Opening of the second Nintendo store in Japan
Nintendo has a new store in Osaka next year.
Nintendo has just announced its intention to open its second real store in Japan. Nintendo Osaka will open in 2022 at the Daimaru Umeda store in Osaka.
Nintendo’s first store opened in Shibuya, Tokyo in November 2019 and quickly became a popular designation, resulting in some pretty huge wait times. Those wait times eventually eased with the pandemic forcing the store to close, but it’s open again now and you can expect the store to be hit between noon and 4 p.m. local time, according to Google.
Regarding the new store, Nintendo has not provided any details on its location in Osaka other than a general timeline. According to Japan.com, the Daimaru Umeda department store is a “downtown department store specializing in luxury brands,” including names like Prada, Jimmy Choo and Gucci.
If we had to guess, it will have the same kind of Nintendo kitsch that you can already order online, but it will be in a cute store with a large Mario statue in the center.
