Fun Day at Kid Icarus Best Buy Event

We attended a Kid Icarus Uprising Gameplay session at Best Buy yesterday and had a great time! We kinda found out about the event at the last minute, and the closest one to us was about a 2 hour drive away, but we hopped in the car and made it for the last hour of the event. Although there were not that many people at the event by the time we got there, we were happy to get the Streetpass notifications that we did receive (and believe me, since we've had a hard time running across people through Streetpass, that WAS a big deal to us), and of course a couple of sets of the Kid Icarus Uprising AR cards for our expanding collection.

Another unexpected highlight for us was getting to meet the Nintendo Rep and talk about other aspects of Nintendo. Since there were not that many people there, we asked the rep all kinds of questions about upcoming game releases, the end of Nintendo Week, Nintendo Direct, why the Wii no longer has Gamecube controller ports, the upcoming release of the Wii U, the new Spirit Camera game (which he was playing and we ended up buying a copy of) and pretty much anything else we could think of.

By the time we were done, he probably felt like he was being interviewed, LOL!!! The rep was also nice enough to give us a couple of extra items he had left over from other Nintendo events we had missed, since he was impressed that we drove a distance to attend (and that we had so many Nintendo systems and products). We're going out of town soon and there just happens to be another event near where we're going, so we plan on attending that one as well (hopefully we'll be able to get there near the beginning of the event this time and get more Streetpasses!).

I asked the rep if there were any other Kid Icarus or other Nintendo events coming up soon, and he said although the calendar on the Kid Icarus Uprising site only displayed dates up through the beginning of May, there will be other events planned in the future. Nintendo is holding these events at Best Buys and Gamestops across the country, so if you didn't get a chance to attend one yet, you may not be out of luck. All of the events are held from 1 - 4 PM on Saturdays; to see the next upcoming events for your area, view the Kid Icarus Uprising Gameplay Events Calendar.
