National StreetPass Weekend!

National StreetPass Weekend

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!

Pokemon ORAS Eon Ticket

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!

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.

This music is from the Wind Waker segment of the Symphony.

We hope you enjoyed our E3 Coverage!
