Mii Plaza Update

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Tuesday! Another week has come and gone.

This past weekend was Labor Day and Nintendo celebrated with an update for the Mii Plaza and declaring this past weekend a Streetpass Weekend!

 

Streetpass Weekend Mii Plaza Update Double Jump
Via Nintendo Everything
On the 3DS handheld, Nintendo updated the Mii Plaza with some interesting goodies for us. added five new Mii games to the Plaza. One of two of those games, Slot Car

First, they added five new Mii games to the Plaza. One of two of those games, Slot Car Rivals and Market Crashers, you can get for free. You have to buy the other three games, but you can choose the car game or the market game to get for free. Then you have to buy the other one.

Of course, the Mii games aren’t expensive, but I didn’t buy any of them right away. I downloaded Slot Car Rivals because it was free and it sounded more interesting than Market Crashers.

Second, they expanded the Plaza. Instead of getting a maximum of 10 Miis at a time, you can connect with up to 100 other Miis. This makes the experience a lot more fun since you can find more people at one time. Plus, it’ll make the games a lot easier and go by quicker. Like the puzzles, for example.

The puzzles had a “bonus” on them. So when you clicked on one piece, it would pick other pieces at random from that same puzzle to give to you in addition to the piece you picked. When I brought my 3DS to a Nintendo hotspot yesterday, I connected with 10 other Miis and ended up with 60 new puzzle pieces. The puzzles are my favorite, so I was very happy.

To celebrate this update, this past weekend was a Streetpass Weekend. I know I’m saying this late since the weekend is over, but I didn’t find out about this until Friday night.

But I’m sure most of you knew about it if you have your 3DS handy most of the time.

I hope you were all able to get many connections!

  1. I go to numerous anime conventions where lots of people bring their 3DS, so I actually love the StreetPass games and get a lot out of it. I was very excited when they announced the new games because that meant they were still supporting StreetPass after a time I had thought they were done with it. So far, my favorite game is a toss-up between Slot Car Rivals and Mii Trek. I like being able to build others’ cars so I hope others picked it up as a free game and made customizable cars for me to rebuild. They’re all shorter experiences than the older games, and they don’t give the usual Plaza Tickets as rewards, but they’re fun as diversions when you do get StreetPasses, which is nice.

    • I got Slot Car Rivals as my free game. I didn’t download any of the other games yet, though. I probably won’t for a little while, but the Mii Trek does look like a lot of fun!
      I’m glad they’re shorter, too because that’s why I’m not very far in some of the games. If I connect with a good amount of people, I’d be playing the Streetpass games for hours!

      • Right, I appreciate that the games themselves are shorter. Otherwise, how could I get through them if I am getting StreetPasses? I also love that going through the Plaza Gate is so much faster. Having VIP allow 100 people to be added to a line is icing on the cake!

      • You still have to put them in a line, 10 at a time, but you no longer have to play the games before getting more batches, which is great. You can technically pick up 100 StreetPasses, but play the games later, provided you have the VIP.
