Just like the title says, and I swear I've got plenty of proof for this.
A bit of background first though: I religiously play a Japanese made mobile puzzle rpg called Puzzle and Dragons, I've played this for about 7 years now. Back in 2015, the company (Gungho) partnered with Nintendo to make a 3DS version called Puzzle and Dragons X + Puzzle and Dragons Mario edition, I'm sure some of you have heard of this and saw the release.
Well, Gungho released a tournament for this game where you submit a score, and top 12 scores compete in LA for a chance to win a trip to Japan. I placed 9th in the former, so me and my mother flew down to LA so I could compete. At the LA competition, I placed 3rd, and top four won the trip. So early 2016, my mother and I flew to Japan this time, and I competed in the Puzzle and Dragons International Tournament along with three other Americans. Side note, we all got absolutely crushed. I think we were all out by the second round.
Regardless, the prize just for making it was a custom made 3DS with the date and name of the tournament. Along with that, they actually gave us 2. One was standard, and I actually used that as my 3DS for awhile. The other though, was signed by Shigeru Miyamoto himself (pictures will be below).
I'm not looking to sell these by any means, and not necessarily bragging either, I just think this is super neat and I don't think a lot of people know about it. I'm pretty sure there's less than 100 of these consoles that exist, so the fact I posses two is fascinating. I'm bringing this up now because a friend of mine sent me this video "
", and if you skip to 9:45, there's a rundown of the event and the 3DS consoles. Also, if you watch until 11:10, there's actually a clip from the LA tournament, and that dweeby 15 year old kid in the rock paper scissors shirt is yours truly. (I really wore that on a livestream, ouch).
But anyways, here's proof:
Let me know what you guys think, and if I can help provide any more proof, because trust me I understand how crazy this sounds
Edit: Wow thanks everyone for the positive response!! Thanks for the kind words, the upvotes, the awards, everything. This story means so much to me and I'm really glad I can share it with everyone. If you have any questions please let me know! I will try to respond to all/most comments best I can.
Edit 2: Hey guys real quick! I just want to specify that I did almost solely make this post because of the Did You Know Gaming video posted this weekend. I don’t mind at all getting multiple people saying they saw this console on there, I just may not respond to all of them because it’s a lot of repeat comments.
