Miitomo Secret Mission Discovered!

Update: APRIL FOOLS!!! 😛

The Nintendo community was buzzing yesterday, as the long-awaited mobile app “Miitomo” was launched for iOS and Android. Nintendo fans have been having a blast setting up their Mii characters, making friends, answering questions and collecting outfits. But did you know that the app was released with a very lucrative secret easter egg mission?

Nintendo of America had posted this Tweet earlier hinting that there was a special secret bonus for those who are extremely active on Miitomo.

Rumors have been swirling that Miitomo players who give out 1,000 hearts in a 24 hour period will unlock a special secret mission, and those who complete it will receive 1,000 bonus Platinum coins!

How does it work? First, you need the Miitomo app (obviously) and some friends for your Mii character. Then it’s a matter of diligence – you simply have to give 1,000 hearts to your friends’ posts within 24 hours. This is significantly easier if you have a lot of friends, so be sure to start adding all of your buddies! You can even convince your non-3DS owning friends, since you don’t NEED a Nintendo account to get started in Miitomo! Once you have successfully given out 1,000 hearts in Miitomo, you will receive an email from Nintendo with a code to redeem for the Platinum coin reward.

CONFIRMED –

If you have a ton of friends, this actually doesn’t take THAT long. SPLI Founder Debbie (aka Glux) was proud to show off that she was able to earn the bonus Platinum coins from this Miitomo secret mission!

Do you think you can complete the mission in 24 hours?? Good luck!!

Nintendoland at Adventureland!

SPLI’s 3rd Anniversary is fast approaching! In past years we’ve celebrated with big Pokemon parties and tournaments, but this year we wanted to try something different. It’s quite clear that Long Island gamers are fabulous cosplayers, and since our cosplay events are always so much fun we decided to turn our group’s anniversary into a cosplay party! We’re calling our event “Nintendoland at Adventureland” because we plan on invading Long Island’s favorite amusement park in full Nintendo-themed cosplay!

Like Mario? Luigi? Metroid? Legend of Zelda? Pikmin? Wear your favorite costume to Adventureland and go on fun rides with your fellow cosplayers and Nintendo enthusiasts! We’ll be taking tons of photos, so bring your friends too! Just keep in mind that some costumes and props are NOT well suited for amusement park rides, so keep the safety of yourself and others in mind when choosing your cosplay. Also remember that weapon props will not be allowed in the park, so don’t bring that sort of thing please! If you have a specific question, please contact SPLI directly.


DATE: Saturday, August 15th / Rain Date – August 16th

TIME: 1PM – 6PM (or later depending on how it goes!)

WHERE: Adventureland – 2245 Broadhollow Rd., Farmingdale, New York 11735

PRICE: Free to Enter. Tickets must be purchased to go on amusement park rides. There is a Pay One Price option for unlimited rides for those who are interested.

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/717436768402953/


Some things to keep in mind:

  • Adventureland is open to the public, and most people in the park will not be expecting to see cosplayers running around. Please dress in family-friendly costumes! Please don’t be rude to random people in the park. People might try to take photos of you, if you are not OK with this, please reconsider your cosplay.
  • If your costume includes a hat or props, please be sure to secure them before going on rides! Neither SPLI nor Adventureland is responsible for your cosplay props.
  • You are not required to stay with the group. If you want to branch out and go on rides on your own with your friends, that’s totally fine!
  • While the park is free to enter, please bring money if you plan on doing anything more than sit around. SPLI cannot pay for your tickets or food/drinks.
  • Cosplay is NOT REQUIRED. You can wear whatever you want! But Nintendo costumes, t-shirts, etc. are recommended for optimal fun!
  • Bring your 3DS for StreetPasses! That’s what we’re all about!

We are planning to meet up at 1PM at the front of the parking lot where you buy tickets. We will go into the park together as a group and take some photos. If you need to arrive late, you can come anytime. It shouldn’t be too hard to find the rest of the group members!

Have any questions about the event? Please comment here on the site or email us at info @ spli dot com! 🙂

What You Missed: SPLI at Eternal Con!

Last weekend, the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City was host to the 2nd annual Eternal Con, which is Long Island’s pop-culture event of the summer! And just like last year, SPLI was there to represent and support our local Long Island con and we hosted two panels!

