Enable the StreetPass™ feature on the 3DS™ & 2DS™ systems to enjoy a simple and safe way to swap Mii character info and game data, known as StreetPass Tags. Just set your system to Sleep Mode and carry it with you wherever you go—you’ll tag any people nearby who’ve done the same thing.
The next time you check your system, head to the StreetPass Mii Plaza gate, where you can exchange pre-set greetings with collected Miis and start playing. Up to 10 Mii characters at a time can enter the plaza to collect puzzle pieces and help you earn cool hats and costumes in StreetPass games. Plus, you can take advantage of special features in many games that let you battle other players, use their characters to help you in your own game, collect items and more.
Looking for more StreetPass data? Head to any Nintendo Zone location to use a StreetPass Relay Point and you’ll get StreetPass Mii Plaza data from the last six visitors to visit that location. It’s a great way to connect with other StreetPass users—even if you don’t have the chance to meet in person. For additional information, please visit our support page.
