Nintendo Hosting Phantom Hourglass Launch Party This Sunday


This Sunday, September 30th from 1 – 4 PM at the Nintendo World Store in NYC, Nintendo will be hosting a launch shindig in celebration of the new release of The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for the DS. While Phantom Hourglass doesn’t officially ship out to nationwide retail until Monday, copies will be going on sale a day early at the launch party for a limited period of two hours (between 2 and 4 PM). Beyond getting an early chance to pick up the game, attendees will also be able to partake in a variety of other fun Zelda-themed activities, from getting pictures taken with Link and dressing up as favorite Zelda characters for a special costume contest to proving one’s Zelda knowledge in trivia quizzes and competing for prizes in a live multiplayer tournament. If you happen to attend, drop in and let us know how the party went.
