Nintendo officials are urging families to gather at a handful of conspicuous locations around the U.S. Thursday to bear witness to a series of mysterious skyward events. All signs point to a certain adorable pink blob with a voracious appetite for inanimate objects and living beings alike.
Promising a "spectacular, star-filled display visible from Earth" and a "luminous spectacle that onlookers from coast to coast will be talking about," the gaming giant sent out word today of four locations where the mystery events will unfold in a matter of days.
"Authorities at Nintendo are forecasting an extraordinary celestial event this season. Expected to be visible on Sept. 18, this eye-popping occurrence will be best viewed from a handful of specific U.S. locations," according to the news release. "Experts are still deliberating over the scientific significance of this rare phenomenon, but evidence points clearly to the reemergence of a luminous entity that citizens from all walks of life will appreciate."
