  1. How come they waited until NOW to tell us this?
    I already found this out a couple of days ago… and that’s just to confirm it after the first time I asked (which was months ago).

      1. To be honest… I wasn’t sure whether or not that was a fake rumor.
        After all; Gamestop didn’t mention any midnight events on their website. I had to get word from a store clerk for confirmation.

        1. Not sure that will work. They give out the poster when you pick up the game, and they usually don’t give out extras because it’s kind of a first come first serve basis

  2. GameStop: “Any World of Light spoilers during the launch event will result in banned from the event.”
