Only a couple more days to enjoy Streetpass Week

Did you notice the influx of international looking people into your Mii Plaza? Even got some familiar faces in golden pants through your gates? A week ago the International Streetpass week kicked off with a visit of Reggie Fils-Aime in my American 3DS, And my little Mii was pleased to see a lot of people from various US States, normally she is quite a lonely US resident here in the Netherlands.

The event started with the system update that made two new Streetpass games available, StreetPass Fishing / Ultimate Angler and StreetPass Zombies / Battleground Z, in addition to the StreetPass Mii Plaza Premium option that adds some extra Mii features. Did you see the lovely speach bubble graphics that you can collect (using the coupons in your Mii Plaza) for the message that your Mii blurts out to the world? Love them!

If you haven’t participated yet in the fun, you still have till April 27th to do so. Here are the specifics:Heading to the right locations in Europe gives you access to a Mii for Nintendo of Europe President Satoru Shibata, in addition to a free 3DS HOME Menu Theme. European locations where you will find these are:

  • Germany: McDonald’s
  • UK: GAME
  • Italy: McDonald’s, Gamelife , VideoGamesParty Home
  • Spain: GAME
  • Benelux: Game Mania, MANGAKISSA

When you stop by a Nintendo Zone location in the US or Canada, you can collect up to six Mii characters from across Europe, the United States and Canada. McDonald’s and Best Buy are well known locations to collect the special characters from all over Europe.

Getting a hold of the special 3DS Home Menu Theme might be a bit of a chore, because it’s not available at the much more widely available KPN hotspots here in the Netherlands. But at least it’s fun to see all those international visitors in my Mii Plaza!


  1. I have to say that I don’t play games on the go, but I take my Japanese and my European 3DSes with me if I see the remote chance of getting a StreetPass hit.

    I don’t eat at McDonald’s but you can see me walking in and out of one just for Nintendo StreetPass. ^____^
    The most fun is if you are in a different country though, so that the hits are “real”.

    It’s the one thing I hope they will keep for their next handheld platform.
    It’s a pretty simple application, but it’s always nice to be reminded that there are gamers all around the world who share their passionfor the hobby.

    1. I love that too! We travel abroad quite a bit for the holidays, and I always have one or two DS’s with me, just for the chance of seeing the little green light. I too have been seen traversing a restaurant a couple of times hooping for a hit! It’s what I miss in the Vita, no way to connect in this way with other gamers! Especially now that Near will be abandoned.

  2. Hey there, I recently street-passed you and found your blog (from your personal greeting). I imagine we crossed paths in Utrecht perhaps? In any case, greetings from a fellow American living in the NL!

    1. Well., how cool is that! Utrecht is very much a possibility, I travel there twice a week for work. Actually, I’m not American, my grind from Oklahoma was kind enough to send it to me. Back then more games were released in the U.S. that took years coming to Europe. But you yourself are an American living in the Netherlands? Do you like it here?
