Nintendo has announced that it’s holding a midnight launch event for Pokemon Sun And Moon in Melbourne, Australia. The event is being hosted by EB Games.
The Nintendo AU/NZ Twitter page announced: “Pokémon fans, Thu Nov 17th, 9PM – 12AM, you’re invited to a special Midnight Launch event in Melbourne!”
The official website posted more additional information. Before Pokemon Sun and Moon comes out, you can dress up as your favorite trainer or Pokemon and mingle with lots of other fans. Details are posted below.
“From 9PM this Thursday 17th November, Federation Square will be abuzz with excited fans playing Pokémon, mingling and enjoying the festivities, in anticipation of the Spectacular Midnight Launch Countdown for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, which releases at 12AM, Friday 18th November!”
Even if you don’t live in Melbourne Australia, some EB Games stores in the country will be open at midnight so you can pick up your game early. Pokemon Sun and Moon are the biggest Nintendo 3DS games to be released all year.
The games are expected to sell really well thanks to the newfound interest in the franchise. Pokemon Go helped make casual gamers interested in catching Pokemon again. Likewise, hardcore fans are always eager to get their hands on the latest games.
