To promote the Nintendo Labo line, Nintendo New York will be hosting a Nintendo Labo workshop series from April 20 through April 22. The catch is, unlike many other Nintendo NY events, you must RSVP ahead of time for a chance to attend.

But wait–the RSVP isn’t a simple Facebook check, either! Again, many Nintendo NY events have Facebook events that, like most other Facebook events, don’t really indicate any actual attendance levels and what to prepare for.

To RSVP for this event, you must e-mail Nintendo NY at [email protected] starting on April 16 at 9 AM EST. Your e-mail must contain information regarding the day and time you would like to attend to be considered. If your RSVP is accepted, you may bring up to two guests. However, Nintendo NY has warned that space is limited, and the seats are first-come, first-served, so you will want to send your e-mail as close to the required time as possible, and recruit a few interested friends to send their own e-mails as well!

The workshops will be taking place on April 20 at 3-4:30 PM, 5-6:30 PM, and 7-8:30 PM, April 21 at 10-11:30 AM, 12-1:30 PM, and 2-3:30 PM, and April 22 at 11 AM-12:30 PM, 1-2:30 PM, and 3-4:30 PM. All times are EST.

The series itself will mostly consist of guided demonstrations with the new Nintendo Labo product line. The Labo items are cardboard pieces that the player assembles on their own to enhance their Switch experience. Some Labo items that could be demonstrated include functioning 13-key pianos, fishing rods, handles, although there is more to the line.

At this time, it is unknown if any part of the store will be open during these times or for regular hours at all.
