Select GameStops around the country won’t be the only locations celebrating Splatoon 2’s splatastic release this Saturday. Nintendo NY is throwing a good ol’ bash from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. EST. So far, those running the shindig are a bit mum on the details, but if it’s anything like previous events at the store, it’ll be fun for all ages and perhaps filled with some swag. I would get your check-in QR code for your My Nintendo account ready, just in case.

If the following sounds good to you, plan accordingly! Luckily, it’s being held the day after launch, so you can get plenty of matches in:

“Dive into ink-splatting action at Nintendo NY during our Splatoon 2 launch event! Participate in a target practice game, enjoy craft activities, and more! Kids or squids of any age can join in for the fun!”
