Hidden Super Mario in BotW!

Most Nintendo Switch owners picked up the latest game in the Legend of Zelda series, the Breath of the Wild. It’s a fantastic game with an expansive world map, and most players leave no stone left un-turned (hey, there might be a Korok hiding under there!).

But a new discovery has Nintendo fans buzzing – a hidden Super Mario easter egg has been found in the topography! If you carefully view the zoomed in map, you can find Super Mario’s head!

New Targets for the Zelda Archery Event!

SPLI has been hard at work planning the upcoming Legend of Zelda Archery Competition – Second Quest! event coming up Wednesday, November 19th at 7:30 PM. (For pricing, location details and to RSVP, please visit the event page!)

One thing we wanted to upgrade this year are the targets. We want to really test the skills of our members, so we incorporated an actual archery target into each of the Hyrule Warriors Enemy and Villain targets, making scoring a little easier and the skill level a little harder! This is the SECOND quest, after all!

WizzroTargetToday we are releasing a teaser target – Wizzro. This is just one of the options that will be available to shoot at the Legend of Zelda Archery Competition – Second Quest! We will be printing these out and everyone will be able to take home their target at the end of the night! The three highest scores will also receive a small Perler bead prize!

And of course, we will also we doing a trick shot with an eShop giftcard as a prize. But this will be no ordinary trick shot – this year we’ll have you going totally cuckoo for Cuccoo’s!

Be sure to RSVP today and reserve your spot in the Legend of Zelda Archery Competition – Second Quest! If you’re as excited about it as we are, tell your friends and use the hashtag #ZeldaArchery if you post about it on Twitter! See everyone on 11/19/14!

What You Missed: The Legend of Zelda-themed Archery Competition

Zelda fans from across the tri-state area came together to show off their archery skills for the Legend of Zelda-themed Archery Competition, hosted by StreetPass Long Island and StreetPass NYC in Ozone Park, NY on November 17th.  Under the guidance of professionally trained archery experts courtesy of Proline Archery Lanes, StreetPass fans learned to shoot a Long Bow and participated in a tournament using Zelda-themed targets!  Check out some photo highlights below and visit the full album on our Facebook Page.

Competition winners were awarded with perler bead ‘medals’ made to look like the Hero’s Bow.
SPLI Leader Jeff Weinstein challenged the group to make a 20 yard trick shot – hit the eyeball on the Eye Switch target. He offered a $35 eShop Gift Card if anyone could hit the bullseye. Sadly, the prize went unclaimed and will be saved for a future challenge!

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Concert

The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert was held at the famous Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

In conclusion, here is some videos we recorded at the concert.  Sorry for the shaky/blurry footage, but it’s really just about the music right?  The audio isn’t really fantastic either… guess you’ll just have to go see the Symphony for yourself to get the full experience!  🙂

This music is from the Spirit Tracks segment of the Symphony.
