Super Mario Galaxy 2 Means No Rest For GameStop Employees

It appears Mario prefers to be an early riser, rather than a night owl. Forgoing a midnight launch for Super Mario Galaxy 2 this weekend, many GameStop locations will instead open early, forcing many employees to miss church.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the Wii, as Nintendo games often do, launches in North America on a Sunday, this May 23. For GameStop, that means setting the alarm a little earlier, with some stores opening up at 9 a.m. so that Wii owners can get their copies early. Of course, GameStop has plenty of competition that will be up earlier than that, so the choice is up to you.

Who's grabbing the game on Sunday? Think it'll be worth giving up the extra sleep? We'll give you our opinion on the game very soon.
