Nintendo Announces StreetPass Weekend This Thanksgiving Weekend November 24, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
Across the country, Nintendo offers free wireless hotspots, called Nintendo Zone locations, for 3DS users. Usually you can find Nintendo Zone hotspots in various McDonald’s, Barnes and Noble Bookstores, AT&T retail stores, and Best Buy locations across the US. These hotspots not only offer Internet access to Nintendo handhelds, they also help players obtain StreetPass tags from the hotspot’s previous users.
Nintendo has just announced that this weekend they’re going to be shaking things up and offering random StreetPass tags to anyone who visits any active Nintendo Zone location all weekend long. That means that instead of getting access to the StreetPass tags of the previous six visitors to the hotspot when you connect to it, you’ll receive random StreetPass tags from players all over the country! This is perfect for any players who need to fill up their StreetPass plaza with new tags!
Don’t forget, this weekend Nintendo is also offering a special distribution to Pokémon Trainers by offering the legendary Pokémon Hoopa to anyone who visits a Nintendo Zone equipped McDonald’s with a copy of Pokémon X/Y or Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire starting November 27th. You can get it by accessing the game’s gift menu while connected to the hotspot.
