In a Nintendo Direct Mini today, Nintendo announced that 3DS owners will have a new way to Streetpass. Nintendo Zone will now support a new form of player connection that works like a relay race.

When you visit a Nintendo Zone location with your 3DS, you'll Streetpass with the last person who visited. These are located at Simon Malls, AT&T stores, Best Buy locations, and more. The next person who visits will get your Streetpass data. Executive editor Andy Reiner recently discussed his rekindled love with Streetpassing on his blog.


Our Take
For those in less populated cities, this is a great way to get new puzzle pieces, conquer Find Mii, and build your stable for the new Mii Plaza titles.
