Pokemon X and Pokemon Y come out on a Saturday instead of Sunday this time?

Kinda usually a popular Nintendo game comes out on a Sunday.

Japan releases the games on Saturdays so schoolkids can enjoy them on Sunday, I think. Idk though.

Saturday is less convenient for me.

My church is across the street from the mall (where I work and shop). I get out of church and go right to GS whenever a big Nintendo game comes out. I get the game and head home.

With a Saturday, I have to drive to the mall and then back home.

I'm not sure why this is a Saturday release.

I would prefer a Friday release. Gives me the entire weekend to play

Just means more time to play, though I would prefer on Friday, since I usually don't work Friday through Sunday.

I have to agree, for the same reason Sunday is much more convienient for me, but that also means the school kids only have less than one day to play before they have to go to school Monday, and electronics aren't allowed in any school here. So by releasing Saturday they would give the school kids an extra day to play but then again the Pokemon release is usually only one day a year so its not like I can't go out of my way to get the game for one Saturday, and besides its only 5-10 min out of my way.

While I love the worldwide release, I hate this trend of releasing on Saturday.

Australia normally releases games on Thursday or Friday, but lately Nintendo have been releasing games on Saturdays in Australia, even if it's not a worldwide simultaneous release. It's so strange and pointless.
