Camp Miiverse 2015


Nintendo’s Camp Miiverse 2015 has begun, and it has taken over the Play Nintendo Community from July 7th – July 20th. You can find this community in the Miiverse Communities page (scroll to the bottom and you’ll find it in the special communities section). This summer’s activities are split into two teams once again (Team Yoshi vs. Team Toad). Camp instructors Amy and Tom will be posting challenges and events into this community. As you can see from the banner image above, other games will include Mario Kart 8, and plenty more.

Anyone who owns the game in question for a given event/challenge can take part in it. The Miiverse post for the first challenge states that all you have to do to participate is complete the challenge and post a screenshot to prove you did indeed complete it. You also need to include either #TeamToad or #TeamYoshi to specify which team you’re playing for.

Team Yoshi vs Team Toad!


The first of this summer’s challenges are already up (they are for Splatoon and Animal Crossing: New Leaf). The Splatoon challenge involves getting a rank of Smokin’ or higher while playing online battles. This challenge is open until 10AM PT on Wednesday, July 8th. The Animal Crossing: New Leaf challenge involves catching yourself a shark. There are four types of sharks in the game: regular shark, whale shark, saw shark, and hammerhead shark. Since whale sharks are rarer, you can net your team extra points should you manage to catch one! This challenge runs until 10AM PT on Thursday, July 9th.

So, will you join Camp Miiverse 2015? Will play for Team Toad or Team Yoshi, or will you just be a spectator and root for one? Hopefully the former, because your team needs you! So get out there and help your team kick butt in all of the events and challenges of Camp Miiverse 2015!



About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
