Nintendo Announces StreetPass Weekend Starting Tomorrow February 12, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
An awesome feature of the Nintendo 3DS family of handheld devices is the ability to swap Miis from other 3DS players wirelessly when two units come in close proximity. The Miis can then be used to assist you in several games. However, it can be difficult for many to find other 3DS players consistently, and without StreetPasses, some games were far more difficult to complete. To remedy this, Nintendo installed StreetPass hotspots in tons of participating businesses, like McDonalds, Starbucks and Best Buy locations. Each hotspot offers 3DS units free WiFi internet access without the need to set up anything and the StreetPass tags of the last six 3DS owners to use the hotspot.
In previous holidays, Nintendo mixed things up and moved Miis all over the world. For a single weekend, you could download Miis from all across your region to your 3DS just by visiting a Nintendo Zone location. This weekend Nintendo is doing it again. In honor of Valentine’s Day weekend, starting tomorrow all Nintendo StreetPass hotspots will be mixing Miis up, and you can expect to get as many as six StreetPass tags from all over the region on your Nintendo handheld. Don’t forget, you earn special 3DS awards for having a diverse StreetPass library of Miis!
StreetPass Weekend will be taking place February 13th-15th, 2015.
