Before this amazing storm of games hits our Nintendo 3DS, we thought we should put together our first official first meeting of 2012 to play our current games and get StreetPass hits one more time.

And we can't think of any better place to hang out than Dave & Busters in Times Square!

Younger kids must be with a Parent/Guardian to enter (or so we are told), 21+ with ID to drink, look for the StreetPass NYC Flag or find us at our favorite arcade games such as Pac-Man Battle Royal, House of the Dead 4, Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero Arcade and Mario Kart Arcade GP 2!

We also hope to have a redeemable download code for the upcoming eShop title Mutant Mudds that you can win! Details on how to win will be announced at 6:00 PM. Get there early!

Meet-Up Page:

Directions:  Train to the Relevancy Street Subway Stop

Location: Outside the Delancey "F" Subway Stop (Corner of Deleancy St and Essex St, New York NY)

Gathering Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Start Time: 5:30pm SHARP

Have a knack for friendly mischief and the art of prankster-ism?

Sick and tired of big PR campaigns telling how as a Nintendo Fan you are a child who is lame and uncool?

Love racing in Mario Kart 7?

Well we have an event for you! Welcome to our first Phase of PROJECT BABYSITTER, a series of civil and fun flash mob events where we get show that Nintendo fans are not the meek, quiet victim dorks that many think we are!

Our first task is very simple, we only have two requirements:

-- Bring your Nintendo 3DS*

-- Have a Nintendo-themed Hat (Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Pikmin, ect) that can be easily concealed or a Nintendo-themed T-Shirt that is covered entirely by a light jacket or similar outerwear.

*(We strongly encourage but we also welcome people who bring their Nintendo DS and your favorite game for it!)

No fancy dances or routines, simply wear that and bring your system outside to the Delancey Street F Train Stop (alternatively the Essex Street J, M, Z Stop and walk to Delancey) at 4:00 PM.

Our gathering ends at 5:00 PM SHARP and if you are late there will be a person at the stop who will direct you to the flash mob location. (Although warning, come too late and the festivities might have already ended!)

At 5:00 PM SHARP after briefing all who attend on our actions we will leave the train station area and walk to the flash mob location. We will enjoy awesome free snacks and drinks and bide our time with a lot of fun and chat.

At 6:00 PM however, we will start to do our flash mob and then continue to do it until we are (most likely) asked to leave.

Please be respectful to other people at the flash mob area and please cooperate with all authorities that we may encounter. There will be no trouble here, no arrest, nothing like that. Just some simple hilarious fun.

Then afterwards, we will walk around New York City and StreetPass hangout together!

So come on down. Bring yourself. Bring your Nintendo Shirt and/or Hat. Bring your Nintendo 3DS. Bring your game face.

We were inspired by these French Knights...

StreetPass NYC is excited to kick off the new year with a fresh coat of paint, letting all their fans out there with photoshop skills to create a NEW logo for the growing organization.

"We had an amazing first year in 2011", said Jordan White, Founder and Event Organizer of StreetPass NYC. "But we are expecting some truly big things to happen with the expansion of our community in 2012. To reflect on our new ambitions and goals, we set a challenge to the amazing talented artist in the Nintendo Community to help us design a new logo."

Plans Jordan White, Peter Ortiz and Leroy Sylva announced at a meeting last night included a StreetPass Network-wide podcast, online community bonding meetings dubbed "StreetPass VS", a bigger more interactive E3 party, Legend of Zelda 25 Anniversary Plans and a much more interactive and event filled stay at the New York Comic Con.