Our first panel was “Unleash the Power of Amiibo” where we discussed different Amiibo training strategies and recommended lots of great places to find Amiibo competitions and tournaments. We also had to use this opportunity to show off some of our Amiibo collections, as well as some awesome custom paint jobs!

The second panel hosted by SPLI was the “Ask a Pokemon Gym Leader” panel, which was extremely popular! We filled the room with Pokemon fans who came to learn more about new battle strategies and get tips on what Gym Leaders do to try and outsmart their opponents. It was a lot of fun and we were pumped to see some Pokemon Trainer cosplayers at the panel too!

Check out our photos from Eternal Con, and maybe next year you will join us in the fun!

SPLI at Eternal Con!

SPLI has been very busy preparing for Eternal Con this weekend, June 13 – 14! We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting not one but TWO panels at Eternal Con this year! Both panels will be held on Saturday, June 13th in Panel Room #2. Read below for the deets!

2:00: Unleash the Power of Amiibo!

Nintendo’s Amiibo figures have created quite a stir in the gaming community this year! Retailers are scrambling to keep up with demand, customers are hunting and trading for rare characters, and Smash players are training their Amiibo figures hard for tournaments. StreetPass Long Island has been hosting a monthly Amiibo Tournament series on Long Island and we are ready to answer all of your questions about how to unleash the power of your Amiibo figures!

4:00: Ask a Pokemon Gym Leader
Do you have what it takes to be a Pokemon Gym Leader? You’ll need a strong team, a battle strategy, as well as experience to be ready for the challenge. The SPLI Pokemon League brings you some of their mono-type Gym Leaders to answer your battle questions, learn how to create team synergy, and maybe show you some new tricks to bring your Pokemon battle skills to the next level!

If you want to check out our newest Panels, you’ll need a ticket to Eternal Con! Weekend passes and single day tickets are still available, so act fast and reserve your spot! Be sure to follow our Event Page on Facebook for all of the latest news. We’ll see ya there!

 

What You Missed: SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (May)

Mother’s Day meant a lot of Amiibo fun for those who came out to the SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament (May) event at A Store of Fire and Dice in Lynbrook, NY on 5/10. We held an Amiibo Doubles tournament and it was a lot of fun!

Much to her delight, SPLI Co-Founder Debbie ended up winning the Tournament with her King Koopa and Zeruda pairing. (They were undefeated for the day!) But since SPLI admins can’t win a tournament, the prize was awarded to the runner-up David with his Bowser and Link Amiibo. They performed well and should be commended!

We’ll post the highlight videos from the stream soon I promise! Plus stay tuned for a major announcement about the future of the SPLI Amiibo Only Tournament!

What You Missed: Dave & Busters Birthday Bash!

This past Sunday, SPLI members gathered at Dave & Busters in Westbury, NY to celebrate the birthdays of many SPLI members. We played lots of awesome arcade games, talked strategy on the latest StreetPass games that were released last week, and some members even did some hunting in MH4U at the event!

Of course, what would kind of birthday party would this be without cake? We all sat down together for a meal and shared some delicious cake that was generously donated by SPLI member Damon D.

Happy Birthday to all SPLI April Babies! Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate our birthdays, we had a lot of fun and met lots of new friends! See you at our next event, this Sunday (4/26) for our next Amiibo Only Tournament from 5-8pm!

Dave & Busters Birthday Bash

Two years ago, SPLI held a birthday party event for a few Admins who all happen to have a birthday in April. Well… this year we decided to do it again! Unfortunately our favorite DnB (Farmingdale) closed a few weeks ago, so we will be hosting this event at the Westbury location. It is somewhat accessible to public transportation! You can either take the LIRR to Carle Place (rare) and walk, or take the LIRR to Mineola and take the N24 bus down Old Country Road to reach Dave & Busters at the Source Mall!

This is a casual meetup. You can come late, leave early, do your own thing and play whatever games you want! Presents not required. Cake is limited! lol

WHEN: Saturday, April 18th

TIME: 2:30PM – 5:00PM

WHERE: Dave & Busters Westbury (1504 Old Country Road
Westbury, NY 11590)
