National StreetPass Update Weekend

Nintendo is hosting another StreetPass weekend. What does that mean? Well, simply carry your 3DS with you everywhere you go to nab more StreetPasses. You’ll want to try and swing by a Nintendo Zone hotspot. Usually places like McDonalds and Best Buy will have StreetPass distribution. With all of the new StreetPass games, this could be the perfect opportunity to play them.


New games and features have arrived on the StreetPass™ Mii Plaza™ application—so we’re celebrating with a StreetPass Update Weekend! Now through 11:59 p.m. PT on 9/5, bring your Nintendo 3DS™ family system to a hotspot near you to collect StreetPass tags.

Your new StreetPass tags will come in handy for the latest games. You can download either Slot Car Rivals or Market Crashers for FREE, with more games available for purchase. To make sure you get the update, visit your StreetPass Mii Plaza today. And for more information on all the games, visit this page.

This update also lets you store 100 Mii™ characters at the Plaza Gate with the purchase of Mii Plaza™ premium content, so be sure to bring your system along if you’re going to PAX West!

You can also use those StreetPass tags in tons of other games, including:

Style Savvy™: Fashion Forward: Swap showrooms with other players and see their characters show up in your store via StreetPass.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire: You can make your own Secret Base and share it with others using StreetPass.

Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y: Don’t forget, you can receive Victini via the Nintendo Network from September 1 to 24, 2016. Be victorious with Victini! For more details, click here.

Monster Hunter Generations: Collect tickets via StreetPass to access special Deviant monster quests. Players can also send and receive customizable guild cards. And new DLC is now available!
