StreetPass NYC, a popular grassroots Nintendo 3DS fan club in New York City, invites all parents and kids to the Bronx Community College (181st Street and University Avenue Bronx, NY) on May 11th to demo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS video games in their booth in Kids Comic Con 2013 (Colston Hall) from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
"We are super excited to not only educated children but also parents in the fun and education that is to be had with Nintendo 3DS and Wii U software products", says Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. "Nintendo has a long history of engaging with and making content for children of all ages and we would like to continue that proud tradition. We also would like to use this opportunity to teach parents the educational value of video game software and inform them about the ESRB Rating System so they can shop for appropriate video game software more efficiently."

"Kids Comic Con’s primary goal is to promote reading, creativity, and exploration in kids’ lives,” Alex Simmons, Kids Comic Con Creator and Founder, added. “Now more than ever it is imperative that young people embrace a continuous flow of positive ideas, skills, and outlets for their thinking as well as self-esteem. This year we've found even more people who share these ideas and goals so come share the day and the magic.”
