StreetPass NYC, a popular grassroots Nintendo 3DS fan club in New York City, invites all Nintendo fans in the New York Metro Area to unofficially celebrate the death of Nintendo Power and it's 24 year legacy on December 11th from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
"Even with the decline of print media we like many Nintendo fans are deeply sadden by the cancellation of the magazine we have all farmed for cheats and sent in crazy artwork too" says Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. "We want to honor the magazine's outstanding legacy and thanking the authors and editors month after month of entertainment and free swag through our childhoods."
Fans will mainly hang around the Nintendo Power museum at the Nintendo World store on the second floor next to the elevator. StreetPass NYC highly suggests to spread out if the group becomes too big to avoid violating building file codes and to please not disturbed customers who are shopping inside of the store.
Please bring your issues of Nintendo Power and/or any collectible freebies you ever recived from the magazine's 24 print run that you want to show off. StreetPass NYC will look out for the coolest collections to show off on their YouTube channel and will invite people outside to be interviewed on their memories of Nintendo Power.
StreetPass NYC also suggest (but not enforces) a dress code of either all black and/or your most Nintendo related clothing and accessories to wear at the event. The group also hopes to chat with a virtual Mario provided by the store, a group photo of attendees by 6:50 PM and perhaps other surprises as the day goes on. Fans can RSVP on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/events/278873692233899/
