Best Buy to host official Nintendo 3DS midnight launch event

Ahead of the Nintendo 3DS going on sale across the United States on March 27th, Nintendo of America have detailed plans for the official Nintendo 3DS launch event.

Set to be held at the Best Buy store in Union Square in New York City, the launch event will kick off at 9pm Eastern time on March 26th. Fans can expect to be able to get a hands-on with Nintendo 3DS demos, alongside food, music and giveaways all leading up to a countdown to midnight when the handheld system goes on sale.

For those who can’t make it to New York, additional midnight launch events are due to be held at several Best Buy stores throughout the country for which you can visit for more information.

“Nintendo 3DS can play 3D video games and take 3D pictures, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg,” commented Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “The 3D display is amazing in its own right, but just as compelling are the new forms of game play it delivers, and the groundbreaking ways it will connect players to new content … and each other.”
