E3 2011 Street Pass extravaganza!
For those of you that were fortunate enough to pick up a Nintendo 3DS, I'm sure you can agree that the Street Pass feature, alone, can carry the system. Now, I know that I just made a bold statement, but I am so addicted to Street Pass, and every 3DS owner will concur. For those of you that don't quite understand what Street Pass is, I'll sum it up for you. The Nintendo 3DS has a feature where it can detect other 3DS's around the area and allows for your Mii's to travel to other 3DS's. Nintendo has created a Plaza where all Mii's that you have gathered are stored. There is a green light indicator that lets you know when other Miiis have traveled into your Plaza. Nintendo has given every 3DS owner two Street Pass experiences that allow all the Mii's, that you have gathered, to take part in. Puzzle Swap is where you are given a panel and as you meet strangers, they give you puzzle pieces to complete it. The other, which is my favorite, is called Find Mii, some what of an RPG adventure. Your Mii gets captured and all the Mii's you gather fight ghosts, knights, and demons to help you escape. Most 3DS owners haven't quite completed these mini games, but since my wife and I own one, we Street Pass each other all the time. I was so excited to see what a Street Pass experience would be like at E3, with all the 3DS's running around. After the first day at E3, I totally completed all the mini games and kept running out of battery dumping all the Mii's I'd collect. I ended up with a total of 266 Mii's. It could've been more, but it only allows you to pick up 10 at a time and I didn't have time to dump 10 as soon as I'd collect em. Here's a short video of my 3DS after E3.
