one sitting so if you are a photographer or a reporter on video game culture make sure you do not miss out on this!
