Nintendo's DSi Midnight Launch SpectacularS

Nintendo is kicking off the release of the DSi with a ever-so-slightly star-studded midnight launch event at Los Angeles' Universal CityWalk GameStop.

Nintendo's mom Cammie Dunaway and the host of G4's Attack of the Show, Kevin Periera will be on hand, counting down to the midnight launch of the third iteration of their dual-screen handheld, the Nintendo DSi. The event will feature music by VJ Fader on a giant projection globe, I Am 8-Bit art giveaways, interactive gaming stations, and for some strange reason, parkour street running stunt performances. It may sound hastily cobbled together, but I'm sure there's some sort of theme going on here. We just have to figure out the connection between parkour and Kevin Periera and we'll have it.

The festivities start at 9PM on Saturday, April 4th, with the system going on sale at midnight amidst some sort of big celebration. Me? I'll be getting up early Sunday and parkour running down to my local GameStop to pick mine up, just to keep in the spirit of things.
