The toy retailer chain Toys R Us has announced they will be hosting another one of their wonderful Pokémon Trade and Collect events this Saturday from 1PM-3PM.

Pokémon Trade and Collect events are great experiences, where fellow Pokémon Trainers can meet up to compete in the Pokémon Trading Card game, trade Pokémon, and obtain exclusive prizes. The first attendees to this weekend’s event will get an exclusive Collector’s Album and a Foil Stufful Card.

All Toys R Us locations in the United States should be participating in the Pokémon Day, with the exception of outlet and express stores.  Check with your local store this week if you are unsure if they are participating in the event!

Nintendo has just announced some incredible news earlier this morning. Nintendo World Championships 2017 will take place this October in New York City!

Nintendo World Championships is Nintendo’s flagship event. Selected gamers earn a spot to compete at the main event, where those competitors will challenge each other across Nintendo’s enormous catalog of classic, new, and upcoming games.  It started in the early 90s and was revived in 2015 to great success. Heck, the 2015 event was even rebroadcasted with commentary on the Disney X D Channel!

To qualify for the event, you must visit a participating Best Buy store during the selected qualifying period and post a time in Mario Kart 7 on the Nintendo 3DS.  You can read the full list of participating Best Buy locations here.

Good luck players, I can’t wait to see this event!
