Nintendo Osaka will be the company’s second permanent official store in Japan. Its first store in Tokyo is located at the Shibuya Parco shopping mall, which opened in November 2019. The company previously opened pop-up stores in Nagoya, Fukuoka, Sendai, Hiroshima, and Hokkaido. However, those stores only opened temporarily in Summer 2021. Outside of Japan, Nintendo also has an official store in the United States in New York.

The Daimaru Umeda department store is not a new name for fans of Pokemon in Osaka. It has hosted the city’s first physical Pokemon Center store on the 13th floor since 2010.

The Japanese game company has yet to reveal more details about the new Osaka store other than the projected location and launch window. However, it confirmed that the Osaka store will sell Nintendo’s consoles, games, accessories, and related merchandise, just like the Tokyo store. Nintendo has previously released merchandise related to MarioYoshiPikmin, and the Koroks from The Legend of Zelda.

The Nintendo Osaka store will appear at Daimaru Umeda around the end of 2022.
