Love Nintendo? Live in the New York City area? You won't want to miss this event at Japan Society, all about the future of Mario, Link and Starfox:

Nintendo has released its handheld 3DS console and unveiled its next-generation Wii U console this year, but neither has changed the fortunes of the video game giant, which has seen its once-dominant position challenged. Has a change in the industry toward lower-priced games for smartphones or tablets caught the Kyoto firm flat-footed or will one of Japan's greatest corporations again find its way? Dan Sloan, author ofPlaying to Wiin: Nintendo and Video Game Industry's Greatest Comeback discusses the outlook of Nintendo with moderator Jamin Warren, Founder, Kill Screen. 

Now for the best part: Our friends at Japan Society are offering a limited number of tickets to DramaFever fans!

This event is Thursday, October 6th at 6:30pm, at 333 East 47th Street (corner of 1st Ave.) in New York City.
