March 3, 2012 § Leave a comment
Throughout the month of March, Nintendo will be hosting Uprising multiplayer tournaments at select GameStop stores in the United States.
To prepare fans for the March 23 launch of Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo of America will host multiplayer tournaments at select GameStop stores across the United States starting March 8 and culminating in a national championship event in New York on Thursday, March 22. Three winners from each market will participate in the final round. The final national championship event at the GameStop store at Broadway and 84th Street in New York will also feature a special pre-sale opportunity, allowing consumers to purchase the game one day before it goes on sale throughout North America.
Here are the locations:
San Francisco (March 8)
Orlando, FL (March 11)
Los Angeles (March 15)
New York (March 22)
We don’t know which specific GameStop stores in those cities will be hosting the tournaments, aside from the New York store, but if you live near any of those areas, feel free to do some research.
