Nintendo Announces StreetPass Weekend

Nintendo of America is planning to raise awareness and buzz around the concept of StreetPass and Nintendo Zone in the coming weekend—on December 14/15, the data stored in Nintendo Zone points, the ones that distribute StreetPass hits for the previous six visitors, will be mixed up around North America!

3DS owners will receive data from gamers all around the continent, rather than just from their local area.

We’re not really sure that StreetPass needs an “awareness” campaign—for many 3DS owners, it’s the best part of the system—but it sounds like a fun way to bring gamers together, perhaps getting together to go hunting for Nintendo Zones!

There’s also a trailer that advises you take your 3DS to social events—like, uh, a New Year’s Eve party—but all things considered, a hit is a hit!
