Goodnight, sweet prince
It’s the end of an era for Nintendo fans in Australia. Without any rhyme, reason, or explanation, the The Nintendo Experience within EB Games Swanston Street in Victoria has been closed down.
Nintendo Australia didn’t make any mention of the location closing. Those heading to the EB Games location will see that the upstairs Nintendo Experience portion is roped off, with the lights turned off and stock completely removed.
This location served as the place to go for Nintendo launches in Australia. Nintendo hosted launch events, parties, and other official events at the Nintendo Experience, which makes it all the more sad to see it go.
Hopefully Nintendo has other plans for Australia, and we’ll see an even better event space open in the near future.
