Nintendo’s secret New York party!

Above: 8am the next morning they’re all still there, anxiously hoping to grab...

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

    That's me in the Chibi-Robo Costume. I MADE IT ONTO THE FRONT PAGE OF GAMESRADAR! W00T! And the gift bags had a copy of Nintendo Power, Mushroom Men & MySims Kingdom trading cards, a "Tales of the Mushroom Men" booklet, a mushroom filled with candy, and a DS kit with two stylus's, a cleaning cloth, and what might be a sticker (I haven't opened it ).

    Woo. Scrolling up and down on those Nintendo POwer stairs at the end there is a doozy.
