The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses Tour Finally Comes to Salt Lake City


Finally, after putting on concerts since the Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary tour back in 2011, The Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses Master Quest concert tour will finally be making a stop at Abravenal Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday, October 15, 2015.

The symphony is a one-of-a-kind experience, and has changed a little bit with each year the concert has been performing. Regarding what we will see in October, the official press release has this to say: 
"Featuring brand new music and visuals, including pieces from the recently remastered The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D and the addition of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the concert series will maintain the beloved experience fans have come to expect while remaining the ultimate Zelda experience currently available to fans."
Do you plan on going to the event and want to connect with others who are? Head over to the Facebook event page that we created, RSVP, and there we will post any updates about the concert that come up. You're also welcome to post and chat with other excited Zelda fans and maybe find a friend or two who you can buy seats with so you can sit by someone you know at the show.

Tickets for the concert will be available for purchase starting at 10:00 a.m., Friday, March 27th through ArtTix, so be ready!  For more information about the Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses concert tour, head to http://www.zelda-symphony.com.

Introducing Utah 3DS Gaming Corner


We're happy to formally introduce the official Facebook Group page for Utah 3DS StreetPass: Utah 3DS Gaming Corner, a great places to chat about video games, hear about local events from Utah 3DS and other communities, and even find friends to play online games with. Utah 3DS has wanted an area for members to be able to continue talking to each other outside of our monthly events, and this Facebook Group is a great for that.

Utah 3DS Gaming Corner will be a closed Facebook group, meaning that anyone can search for the group and request to join the group, but must be approved by admins of the group first. If you think you know someone who would like to join the group, add them, and the admins will add them!

The new Facebook group will also be the new home for discussion topics that will appear on GAME & LISTEN, Utah 3DS's weekly Nintendo podcast. We'll post different news items and topics to the page throughout the week asking for people's thoughts and opinions which we will read during our show. 

Anyone that is apart of the group is welcome to make a post. Wanting to play a match of Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros? Share your NNID or Friend Code and ask if anyone wants to join you! Have something you'd like to discuss with the group, like "What's your favorite Zelda game?" or "What was the first Nintendo system you ever owned?" Ask away! We're even open to people trying to sell their old games or amiibo, but we will be monitoring these posts very closely and will be listing to the community for feedback on any suspicious activity. 

If you've been a member of any of other Utah 3DS Facebook groups for specific games, please note that Utah 3DS Gaming Corner is consolidating all of these groups, so please join the new group as we will be shutting those down at the end of the month. 

Ready to join the group? Head over to the Facebook Group page, ask to join, and join in the conversation!
