Nintendo World to host Diamond, Pearl launch party
New York City's Nintendo World store will host a Pokémon Diamond and Pearl launch party 1-5 p.m. April 22. Events listed at Pokémon.com include a scavenger hunt, live stage events, contests and prizes. Both games will be playable, and fans can play TCG or watch Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.
One of the mentioned prizes are exclusive Pokémon Nintendo DS Lite units. It is unclear as of yet whether this will be a new variant or one previously available in Japan.
The store, located in Rockefeller Center, opens at 9 a.m. Monday through Saturday and at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
