Mario arrives today!

The reason many of us bought a 3DS in the first place goes on sale in North America today! I’m off to pick up my copy, along with (hopefully) the Tanooki Mario keychain that was part of the preorder deal.

Anyone else jumping down a green pipe today? Were any of you lucky enough to attend the event in NYC and pick up your copy early? Did this convince anyone to actually buy a 3DS this afternoon?
