Triple launch at Nintendo World in New York a success

20 hours ago

On November 21, 2014, Nintendo launched three major titles to the masses — Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. They are the undisputed top holiday games for Nintendo and Wii U and they released simultaneously when the clock struck midnight — except for at Nintendo World Store in New York City. Releasing at 9pm the day before, fans who passionately waited (some as long as 48 hours in the frigid cold) for the games’ launch were getting the game hours early and treated to some swag, too.

Nintendo’s push for these titles will also be met by a whole 24-hour opening of the store so fans and loyal gamers can come in at any time to pick up their games. I’ve heard of 2am Taco Bell runs, but Smash Bros. runs? Sounds equally as delicious to me. Check out some of the photos below.

Mick Foley: Oh man, any documentary is a labor of love and you set out with realistic goals to make a really good movie that you hope people will eventually find. I really enjoyed being a part of it not only on screen, but also behind the scenes helping to shape it. »

19 November 2014 4:38 PM, PST

The last Smash Bros. console iteration was released over 6 years ago and the gap before that was 7 years. That’s okay though, because it makes this gathering of the iconic and memorable characters all the more special each time it happens. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U arrives in a context that is in stark contrast compared to 2008′s Brawl release. Nintendo’s latest and first ever HD machine is struggling and the company has to prove the system’s worth with titles two years into the Wii U’s life cycle that could make or break the console’s success. A lot of pressure has been put on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and it needs to be absolutely stellar to meet the expectations both Nintendo and fans have put on it.

Smash Bros. is an atypical fighting game where bouts between characters are based on whether one »
