Wow there's an event in DC? There's rarely any events around here; glad to see some.

Wait, is it an independent group of people forming streetpass tournaments-type of thing, or is this an officially sponsored by Capcom event? I think both are pretty cool, but I think the former I mentioned is better, than the latter.

Edit: Yes, I read over, & see "independent". That's cool!

So all I can do with Duo mode is global. :/
