For those unaware of how to get the SpotPass content, follow these guidelines:
(1) Make sure your 3DS can connect to the internet.
Consult your Nintendo 3DS Instruction Manual for detailed setup.
(2) Create additional data for DEAD OR ALIVE Dimensions
Follow on-screen instructions when you boot up the game and create additional data. In order to create additional data you will need an SD Card inserted into your 3DS. On the OPTIONS menu select NETWORK. From there you can check the settings for “StreetPass”, “Costumes” and “Notifications.” If these items are set to OFF, make sure you turn them ON so you can receive data.
(3) Waiting for the SpotPass to receive data
The timing of receiving data via SpotPass varies from user to user. If your settings are correct wait a bit and see whether the data has been received. If you still cannot receive the data, make sure you check your settings first.
(4) How to use new costumes
If you successfully manage to get the new costumes a confirmation message will be displayed on the MODE SELECT screen. You will be able to use the new costumes on the COSTUME SELECT screen. Costumes which are displayed as DOWNLOAD are the ones which were downloaded via SpotPass.
(5) Fighting against Challengers
You can use the Challenge data in the THROWDOWN mode to fight against your Challengers. When SP is displayed next to the name of the Challenger, this indicates the Challengers received via SpotPass.
