Considering ‘Donkey Kong’ came out nearly 40 years ago, it’s about time Japan finally got its own official Nintendo store. Located on Shibuya Parco’s Cyberspace floor, which is dedicated to otaku geeks, this outlet has everything a Nintendo fanboy or girl could ever dream of. Aside from the latest and most popular games, Nintendo Tokyo also offers a selection of merchandise you cannot find anywhere else.
The home-quarantine era’s hit game ‘Animal Crossing’ has inspired loads of merch including tumblers, bento boxes and even pajamas. And you can only buy them here, along with clothing and everyday items featuring mustachioed mascot Mario, Princess Zelda, the aforementioned gorilla and other much-loved Nintendo characters. The gaming corner, meanwhile, is fitted with TVs and consoles for you to test out the latest titles.
