Nintendo of Australia
has announced that they will open a special Nintendo gaming area above the EBGames store on Swanston Street in Melbourne, Australia on December 6. The opening of the "Nintendo Experience" won't just be a chance for people to come hang out at EB and annoy the staff, however -- Nintendo is throwing a launch event starting at 10 AM, and some kind of VIP event the night before.
The announcement hints
at appearances by Nintendo characters at the morning event, so maybe you can finally get that "guy in a Pikachu suit" autograph. More exciting is the fact that the first 100 to go in will receive a free game
, effectively avoiding prohibitive Australian game prices. Consoles will be given away at the event as well!
