Nintendo’s secret New York party!

Above: One of the many gift bags Future dished out for the first several hundred visitors

Above: The sad thing is, we saw this Pit when we came it at 8, and then again during this photo op around 10:15

Above: The line stretched down the street and around the block... for hours

Above: Luigi, Captain Falcon, Mario and Link cosplayers pose for several cameras. The Falcon costume was actually pretty sweet

Above: Two personal firsts – I’ve never seen a Zero Suit Samus or Chibi Robo costume

Above: Another scouring of the line revealed the MySims Kingdom mascot hangin’ with the locals
