New 3DS update brings promises of more StreetPasses
There’s a new 3DS firmware update, version 6.2.0-12U, which introduces the much anticipated StreetPass Relay feature, along with the usual stability/anti-piracy (probably) tweaks.
Now whenever you come across a Nintendo Zone with your 3DS — e.g. Starbucks, McDonalds, Barnes & Noble, AT&T retail stores, etc. — your system will download the last passerby’s StreetPass info, and upload your details for the next person that comes along.
Maybe this way, those of us in non-major metropolitan areas will finally be able to get more than just two or three new visitors to our HH Showcases each month in Animal Crossing: New Leaf!
