Nintendo Live 2022 Merch NOT to be Sold at Event in October

Nintendo Live 2022, the upcoming in person event full of tournaments, live music and more, is coming to Tokyo Big Sight on October 8 to October 9. While Nintendo originally promised to bring a variety of event related merchandise to the show, that is no longer the case. The pre-sale of items via My Nintendo Japan was so popular online that items sold out very quickly. Given the timed entry periods for guests, goods will likely run out at a similar pace during the October event, not giving everyone a chance to pick up what they like. 

Nintendo’s solution for this is to open up the ability to purchase Nintendo Live 2022 merch online via My Nintendo Store (Japan) exclusively to those who are attending the event. Nintendo sent an email to attendees containing a link to apply to purchase the items (also be sure to check your notifications once logged in to your Japanese My Nintendo account). This will take you to a special page on My Nintendo where you can "purchase" access to the Nintendo Live 2022 merch page. This is completely free and must be done by Monday, September 26 at 10:00 a.m. The sales period will run from the afternoon of Wednesday, September 28 until Friday, September 30. Only those who applied for the pre-order period will be able to access the sales hub. Items will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Merchandise will start shipping on September 30 and are set to be delivered, at the latest, by Thursday, October 6.

Additionally, Nintendo Live 2022 goods will be up for sale on the My Nintendo Store at some point after the event has concluded. Just to be clear, other non Nintendo Live 2022 related merchandise WILL be available at the merchandise counter at the event. 

Expect more coverage of Nintendo Live 2022. I’m going to the event and will be providing some kind of overview of the event afterward. You can see a complete lineup of the merch below.
