StreetPass Mii Plaza Update Offers New Games, Outfits and Hats
The StreetPass Mii Plaza application is expanding with a free update that adds touch-screen controls, a new layout and four new games available for purchase. Nintendo 3DS owners will also receive new expressions and greeting options for their StreetPass Mii characters with this free update, along with new panels for Puzzle Swap.
Nintendo 3DS owners who connect wirelessly to the Internet will also be able to buy new StreetPass games that they can play with other Nintendo 3DS owners as they go about their day. The games are now available for purchase from within the application at $4.99 apiece, or $14.99 for all four. The games are:
- - Mii Force: Players use StreetPass Mii characters to blast their way through enemies and keep the galaxy peaceful.
- - Flower Town: Players plant seeds in their virtual gardens. When players StreetPass with other players, their plants are watered. Cross-pollination can lead to new breeds.
- - Warrior's Way: Players use StreetPass to recruit troops and amass an army to unify a country.
- - Monster Manor: Players collect StreetPass Mii characters that bring new pieces of floor. Players can then create rooms, fight ghosts and unlock treasure chests in a climb to the top of the mansion.
Players who complete various accomplishments in the games earn tickets that they can redeem in the redesigned StreetPass Mii Plaza to unlock dozens of new outfits or hats for their StreetPass Mii characters. New outfit options include a full-body Luigi Costume, a Yoshi's Egg Hat, a Super Mushroom Hat and a Super Star Hat. The selection of outfits and hats changes every day, and the old hats are still available by playing Find Mii.
Four new panels for Puzzle Swap will also be released at the same time as the update. Each Nintendo 3DS user will receive one random new panel and will have to interact with other Nintendo 3DS owners via StreetPass to receive the other three.
