  1. Woo…for a moment there I thought it would only be coming to California. Still…2012 for the tour? If I have to wait that long, I very much hope it comes to Philadelphia or somewhere else equally close to me! :D

    1. Me tooo I was about to be really upset XD but I hope it comes to philly too cause that’s close to me as well :D

    2. I think Nintendo is supposed to be releasing a soundtrack of the orchestrated music alongside of Skyward Sword as an early purchase bonus and for the 25 anniversary; kind of like what Nintendo did with Ocarina of Time soundtrack. I read it in Iwata Asks and I think they may have mentioned it at E3.

    3. I agree. They will hopefully have something in the Eastern US. I really want to see this, but I don’t want to fly to California.

  2. Thank God it isn’t only California. C’mon, Southeast U.S. always gets screwed over in Nintendo events. Miami? Please? It’s a big city?

    1. Chicago is one of the largest US cities, but it never gets Nintendo events either. Always some odd place in Indiana.

      1. Well, I’m fine with anywhere that I don’t have to get on an airplane to go to. Like Orlando, Miami, or Tampa.
        Maybe Atlanta or something but that’s getting too far.

  3. I’ll probably never get to go. The only place they do in the UK is in London. Maybe Edinburgh if lucky. Both are far too far away.

  4. I would travel hundreds of miles to attempt, but not transatlantic. Europeans dates now! :D

  5. It’s useless to beg because I’m sure it’ll go south instead but: Please bring the concert to Oklahoma!!!

  6. Well, if they don’t come to London then somthing’s seriously messed up. Just sayin’

  7. If this comes to South Africa I will spend all my money to see it if I have to. Sadly, I doubt we’ll get it here =(

  8. Sydney.

    PLEASE. Even though I live in Canberra, but any Australian would know that’s not gonna happen.

  9. It’s awesome to know they’re premiering in LA! StreetPass LA, OC, SD and other participating Southern California StreetPass Network groups will be there for one massive event. Expect lots of pictures. ;)

  10. I’m loving the come-to-Oklahoma posts. It’d be great to hear that magic in the OKC Arena or the fine arts district (or Cattlett Music Hall in Norman). At least in Dallas!!

  11. I hate when they exclude all states that aren’t “big cities” Northeast U.S.A, Nintendo?

  12. I really hope it comes to miami! i think i would die of excitment! plus callifornia and NY are always getting the good stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
