Nintendo is opening an official pop-up store in Singapore for the first time this November
In a surprising (and unexpected) move that marks the gaming giant’s foray into Southeast Asia,Nintendois set to open apop-up store in Singapore. Operated byAvexAsia, the store will be located atJewel atChangiAirportand for a limited period – from Nov 17 2023 to Jan 1 2024. This store aims to give local fans a taste of merchandise that was previously exclusive to Japan.
While Nintendo has built an international reputation for iconic games and franchises, its merchandise has often been a lot harder to come by, especially in Southeast Asia. Until now, to get your hands on original Nintendo merchandise, you'd probably have had to book a flight to Nintendo stores in Tokyo, Osaka, or Kyoto. But this pop-up event changes the game. It will feature a range of products inspired by some of Nintendo’s most beloved franchises, such asSuper Mario,Animal Crossing,The Legend of Zelda,Splatoon, andPikmin.
Products that will be available at the pop-up
Naturally, the store will also offer something extra to shoppers: six types of exclusively designed postcards. In order to claim one, customers will need to spend at least S$80 in a single transaction, while stocks last. Personally, it may not seem much but I reckon many fans will want a keepsake that's unique to the Singapore pop-up store.
Gamers with a Nintendo Account can also check in at the venue to collect special stickers that commemorate the event. Each person can check in once per day, and will be given one of 18 sticker designs, issued at random.
If you want to check it out for yourself, more details are available on theofficial Nintendo Singapore pop-up store website. Given that it's for a limited period, the anticipation and exclusivity surrounding the event are palpable.
