"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 amazingly 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.
