Hey! If you’re in the NYC area on Saturday, September 5, 2009, why not make the most of it and boogie on down, up, sideways or however else you can over to the Nintendo World Store located in Rockefeller Plaza (which is near Rockefeller Center, by the way).

Why? Well, it’s the Muramasa: the Demon Blade Release Par-tay, that’s why! Details below the jump…



Who: Ignition Entertainment is partnering with the Nintendo World Store in New York City, to host the must-attend exclusive release party for one of 2009’s most anticipated video games – MURAMASA: THE DEMON BLADE.


What: Open to the public, the Nintendo World Store located at 10 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City will have its interior completely redesigned to look like feudal Japan in celebration of the release of Muramasa: The Demon Blade exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.
