As quarantine guidelines shift, Nintendo has begun to open some of its brick-and-mortar stores in Japan. Reported by Japanese Nintendo, plans for Nintendo Tokyo have been announced on the store’s official Twitter account. Those wanting to shop at the store can do so starting Monday, June 1st, but there’s a catch: Nintendo is limiting the number of customers inside the store and will be using a reservation system for the first week of the store’s reopening. 

 

 
Those interested are being directed to an event website. There, rules and procedures have been listed, limiting guests to sign up for one 45 minute shopping time slot per day. Nintendo has also clarified that select merchandise will not be available for pre-order and pickup too, as Ring Fit Adventure and the Nintendo Switch unit have been in demand in Japan.
