Nintendo Shibuya: Nintendo’s First Official Store to Open in Fall 2019!
Last updated: 13 February 2019
People everywhere are already buzzing about Tokyo - Japan's set to host the Rugby World Cup this autumn and the Olympic and Paralympic Games next year. And now Nintendo quietly dropped word that it'll be opening its first official store in Shibuya this fall!
As if we needed another reason to visit Tokyo this year!
If you like Japanese culture as much as we do, you've probably already lined up your list of things to do in Tokyo - like hitting up the biggest Pokémon Center in all of Japan before checking out Akihabara's many retro game centers, then maybe head over to Animate and check out titles and merch before before finishing up in Shibuya just to watch people at the world's busiest pedestrian crossing and relish being in the center of it all - Japan's (and the world's) vanguard for trends.
And now you'll want to be adding Nintendo TOKYO to your list. Announced on February 1, Nintendo’s "first official store to be directly managed by Nintendo in Japan" is set to open in autumn 2019 and located in the Shibuya Parco building.
According to Nintendo, the space will not only retail the latest games and merch, but will be an experience in and of itself. "In addition to selling products such as video game systems, software and character-based merchandise, we plan to host events and offer opportunities to play games at Nintendo TOKYO. We are preparing to make this store, which will be a new base for communicating Nintendo information in Japan, an enjoyable place for a wide range of consumers."
Autumn can't come quickly enough!
