The NYC trip and the Nintendo World Store!

We spent this past week in NYC on vacation and while there we attended the Macy’s Day Parade as it was the main reason for the trip (my daughter participated). While there we managed to make several trips (more like 5) to the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center, over the course of the visits we picked up numerous items especially on Black Friday when the store was having a blow out on third party WiiU games with many games being $5 to $10 dollars each.

Sadly there wasn’t much in the way of game related balloons in this years parade, for example Sonic the Hedgehog made an appearance last year but not this year for some reason.. we got Pikachu which seems to be the case every year in recent memory as well as Eruptor from Skylanders.

My son gets the Tanooki suit Mario, my wife loves Koopa Troopas so that is hers, and I get the others. I wish they had a blue Yoshi but sadly the only color variation in stock was yellow Yoshi so I defaulted to that.

And of course the bags, what can I say… just look at that artwork.  🙂

 

And on to the games themselves!

ZombieU was only $10.00 and the Prima guide came with it free, what an unbeatable price! Assassins Creed III was also $10.00.

Tekken Tag Tournament $5.00, Just Dance 4 $10.00, Epic Mickey 2 $5.00!

 

And of course some pictures of the Nintendo World Store, my apologies for the quality, the place was pretty much packed the entire week so it was hard to get a good picture between people browsing and taking pictures of their own.
