Hope you came early!

With the launch of the Wii U within spitting distance, NWR's Ariel Ruff (along with more than a few other people) headed to the Nintendo World Store in New York City. Here's a glimpse of what he's seen:

6 years ago I was part of a similar madness. Looks like a lot of fun.

6 years ago I was helping coordinate the madness at that same location :D Best experience of my life.

I went out to Walmart at midnight and bought Mario.  I didn't want to have to deal with it tomorrow when I pick up my preorder at Best Buy.  One guy ahead of me was able to snag a Deluxe without a preorder, and I think another guy in line caught a white version just by chance, but after that, the guy said every other system was claimed.  There wasn't a big line, though it's just a 24 hour store and they weren't specifically doing a big midnight thing.

But, I have my first Wii U game in the house!  :cool;

Curious as to how may lined up?

I'm curious about the line at NWS too, back in 2006 it wrapped almost around the entire block, like down to Radio city Music Hall.. crazy.

I'm kinda glad I didn't go, I would of loved to of contributed to the site but if the line was anywhere as big as it was for the 2006 launch, I would of gave up (because I wouldn't be buying a system anyway).

Whoa! That's really awesome! When was this?

BlackNMild2k1November 18, 2012

I just saw the pics pop up yesterday, so I would assume it happened yesterday...?

But really, I'm not sure. There are a few more photos in that set too.
(The Mii's are like 7 feet tall and make regular people look tiny by comparison)

I believe those were taken on Friday.

Though if they wanted to represent what Miis people actually made it'd be a wall of Peter Griffin, Darth Vader and Hitler.

Nintendo needs to sell me a mii mask, or at the very least let me customize my likeness onto a mii plush pillow.. :D

All the black mii's look alike....

So do all the white ones, and all the asian ones. In the second photo there's 14 faces but only 4 different ones.
