Cleared all 50 StreetPass Challenges in A Link Between Worlds!

Now I only need the stupid Cucco to 100% the game...

But it's really nice. If you clear all 50 challenges, you are able to battle Gramps whenever you want. He will have the best possible gear and two random items to provide a nice challenge. The battles are really fun, I wish you could play this mode with other people online. The fighting system with the energy gauge is really great and I could see this working in multiplayer just fine.

How did I get all 50 medals in just three days? Well, I used the golden 3DS XL and my second copy of the game to set up three dummy savegames with weak Shadow Links. It's easy to kill them and score the more difficult challenges. Yes, I cheated, but I wanted to know what the reward will be.

Shadow Links also appear randomly after a certain amount of play time for anyone, who doesn't get StreetPass hits. But that is taking way too long, where the game should offer you the possibility to buy Shadow Links with Play Coins from Gramps. That's what Play Coins are meant for after all.

I'll also submitted a StreetPass Guide to GameFAQs with all medals, arenas, strategies, etc. Should be online tomorrow, unless someone beat me to it.

I am playing now A Link Between Worlds Hero Mode and I have heard that there is something "extra" in Lorule. Do you know what it is?

TourianTourist said...

Yes, if you go for all items, it's hard to miss... ^^

If you upgrade your items, lets say the Bombs, will you still be able to complete the 'Use the Bombs to deal the final blow!' challenge? Or will you only be able to complete the 'Use the Nice Bombs to deal the final blow!' challenge?

You will clear both challenges for the normal and upgraded items at once. You can't miss any challenges.
