HOPEFULLY at a midnight release. I'm traveling this weekend, so I pre-ordered it online at a gamestop (bleh, I know...but it was the only option) in the area. Tried calling them to see if they're doing a midnight release, but they won't pick up their phone...

Whenever Best Buy Canada ships, so anywhere from the 3rd to the 5th I guess?

Does anybody know how smoothly the japanese eshop release went?

I don't have a copy reserved and I have to work at 6am friday, so that's my best bet for me, unless it's a guaranteed disaster.

Either the 3rd or the 4th. Probably the 3rd on my way home from School / Smash. Possibly Saturday morning though.

Whenever the game finishes downloading from the eShop, thankfully I can start at 9 PM assuming that I'm home at 9.

Friday at midnight. Thankfully, the Gamestop in the back is doing the midnight release and I already have my copy paid for so I just need to go pick it up and run home as fast as I can.

What are the chances the Eshop will crash Thursday night? I'm banking on downloading it then.

Friday for sure, then spending the night at a friend's house and sleeping over there, only to spend the next day there too so we can all just play Smash together. Definitely looking forward to this weekend!
That is exactly what I plan to do...except perhaps not actually sleeping, but instead playing Smash all night!

Home, of course.
Small update: I'm probably getting the game on Saturday, not the day it comes out for Americans and European people, but at least i'm getting the game together with the Aussies.

EDIT: never mind, gonna get it on Friday.

Jesus Christ, I just got a mail telling me I can go pick up the game whenever, but I can't leave this city until Friday.

Beyond cruel.

Got a call from the game store telling me I could pick it up. I was still at work, and due to someone messing up, I had to work overtime. By the time I was finally able to leave it was past 18:00. T_T

Ah well, I'll pick it up during my lunch break tomorrow then - still a day early. Thankfully I never work on Fridays, so I can play all night if I want to. Just might do, in fact.

Thursday Midnight!!!!!

The manager of the local GS I spoke to for whatever reason did not think his store was having a midnight release for SSB4. I found out a couple days later he was mistaken. Yyyeeaaahhhhhh. All night smash battles against my brother just like with every previous game. And getting down on some For Glory. Weird to think about being 10 years old when the original SSB dropped... good times

I hope a lot of the other people picking up their copies bring their 2/3/XL DS for demo matches while queuing and for a quick several matches on the full game before everyone speeds home lol

I'm waking up 15 minutes before gamestop opens, then I'm immediately heading there to pick up my copy as soon as the store opens.

I asked off for Friday but unfortunately was unable to get it off. So, it looks like after 5pm on Friday!
