All retail games release on the eShop at midnight on the day of release. eShop exclusive games release at a certain time each week, depending on your region, I don't know Europe's release time, but in North America, it's Thursday at 9 AM Pacific Time.

Now playing:
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U) | Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS) | Fantasy Life (3DS)
AC:NL Dream Address: 4100-3259-5964
I would come up with a clever name for my backloggery, but my name prevents it.

As @Brewsky said it's thursday in North America but for me I go by eastern standard time so the game's release in the e-shop at 12 noon over here. I wish they released them at 9 am over my way instead of having to wait in the middle of the day. :'( So annoying...

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

I don't think any of you answer his or her question. He or she is talking about Midnight release and not the weekly releases.

They will release at midnight on the same day as the retail release unless specified otherwise

It's 6 AM for me now, oh well I'll just get it a couple hours later then, I'll keep my fingers crossed so that the eshop servers wont crash. Again.
