Nintendo 3DS StreetPass Day
Today is the anniversary of Nintendo’s StreetPass Day. For those of you who don’t have a 3DS, StreetPass is a way to trade data from one 3DS to another by being in the same area as someone with another 3DS. It’s used to enhance games like Mario Kart 7, where you can race the ghost data of someone who has the game, or Kid Icarus: Uprising, where you can gain extra weapons from other people who you StreetPass. One year ago, to take advantage of one of the features of the Nintendo 3DS’ features, StreetPass…Nintendo of America created a Meetup event so everyone all over the nation could get together with other 3DS owners and exchange StreetPasses with a large group of people.
To celebrate this here in Arizona, 3DS community StreetPass Arizona, a group dedicated to 3DS meetups and gatherings held an event yesterday to do just that, gather a large group of 3DS owners to exchange StreetPasses, play games together and eat at the local restaurant, Republic Ramen in Tempe, AZ.
As you can see, there was a very high turnout as everyone spent their time meeting new and old friends, Swapnoting and playing games like Kid Icarus: Uprising, Mario Tennis Open and other games. (See if you can pick out which 3DS belongs to me…and no cheating by going to StreetPass Arizona’s Facebook page, where you can like it to keep track and find out about other Streetpass events that are in the Arizona).
