StreetPass NYC, a popular grassroots Nintendo 3DS fan club in New York City, invites all Nintendo fans in the New York Metro Area to celebrate the release of Fire Emblem: Awakening exclusive to Nintendo 3DS via three events over the course of the first week of February.

“We have dubbed the time between February 4th and February 9th ‘Fire Emblem: Awakening Week’ to celebrate the new release” says Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. “We have huge Fire Emblem fans who over the years felt the franchise they love so dear was left out between all the Mario and Kirby releases. So we are super excited that Nintendo of America is giving this game all the attention that this long lasting franchise deserves and so will we!”

The first event will begin on Launch Day, Monday, February 4th. StreetPass NYC invites all fans to come down to the Nintendo World Store (10 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, New York 10020) and purchase the new entry in the world renowned Strategy JRPG series. Afterwards, please join us from 5:00pm to 8:00pm inside the The Concourse Plaza located in Rockefeller Center directly below the Nintendo World store (enter directly behind the store in the Event Plaza area) where fans will be celebrating the series with two planned activities. The first of which will be a Fire Emblem Trivia Contest where the first place winner will receive a $20 Nintendo eShop Card to spend on future Fire Emblem DLC and/or other amazing titles provided on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. StreetPass NYC will also bring out select fans to be interviewed on YouTube to express their feelings about the new entry into the series and we encourage people to bring Fire Emblem memorabilia to be shown to the world.

For those who would like to be part of that video but will be unable to make it or StreetPass Fans who are not located in the New York Metro Area, StreetPass NYC will be hosting a special Google+ Hangout Chat that will be broadcasted LIVE over the internet and saved onto YouTube. On Wednesday, February 6th starting at 8:00pm; fans will be talking about Fire Emblem: Awakening, playing online multiplayer Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games and talking about upcoming Nintendo news. To enter, one simply has to add the StreetPass NYC Google+ Page ( ) to their own circles. On a first come, first serve basis (space is limited), one simply needs to accept the invite at 8:00pm to join the conversation.

Finally, Starting February 8th and continuing each Friday in February, StreetPass NYC welcomes all to a very special Nintendo World store event between 6:00pm and 8:00pm where we celebrate the first series of February Fire Emblem: Awakening Double Duals. Bring your Nintendo 3DS and your copy of Fire Emblem: Awakening to earn Renown points, unlocking new in-game weapons and items to help you in your quest.
