Super Mario 3D Land to include StreetPass Time Attack mode

You’ll be able to compete with passers by, as Nintendo have revealed that Super Mario 3D Land is to incorporate a Time Attack mode with StreetPass functionality.

Discussing the challenges of designing StreetPass features for Mario’s latest outing, within the latest Iwata Asks column, director Koichi Hayashida commented: “To be honest, it was so hard that at one point we gave up, but Koizumi-san said he definitely wanted to put it in.”

He continued, “After you clear the normal stages, you unlock the Time Attack mode and can see the times of people you have passed and determine whose skill level is like yours. You have a friendly race with people about your level and enjoy shaving away your times.”

“This time, you can even pass by people who don’t have the game!” he added. “If you pass by someone’s Mii character someplace like the StreetPass Mii Plaza application, you can receive an item from that Mii character at Toad’s house. If you pass by the same Mii character again, you get something better.”
