Are you interested in meeting the creator of Super Mario, Link, and Donkey Kong? Nintendo fans who make the trek to the Nintendo World Store in New York City this weekend just may get a chance to engage in Nintendogs's "Bark Mode" with Nintendo's own Shigeru Miyamoto. He'll be at the store to sign autographs and meet fans this weekend as part of the Nintendogs Doggy Fashion Show.
On Sunday, September 25th, Shigeru Miyamoto, the world famous game designer from Nintendo (Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, etc.) will be visiting the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 pm to sign autographs and help continue the amazing momentum for his latest creation, Nintendogs. The first 200 people in line are guaranteed to get an autograph. The first 10 people in line with a DS and Nintendogs game will get a chance to do “Bark Mode” with Mr. Miyamoto.
There will also be some prize giveaways related to the Nintendo DS and Nintendogs, such as a DS skin that comes complete with Miyamoto's printed signature. These skins were given away to the press back at E3, and let me assure you that they turn heads when playing against those who do not have a living legend's signature printed on their DS.
Other events this weekend include a Saturday doggy fashion show sponsored by the ASPCA featuring canine clothing designer Little Lily at Riverside Park.
For more information regarding event dates and times, give the store a call at (646) 459-0800. Nintendo has asked that people do not call the store for event information. The full schedule for both the fashion show and the meeting with Miyamoto is below.
