Nintendo New York hosted a Kirby: Planet Robobot launch celebration on June 11 from 3-6pm.Today also marked the Super Fan Sign Up Day to play The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. Fans will have their own Nintendo E3 experience next week here in New York City.
Attendees were invited to participate in all of the family-oriented activities, from seeing who can build a Kirby Robobot using magnets fastest and a Kirby coloring station. Certain stations rewarded participants with Kirby buttons. Trivia winners won Kirby–themed edibles presented by Nerdache Cakes.
There were also many opportunities for photos such as a big Kirby backdrop, a Kirby cut out and a booth to take photos to put yourself in Kirby mech. Throughout the event, a life sized Kirby would come out and interact with guests.

Outside of Nintendo New York, the trading cards were only available as a preorder bonus at GameStop retailers.
