Nintendo of Canada Calls November 21st Nintendo Day!

nintendo_logo_by_thedrifterwithin-d5kzl78_690x431

Nintendo Day 2014 is appropriately named. For Nintendo of Canada fans, November 21st isn’t just a chance to play some of the latest Nintendo games and the yet to be released Amiibo figures at multiple events across the country, but it is also the same day that Amiibo, Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and Super Smash Bros Wii U hits retail and the Nintendo eShop.

While I cannot speak for other countries, Nintendo of Canada has upped their efforts in 2014 to provide Nintendo fans the ultimate experience and hands on time with some of Nintendo’s biggest titles. These events have been hitting retailers across the country, in multiple locations. Nintendo Day will be no different.

Nintendo of Canada’s (new) general manager and senior director had this to say about the event: “Nintendo Day marks one of the single biggest days in our company’s long history. Not only are we launching some of our biggest titles in portable and console gaming, we are also releasing Amiibo which are poised to redefine the gaming experience for Nintendo enthusiasts. “Nintendo Day, and all the activities leading up to it, is our approach to show appreciation of our fans and a way to celebrate these milestones with them.”

Also launching on the 21st is the GameCube controller adapter for Wii U which will allow Smash Bros players to use old (or new, yet to be released) GameCube controllers or Wave Bird controllers.

Below is further details from the Nintendo of Canada website on a number of events leading up to November 21st. Remember to follow me on twitter (@adamroffel) for updates on Pokemon, Smash Bros, and other Nintendo related titles and news.
