US: Nintendo Announce 3DS Spring 2017 National StreetPass Event For This Weekend

If you’re the owner of a 3DS but also struggling to pry away from playing Zelda on the big screen then it may be worth heading outside to a Nintendo Zone this weekend. Nintendo are offering players six StreetPass tags when you pass a Nintendo Zone giving you access to more digital goodies than normal.

From April 13th-16th, collect up to six StreetPass tags from across North America when you stop by a Nintendo Zone™ location with your Nintendo 3DS™ family system.

While you’re out and about enjoying the warmer weather, be sure to take advantage of the cool StreetPass features in these popular games:

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 (4/1-4/15) in Nintendo Zone
Taurus bathtub (4/16-4/30) 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).

Pokémon Shuffle

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 4/18!


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!

  1. The last few games that came out for 3DS have been so negligible, I almost forgot it was still getting games.

    Still, I might need to find a way to milk this- need to progress through those newer Streetpass games like Slot Car Rivals and Market Crashers, yo.

  2. I wish I could say I’ll miss this feature. I loved the games in the plaza, but I never, ever crossed paths with anyone for Streetpass tags. And going to a specific hotspot was kind of lame.

  3. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits at Sony PlayStation 4! Please, Nintendo! Blow me off of the fence at E3 onto your side so I can say the same for Switch, too!}

    A shame Streetpass was only ever really more for the Japanese than those of us outside of that country.
