Mar. 7, 2013 – 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 a very special Fire Emblem Friday on March 8th starting from 6:00 PM and ending at 8:00 PM.

“So far we have been attending along with other Nintendo fans the fantastically executed Fire Emblem Fridays done by the Nintendo World Store Staff to celebrate Fire Emblem: Awakening (exclusive to Nintendo 3DS) for the past couple of weeks since the game’s launch”, said Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. “They have been going on very well but on the last jam-packed one staff announced to the fans that March 8th will be the last Fire Emblem Friday and they want to end it with a bang!”

“We urge any and all fans of the award wining Fire Emblem video game franchise by Nintendo to come out and show the game it’s final support,” exclaimed Geoffrey Kappenberg, StreetPass NYC Ambassador and local New York Fire Emblem aficionado.

Attendees of the event will open a world of opportunity by bringing their system and a copy of the game to Streetpass with other players on March 8th, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Learn how you can purchase their items, face off against an AI version of their army, or recruit their leader. Join us and the Nintendo World staff and refine your battle strategies while discovering new ways to increase your renown.

Participants who play the game at this special event can also sign up for a chance to receive the Fire Emblem Awakening art book, while supplies last during event hours. For the last event, an extra special item will be raffled off as a prize, no Fire Emblem fan will want to miss this!

If you’ve never experienced Fire Emblem, we welcome you to join us for a hands on demonstration with the new game by the Nintendo World staff! For more information, please visit
