By Joel Taveras

March 4, 2010

Time to get out your decade old Tidus cosplay costume and inflatable Yuna doll and head down to your local pimp Gamestop with a comfy chair in hand and park your rear in front of the store. It was announced late yesterday that there will in fact be a midnight launch on Monday, March 8th for what is probably the most anticipated RPG of this current generation. Hit the jump for more details!You’re probably wondering as to why you should dress for the occasion, and it’s because there will actually be an in-store character costume contest! Exciting I know, but there’s more. There will also be trivia contests as well as artwork contests, so in other words there’s something for everyone.  3,200 stores taking part in the festivities, but if you want to check if your local shop is taking part, just checkout the complete list here. In the mean time, I will get back to sewing the Barret costume for Yaris.
