Description: The Nintendo 3DS is more than a portable video game system. With revolutionary concepts such as StreetPass and the Nintendo Network, it has sparked more local and global social interaction among gamers than any other portable video game device before it. With the release of Pokemon X & Pokemon Y on October 12th 2013; join some of these social groups such as StreetPass NYC, StreetPass Long Island, Pokemon DS NYC and the Official NYC Pokemon Castelia League as they show how the newest entry in the Pokemon phenomenon will bring Nintendo fans closer together around the world!
“As someone who has attended New York Comic Con since it’s inception in 2006, speaking at one of the biggest enthusiast trade and community shows for subculture entertainment has been a dream of mine forever and now I have a chance to do it with not only a topic I am passionate about but with amazing talented people such as Geoffrey Kappenberg (StreetPass NYC), Jeff Weinstein (StreetPass Long Island), Debbie Lee Gluzband (StreetPass Long Island), Matthew Rodriguez (Pokemon DS NYC) and Keith C. (Official NYC Pokemon Castelia League)”, said Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. “We are going to use this golden opportunity to cover a wide range of topics in the Nintendo community such as StreetPass groups, Pokemon X & Y, and upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. We are also going to have a large Q&A so Nintendo fans can ask their questions about the StreetPass Network and Pokemon groups. You also might even be able to win some of the goodies we will be raffling off!”
Details for the raffle giveaway during the panel as well as other Nintendo fan community-run activities at New York Comic Con will be posted at a later date.
