Triforce Heroes Tournament Rules

StreetPass Long Island will be hosting a Triforce Heroes Tournament for Nintendo 3DS systems! Here’s what you need to know:

– This is a TEAM game, so you will be set up with two more players to play cooperatively on a specific stage.
– If you happen to have two friends that you want to team up with, that’s no problem! Just let us know at registration.
– Winning team will have the highest score at the end of the stage. The score is a combination of your remaining fairies and how many rupees your team collected on the stage.
