Really quick rush post here, as I only got word this morning (after I collapsed asleep following a night of stomach turmoil). Directly from the press release:
STRANGER THINGS STAR AND NINTENDO SUPERFAN FINN WOLFHARD
KICKS OFF NINTENDO SWITCH SALES AT TORONTO MIDNIGHT LAUNCH
At midnight on March 3, sales of the highly-anticipated Nintendo Switch will officially launch in Canada – and Finn Wolfhard, one of Nintendo’s biggest fans, will join the celebrations in Toronto.
The Canadian actor currently stars as Mike Wheeler on the series Stranger Things; season two of the Netflix hit will debut on October 31 of this year. The 14-year old will also appear in a new film adaptation of Stephen King’s It, opening September 8. And he’s a die-hard Nintendo fan. To kick-off the launch, Finn will join legions of Nintendo fans lining up to purchase a Nintendo Switch at EB Games at Yonge-Dundas Square. At midnight on March 3, Finn will cut the ribbon to officially welcome shoppers into the store. And rumour has it that he’ll be joined by a certain mustachioed plumber.
Nintendo Switch is a breakthrough home video game system that not only connects to a TV at home, but also instantly transforms into an on-the-go handheld using its 6.2-inch touchscreen. For the first time, players can enjoy a full home-console experience anytime, anywhere. On a scale from one to ten, excitement levels are at Eleven.

Where: Yonge-Dundas EB Games
267 Yonge Street
When: March 3, 2017 at 12:00 a.m. (midnight)
