Nintendo Announces National Streetpass Weekend


Do you love passively sharing data on your Nintendo 3DS? If so, well Nintendo has got great news for you!

The company has announced that this weekend, December 14-15, will be the first-ever National StreetPass Weekend in North America. The company held a National Streetpass Day in the UK in September, but that was more restrictive, and required users to meet at a centralized location.

For National Streetpass Weekend, 3DS users just have to go to their local Starbucks, McDonald’s or Best Buy to partake in the data-sharing fun. So get those 3DS consoles fully charged and ready to go because National Streetpass Weekend is just a mere few days away!
