Alright folks! As I promised in yesterday’s video, here are the complete details for Nintendo of Canada’s Nintendo 3DS launch events, happening next week.
The Toronto launch party will be held at Dundas Square in downtown Toronto from 6:00 p.m. until midnight, at which point the 3DS will be available for purchase. Since the event is being held in the Square itself, the event is tied to the Future Shop located across the street, which will be open for the midnight launch. Virgin Radio will also be on site, giving away a 3DS system each hour, on the hour (you have to enter on site to win). A launch party will also be happening at Vancouver’s TD Square, at the corner of Granville St. and Georgia St., with a midnight launch at the Future Shop on Robson (a block away).
Both events will features a number of kiosks where you can try our Face Raiders, Pilotwings Resorts, Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition and other games. Nintendo will also be giving away a limited supply of Nintendo 3DS toques and t-shirts, so at least there’s one other reason to show up early/punctually to the Vancouver event.
