Attention Christmas shoppers: Tokyo is getting its own official Nintendo store at the end of November. It's also the first-ever Nintendo store in Japan, located inside the highly anticipated, brand new Shibuya Parco shopping complex, which will open on November 22. The store's official name is 'Nintendo Tokyo'; it's on the sixth floor, next to an all-new Pokémon Center and other game/anime-related stores.

Aside from interactive demo stations, obviously, the shop will carry an extensive line of exclusive game and character merchandise. So expect to see tons of goods featuring iconic Nintendo characters including Mario, Link from Legend of Zelda, Shizue and Murabi from Animal Crossing, and many more.

For eager shoppers, Nintendo Tokyo is hosting a pre-opening special on November 20 and 21, in which 500 lucky shoppers (250 a day) can visit the store before it officially opens to the public.
