Nintendo celebrates Spring with a StreetPass Weekend in North America
Spring is finally here and so is National StreetPass Weekend!
Spring is now upon us! It’s finally the time of the year for barbecue and beach week-ends with family and friends. But also for hours of outside play with your new Switch. But you might also want to bring your 3DS if you’re living in North America. Why? Because this week-end, it’s the National StreetPass Weekend – Spring Edition!
Starting this April 13th until the 16th, if you stop by a Nintendo Zone with your Nintendo 2DS/3DS across North America, be prepared for a whole lot of goodies and special events in several games. There’ll also be up to six StreetPass tags to collect during this StreetPass Spring Weekend event. Here’s all the details of what games will be features during these four sunny days:
Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World
Gather with your friends in the Nintendo Zones around your town, design whole new pattern for your Yoshi, and then share it via StreetPass. Don’t own the game? There’s a free demo on the Nintendo 3DS eShop!
Super Mario Maker
Special Spring themed courses will be created by all players around the different Nintendo Zones in North America, and probably by the Nintendo teams as well. Create your own and go share it!
Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo
The Nintendo Zone locations always offer special in-game furniture and items all throughout the year. But for this special occasion, you can get unique items from Nintendo. Three new spring-themed elements will be offered during the Spring StreetPass event, two given when you visit a Nintendo Zone on certain days, and a third one received at your Post Office (in the game…) via the SpotPass feature any day of the event.
- Cherry-blossom clock (4/1 – 4/15) in Nintendo Zone
- Taurus bathtub (4/16 – 4/30) in Nintendo Zone
- Lotus pond (from Post Office)
DRAGON QUEST VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
During this special event, take photos of characters, places and slimes throughout your journey in the kingdom of Trodain. Then go to a Nintendo Zone and pass it around you to get special ratings on your picture. If your photo is appreciated, it’ll get special embellishments like filters, stamps, and more!
Dragon Ball Fusions
Special gatherings are organised during the StreetPass Spring event to let players meet in all the Nintendo Zones and take advantage of the special StreetPass Fusion ability in the game. That’s right, you can fuse your character with the one of another player! These gatherings are also the perfect moment to show fight and show who’s the best Sayan!
Gather with other players in the Nintendo Zones and share your game stats. You can also earn one heart per five StreetPass meet ups. But that’s not all, Pokémon Shuffle is also giving away a special in-game gift every day during this event for those who check-in!
Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns
Meeting with other Story of Seasons players in the Nintendo Zones will automatically share your farmer profiles and pet informations with others. Your pet can also visit Westown in another farmer’s game, and bring back special items from Dessie. The more farmers you meet, the more items you will receive. You’ll also see pets from other owners visit your farm. So say hi and don’t forget to make friends with them!
