Today, Nintendo released an update for the Nintendo 3DS which adds new StreetPass functionality, and the addition of four StreetPass Mii Plaza games: StreetPass Squad, StreetPass Garden, StreetPass Battle and StreetPass Mansion. All four will be available to purchase after updating your system.
- In StreetPass Squad players blast their way through enemies in a scrolling space shooter with the help of StreetPass characters.
- StreetPass Garden challenges players to grow a garden of flowers and cross-pollenate them with the plants of visitors that they meet through StreetPass.
- Players collect troops through StreetPass in StreetPass Battle, clashing with other warlords to take over the world.
- StreetPass Mansion lets players design and explore a multi-level mansion using rooms and hallways received from StreetPass characters. Completing accomplishments within these four additional games unlock new full-body outfits and hats for their Mii characters.
Furthermore, save data for most downloadable Nintendo 3DS and Virtual Console software can be backed up and restored via an SD card.
