I wanted to share some cool news with the GameSpot community and that is that Nintendo is bringing another “world store” to California.

Nintendo Hollywood store is coming to Universal CityWalk and will be on a comparable level to the current Nintendo New York store in New York City.

The specific location which is currently expected for the store, is replacing the former Saddle Ranch restaurant, just outside of the Universal Studios Hollywood theme park.

Now that that is out of the way, who else is pumped for another store and is definitely planning to check it out!?

TBH, Nintendo World is highly over-hyped. Sure it is an interesting and fun store but it's relatively small and nothing great so I hope the one in L.A. expands upon it.

@Solaryellow: I’ve never been to the store in New York, but hope you’re right in that the Hollywood store is better!

Due to the limited space and how expensive it is in Manhattan, it is no surprise.

IMO the two floors are not utilized properly. Sure it has cool things but it's not how I feel a flag-ship store should be presented.

@onesiphorus: A 15,000 square foot Nintendo Store would be pretty nice.
