Big plans for NYCC

Nintendo has big plays for this month’s New York Comic-Con. On top of bringing a bunch of Wii U and 3DS titles, they’ll also have the new 2DS system to show off as well as a speaking session of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds producer Eiji Aonuma.

They’re even setting up a branch of the Nintendo World store there to sell their wares. Any purchase will come with a 2DS carrying case as a free gift.

Aonuma will speak on Wind Waker HD and the upcoming A Link Between Worlds on October 11 at 2:45 p.m. in room 1A06.
