The T-shirts are designed to match the “Flower Print” T-shirt (White) that you can currently get as a Mii character item when you join a Flower Planting Weekly Challenge!
- Users will be required to show their game screen for the purpose of verifying the amount of steps walked.
- Valid while stocks last. Presents will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Event is rain or shine, but it may be canceled if severe weather conditions occur. Please check our Twitter support account (@Niantichelp) for announcements on the day of the event.
