For many Singaporeans, the exclusive merch in Nintendo stores in Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto may seem out of reach. However, a glimmer of hope has arrived in the form of a Nintendo Pop-Up Store at Jewel Changi Airport.
You can finally check out the buzz tomorrow (17 Nov) when the store officially opens, till its last day on 1 Jan 2024.
The store, the first of its kind in Southeast Asia (SEA), contains exclusive merch from various popular games like ‘Super Mario’ and ‘Animal Crossing’.
In line with the pop-up, Jewel Changi Airport is also hosting a special ‘Pipe Around the World at Jewel’ Mario-themed event, where you can find photo ops and score unique merch for free.

Besides merchandise, customers can get their Nintendo Switch essentials like consoles and games such as ‘Super Mario Bros. Wonder’, ‘The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’, and ‘Pikmin 4’ at the store.
