Nintendo NY hosting private event on Jan. 15th, 2019

What's going on at Nintendo NY on Jan. 15th, 2019? A private event has been announced for the second floor, but we don't have any details on the event itself. This has happened multiple times in the past, and sometimes we find out what the event was, and other times, no info is shared. We'll keep our ear to the ground to try and find out what's up!

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

Pretty sure it's a Nintendo Direct. They do host Direct viewing parties on a big projector/screen, which I would assume is on the second floor of the store.

On a tuesday?
But then it could also be a preview event for the press
Or a new Labo preview event for kids

Those are public
Therefore why would they close that floor to the public
If they are having Direct public viewing event.
Also they would wait until the Direct to announce that, and Directs aren't on Tuesdays. Either its a press event, for some marketing video, or most likely, just a party.

Probably some kind of shareholder/investor meeting if I had to guess. Working on more third parties maybe?

I was gonna say the same thing. Don’t get too super excited, it’s probably a business thing.

The only other thing I could guess is a taping for something that uses the store for something. January has short days, and Nintendo like to have daylight in their indoor shots.

Nintendo America has offices elsewhere that are far more fit for working with third parties or business partners, not a cramped retail space with employees who have nothing to do with that side of the business. And investors stuff would occur at NCL. Its likely a press event if it is related to the company, or they could be renting it out for a party, which they have done before.

I wouldn't get hopes up that it means anything, given one of the last times they did this it was for that Disney 3DS game where it was mainly a private event for kids and their parents. So unless some other news comes out in the meantime where it's explicitly stated Nintendo's holding a Direct soon I'm not getting hyped over this at all.

It's for my birthday party. We rented it out, like Chuck E. Cheese's. Smile

But seriously, I hope it's a Direct!

You even got a creepy robotic Mario to complete the birthday experience!

What's the current popular Disney kids show? Probably some celebrity from that…

Kingdom Hearts 3 for Switch?

Upstairs in Nintendo NYC confirmed for Smash?
