Nintendo 3DS Global Gathering Aims to Keep StreetPass Alive

Nintendo 3DS Global Gathering Aims to Keep StreetPass Alive

With the imminent closure of the 3DS eShop, laptop fans are rallying to celebrate one of its best but most overlooked features: StreetPass.

StreetPass was, and is, a feature that allows 3DS systems to communicate passively when in close proximity to each other. You might bump into another 3DS owner down the street, and when you open the console later you’ll bump into their Mii avatar, find their Time Trial ghosts in your copy of Mario Kart, and get a new puzzle piece in a huge collection of puzzles. mini game.

It always seemed like a feature designed for Japan’s densely populated urban cities, and if, like me, you’ve spent your 3DS life in rural America or the suburbs, you may not have taken full advantage of it. Street Pass. Still, it’s still one of the coolest features on one of Nintendo’s best platforms, and a loyal group of fans aim to keep it alive.

streetwalklove (opens in a new tab) have been helping organize StreetPass meetups for a while, and now they’re working to promote a huge weekend for 3DS fans around the world. Billed as StreetPass Revival 2023, the idea is simply to get everyone who is still using their 3DS to head to a meeting place that suits them, whether it’s a park, a game store local or a larger convention.

If you have to feel curious about StreetPass pero no tienes gente con ideas sones en tu área local, también debo mencionar que ha habito muchos proyectos de fans a lo largo de los años que tienen como objetivo permitirte conectarte con otros entusiastas de StreetPass a través of internet. Proyectos como PiPass (se abre en una pestaña nueva) allows you to configure your access points for StreetPass to connect with all of the world, aunque, hay que admisirlo, eso no ofrece los social benefits de pasar tiempo con otros fans de 3DS in person.

The Completionist’s $20,000 mission to preserve the Nintendo eShop This shouldn’t be necessary, but it might be the only legal way to save these games.
