Kamp Krusty

It's summertime, so what do you want to do, kids! Play video games indoors, of course, video games that represent outdoor sports. Well, maybe just when it's raining.

Of course, some go off to summer camps, where personal hygiene is lost and uncomfortable bunk beds are the norm, which is why those camps are so awesome. As a result Nintendo of America's latest Miiverse activity aims to get you into the spirit with Camp Miiverse, which doesn't have any camping but has a whole lot of Miiverse. NintendoTom will post a game related challenge every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with the first two being single day events and the latter over the whole weekend, and gamers need to complete tasks, upload evidence and try and 'win' for their team. Confused? Don't be! Details from Tom are below.

As for the first challenge, it's underway and is all about Wii Sports Club: Baseball, as you need to score a home run in a proper match and then upload a screenshot to that game's page with the tag of your choice.

Hi campers!

Here’s the first challenge:
Hit a home run during a game in Wii Sports Club Baseball!

In either Online Game or Local Game, play and hit a home run!

Once you do, post a screenshot with the “Home Run” on the screen on the Wii Sports Club Community using either tags “Team Mario” or “Team Zelda”. Choose your team wisely!

You’ll have until this Sunday 7/20 at 11:59pm PT to post your screenshot proving you hit a home run.
We’ll tally up the results on Monday to see which team received more screenshots!

Some pointers:
+Keep in mind that the “Home Run” will only be displayed for a few seconds, so act fast!

+Remember that it has to be from either Online Game or Local Game! The screenshot has to have the scores and stats on the top corners,

+Make sure to post your screenshot to the Wii Sports Club community! I'll be posting my pic shortly.

+If you don’t own the full game, a time-limited demo is available for download on the Nintendo eShop.

Good luck campers, and and may the best team win!

We're not entirely sure you can actually post to Miiverse during an online match — oh, NintendoTom! — but it'll work in local matches against others or the CPU. A sample of what Nintendo's after is below.

There's no equivalent contest in Europe, so this is strictly in North America at the moment. Will you be going to Camp Miiverse? Is it better than Kamp Krusty? Time will tell.
