Its not a nintendo game, and the date we all have been looking forward to is a SHIPPING date. Thats when the game is released to be shipped all over the nation. The stores wont get them until the next day. The only way to get a game on it's release date is:Originally Posted by Default
1) you live near the city where the game itself is manufactured.
2) it's such an anticipated game that all of the copies were sent ahead of time to go on sale THAT day.
3) the people at the store are idiots, and accidently sell the game early if they have them in early
