During the pop-up’s run, fans of the company’s games can also look forward to an account check-in campaign. Players with a Nintendo account who physically visit the venue at Jewel can collect special stickers, which will be issued randomly. 

The stickers feature a range of characters from all the franchises involved in the event. Stickers can be redeemed once a day.


In order to redeem the stickers, players can log into their Nintendo accounts and check-in through a QR code at the store’s entrance. They must verify this with staff at the pop-up store. PHOTO CREDIT: NINTENDO


Shoppers looking to bring home a haul can anticipate six types of postcards designed for the Singaporean pop-up. Anyone who spends $80 and above in a single receipt will receive one postcard.
