National StreetPass Weekend 2017 Springs Into Action This Week
With the weather warming up across the country, Nintendo of America has announced that a National StreetPass Weekend will take place later this week.
That will run between Thursday 13th – Sunday 16th April 2017, and presents a chance for Nintendo 3DS owners to collect up to six StreetPass tags whenever they stop at a Nintendo Zone location.
Nintendo has used the occasion to promote StreetPass features in several Nintendo 3DS exclusives, which they have detailed below:
Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World
Design a whole new pattern for Yoshi, and then share your personalized Yoshi via StreetPass! Don’t forget, this game has a free demo, too!
Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS
You can use the StreetPass feature to share your favorite course with others—and get theirs in return.
Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo
Did you know that you can get special in-game furniture and items when you visit a Nintendo Zone location? In addition, you can get one item from Nintendo by in-game mail via the SpotPass feature! Get these special pieces and add these spring-themed pieces to your room:
- Cherry-blossom clock (Saturday 1st – Saturday 15th April 2017) in Nintendo Zone
- Taurus bathtub (Sunday 16th – Sunday 30th April 2017) in Nintendo Zone
- Lotus pond (from Post Office)
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Take pictures of people, places, and slimes throughout your journey, then show them off to other players through the StreetPass feature. Depending on the ratings you receive, your pics can earn fun photo embellishments for you to use, like filters, stamps, and more!
Dragon Ball Fusions
Dragon Ball Fusions offers the ability to use the Street Pass function! Activate StreetPass in Dragon Ball Fusions and select a Dragon Ball character you would like to fuse with others. After exchanging your StreetPass data with someone else, fuse the two characters together. You’ll be able to encounter other players’ StreetPass opponents and fight them (AI driven only).
You can use the StreetPass feature to share game stats with others—and see their stats in return. You can also earn one heart per five StreetPass occasions. Pokémon Shuffle is also giving away a special in-game gift every day for those who check-in until the promotion ends on April 18th!
Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns
With StreetPass enabled for Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns, farmer profiles and pet information are automatically shared between systems that get close to one another. Your pet may visit Westown in another farmer’s game, and you can talk to pets that visit your game to see a profile of their owner. Pets that visit other games will fetch items that can be collected from Dessie, the little green-haired goddess. The more farmers you exchange info with, the more items you will receive!
