Here at SPLI, we hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with friends, family and StreetPasses! To celebrate National StreetPass weekend and share the exclusive Eon Ticket DLC for Pokemon ORAS, SPLI organized a little meetup at McDonald’s in New Hyde Park on 11/30.
We had a great turnout, with many new faces joining us to get StreetPasses and Eon Tickets for their Pokemon games. Many SPLI members were excited about the location because this event was held at the “McMansion”, which is the fanciest McDonald’s on Long Island! We were permitted to use the private upstairs area for the event, and it was awesome despite being intended for kids birthday parties. Some members traveled from as far as NYC and Suffolk County to attend the event!
We battled Pokemon, sought out Super Secret Bases, some members even “Settled it in Smash”, and of course we splurged on greasy french fries! It was a lot of fun and we are so THANKFUL (get it?) to have enjoyed a SPLI event with so many enthusiastic members during National StreetPass Weekend! Thanks to everyone who joined us for Eon Ticket StreetPass Day!
Nintendo is kicking off the Thanksgiving Weekend early by spreading the word that this weekend is officially a National StreetPass Weekend! Starting today, if you visit any local Nintendo Zone (which can be found at various retail and fast food locations such as Best Buy, McDonald’s and Starbucks, ask your local store and see if they have it!) you can get a StreetPass from someone from out of state or even another country! During National StreetPass Weekend, the StreetPass relays from Nintendo Zone get shuffled around and everyone gets a TON of StreetPasses! This will help everyone to complete all of these new Puzzle Swap puzzle panels that were recently released for Pikmin 3, Sonic Boom and Ultimate NES Remix! And if you’re a Pokemon fan, StreetPass is the ONLY way to receive the special Eon Ticket DLC, which unlocks a new island in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire!
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to participate in National StreetPass Weekend. If you’re in NYC, you can stop by Nintendo World Store and get a StreetPass there! Of course, you can also find StreetPass NYC members StreetPassing in the area, so the Eon Ticket DLC will probably be quite easy to find if you’re in the city this weekend!
Long Islanders can also meetup with SPLI on Sunday, 11/30 for Eon Ticket StreetPass Day! We’re going to be at the lovely Townhouse McDonald’s in New Hyde Park from 4-6pm on Sunday and we will be distributing the Eon Ticket for anyone who joins us! We do ask that since we’re hosting this at McDonalds, if you plan to stay more than 15 minutes you must purchase some food. But if you want to quickly stop by just to get a StreetPass and then go on your way, that’s totally fine (and free) too!
We hope you all enjoy National StreetPass Weekend and have a Happy Thanksgiving as well!
