Nintendo Switch is launching this Friday, and many fans are excited to get their hands on the new system. For those who want to get their consoles as soon as possible, you can now see which GameStop locations will be holding special midnight events.

Unlike most GameStop midnight launches, Nintendo Switch's event will be what's called a "true midnight," in which the product will be released whenever it is 12:01 AM in your specific time zone. This is to be expected from Nintendo, since they did the same for the launch of Pokémon Sun and Moon.

If you want to know if your local store is holding an event, you can check here. The GameStop in my town is also hosting a Mario Kart 8 tournament where the first prize winner gets a free copy of Breath of the Wild. Each location is doing something different, so make sure to ask the one nearest to you to find out what they're doing.
