The first place we were taken was what I would call the
Nintendo History, Nintendo Store, and Merchandise area.
Personally, my main attraction was the infamous Nintendo Store where they
sell games, shirts, and all kinds of Nintendo merchandise.
Since it was after 5pm, it was closed, but Nintendo allowed us to come
back the next day, which I’ll get to later.
Sorry Folks, Park's closed. Moose
outside shoulda told ya.
Any fan of Nintendo would absolutely freak out when seeing
all the stuff they had upstairs. I
honestly could have easily camped out here for a couple days.
On the left there is history row, where you see Nintendo’s humble
beginnings as a playing card manufacturer, all the way up until GameCube.
Seeing all this hardware in one room was rather overwhelming.
I don’t think I said a word. I
was pretty much in awe of seeing stuff I’ve only seen in pictures.
One piece of hardware that was missing from the history area was the
64DD, but almost everything and anything Nintendo made was in that room.
It's hard not to smile here.
