I know we used to have a large contingent of South Jersey readers Back in the Day, and maybe some of you still check us out. If you do, this one’s for you.
Via Kotaku (and GameCola reader/contributor Becca Clipper), Nintendo appears to be preparing a launch event for Kirby Super Star Ultra tomorrow in, among other places, Medford, just minutes away from my hometown of Tabernacle in Burlington County. (And, believe me, there are very, very few things that are “just minutes” away from Tabernacle.) The details follow. If anyone plans on attending and wants to give us the scoop on what happened, e-mail me at email@example.com. Pictures would also be appreciated!
One-of-a-Kind Celestial Event Expected in September

Authorities at Nintendo are forecasting an extraordinary celestial event this season. Expected to be visible on Sept. 18, this eye-popping occurrence will be best viewed from a handful of specific U.S. locations (see below). Experts are still deliberating over the scientific significance of this rare phenomenon, but evidence points clearly to the reemergence of a luminous entity that citizens from all walks of life will appreciate.
