* Nintendo Store to become reality

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
It may sound like pushing their luck, but Reuters reports that Nintendo is planning to open their first "World Store" in New York.

The store will take over the space that housed Nintendo's Pokemon Center in Manhattan's Rockefeller Center, the company said in a statement.

A Nintendo spokesman said the new store was under construction and more details on it would be disclosed in about two weeks.

"Visitors will enjoy two floors of all things Nintendo, such as games, merchandise, accessories, DVDs and trading cards for the wildly popular Pokemon franchise," the statement said.
Now, to some extent, the presence of a "world store" can be a good thing. They can use it as a venue for new product launches and a showroom for existing and new products - sort of a year-round version of what their E3 booth may look like.

But other than that, if they think the store itself is going to make tons of money, they're probably kidding themselves.
