They should arrive by meaning a bit before the release date for stocking.
Announcing a release date 123 days before a game comes out. Clever. I guess Saturday was chosen to adjust and find some day of the week part way for any place.

Pokemon is one of the few games where I just go to wal-mart at midnight and pick it up. I never have to worry about it not being there. --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/ (Currently Updating: Persona 4TW Add-On M-F)

It's out on a Saturday because that's the day when games are usually released in Japan. --- Official everything of every board.

I figured Saturday was picked b/c it was in between Friday, which is when European countries would usually have them released, and Sunday, which is when they would be released in North America. Japan usually going w/ Saturday strengthen the reasoning, though. It's the day of the week I go to morning worship, though. --- Official Sisyphus of the Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Board ''Slmming. When trolling just won't do.''~shiro_amayagi

Yea gamestop will have them well in advance before the release. Even wal mart gets it in stock before the release date and will stock it the day it comes out. Believe that they will have it the day of release and probably a midnight release --- White 2 FC 3783-8203-6238 Trainer Name: Dibab
