It was so great to see all these old games and game consoles. Almost traveled back in time. A must see place for all.

If you have grown up playing the SNES, N64 and Wii then this is a must see place.

loads of little gifts here to take back from here and some funny items. there is an area upstairs to play games and a view of the history of the nintendo consoles.

My kids (5,10) are huge fans of Mario, and they just LOVED this store. They enjoyed trying all the newest wii games and merchandise at the store, and said it was their no.1 place in our whole US trip ;-)

A very nice venue, great location and friendly staff. You have a full on shop with the Nintendo name. Go forth and Conquer. You also have a corner of the store show-casing the history of Nintendo products - great for a few minutes through memory lane.

The store itself is a great icon for the company. As far as merchandise goes there seems to be a little lack of things that could make this location and company unique. Most of the stock can be found in smaller stores scattered throughout the country. I would have loved to see something more than a few t-shirts that show off the fact that one has been to the Nintendo World in New York.

The store seemed a bit empty, so much floor space opened with the top floor feeling like a floor of games and the bottom floor being overrun by pokemon. I see a lot of potential here.

If not for retail than to reflect on the history of Nintendo within the confines of America.

It's a great store but things can be improved to make it better.

I did buy a hat, a keychain, and a plush Chomp. ^_^

My kids wanted to go there. So we went and they had a ball. It was good to see all the old game consoles they had. And telling the kids we had that machine and that one,lol. But how games have changed over the years
