StreetPass NYC presents "Stop the Swarm!" This special event, which is part of a worldwide "Stop the Swarm!" series, challenges you to stop a swarm of Resident Evil monsters that are on the move. It's up to you and your fellow Nintendo 3DS owners to keep your city safe!
During the event, participants will attempt to get an "S" or "SS" ranking in any single mission. Anyone who does so at least once during the event will have helped "Stop the Swarm!" and will also have their name and rankings listed on StreetPass NYC, StreetPass Network and maybe even other gaming blogs like the Capcom Unity Blog!
Those who make "S" or "SS" ranking will be paired into Duos and group contestants will compete in a Level 4 or above Mission (chosen on the day) and try to get the highest score.
The Duo with the highest score will earn a small money prize/gift card that will be revealed at the event!
The Top Three Duos will also have their name and rankings listed on StreetPass NYC, StreetPass Network and maybe even other gaming blogs like the Capcom Unity Blog!
We will also have a Resident Evil Cosplay contest with a separate cash/gift card prize at the event! Try to dress either as a Resident Evil character or your most gruesome monster!
Finally, (as of now only limited to the contestants of the events) we will have Face Painter(s) to turn our members into zombies! At around 5:50pm we will march down to Duffy Square in Times Square (where the red steps are) for our Group Photo!
If you don't have a copy of Resident Evil: Mercenaries and want to participate, you might be able to borrow a copy of the game from another person.
We can't promise that extra copies will be available, though, so the best way to participate is by bringing your own copy of the game.
NOTE: If you're uninterested in "Stop the Swarm!" or too young to play Resident Evil: Mercenaries, you're welcome to treat this event as a regular StreetPass NYC meetup ala Giant AR Cards and StreetPassing!
