NYCC: Nintendo Has A Lineup Full of Fun

New York Comic Con is more than just comics. It’s movies, it’s geekery, it’s gaming too. Nintendo is striving to make sure that the latter is a treasure trove for the con’s attendees. From October 11th to October 14th, fans are encouraged to visit the Nintendo booth (#1510) at the Javits Center to play games and enjoy giveaways such as special Paper Mario: Sticker Star stickers (while supplies last). If you collect all four exclusive stickers, you will then be eligible to receive a special bonus sticker!

That’s not all! The first 400 fans who collect the special fifth sticker will receive a giant sticker that can be attached to a massive, community-created Paper Mario: Sticker Star billboard. Keep an eye on the signs at the Nintendo booth to know when each sticker becomes available. Also, Paper Mario fans who really love the stickers can volunteer to be “sticker-bombed” at a station outside the Javits Center and be covered in as many Paper Mario: Sticker Star stickers as possible.

Visitors to Nintendo’s main booth (#1510) will be able to sample the awesome lineup of Nintendo games coming this holiday season for Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo DS.
