  Nintendo News: Nintendo 3DS StreetPass Update Offers New Games, Outfits and
  Hats

REDMOND, Wash. -- July 12, 2013

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.
