StreetPass Mii Plaza

Another new Mii is being out to 3DS owners via SpotPass today. Hiromada Shikata is the latest addition, and can be accessed via the StreetPass Mii Plaza.


Another new Mii is making its way out to North American 3DS owners. Nintendo is sending out the “BBY Kyle” Mii as a means to promote the activities taking place at Best Buy this weekend.

For those who haven’t already heard, eight select stores will be hosting the Nintendo World Championships 2015 qualifying events on May 30. All Best Buy locations will also have National StreetPass Weekend going.

The 4.1 update for StreetPass Mii Plaza is now available in North America. You may recall that Japan received this patch a couple of weeks back. It doesn’t do much, but it should address bugs and make things more stable.


3DS owners who are connected to the Internet and have SpotPass enabled should be seeing a new guest in the StreetPass Mii Plaza soon. Nintendo has sent out the Regginator. Of course, that’s Reggie Fils-Aime, the president of Nintendo of America.


Nintendo has pushed out updates for the StreetPass Mii Plaza and Girls Mode 3 in Japan.

StreetPass Mii Plaza has now been patched to version 4.1. The update is all about addressing unnamed bugs and improving stability. At the moment, it’s not available in either North America or Europe.

The new version of Girls Mode 3 is now 1.1.0. This addresses a couple of things. First, Nintendo fixed a bug which gave the wrong western-style cloth when purchasing one from hangers or torsos inside other players’ StreetPass rooms or inside a room which Kimi gave. Nintendo also fixed display names for various transparent hangers and transparent torsos.

Update: It’s now coming into question whether banned users are being blocked due to using flashcards. I can’t confirm it either way at the moment, but you should definitely be cautious in any case. This entire situation is one big mess!

Earlier today, rumors surfaced about The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess possibly coming to the 3DS. That speculation came about after images surfaced which showed people meeting someone in the StreetPass Mii Plaza who had supposedly been playing the “remake” – see below.


We didn’t post about the rumor as we had a pretty strong feeling that it was fake. Sure enough, it was. One 3DS owner managed to hack his system, which allows for any image/text he wants to appear as his recently-played game.

This wouldn’t be a problem for other 3DS users in most circumstances. However, many folks encountered the person with the hacked system at the Zelda Symphony Concert in Germany today. A ton of people attended the event, and many fans brought along their 3DS units in hopes of receiving some StreetPass hits. Unfortunately, you may have a fairly big problem on your hands if you happened to have conducted StreetPass with the hacked system.

We’re hearing reports that every user who received that person’s Mii and attempts to load the Twilight Princess 3D eShop page (which doesn’t exist of course) is being blocked¬†from online services. This could affect quite a number of European 3DS owners who attended the Zelda concert earlier in the day. I’d imagine affected users would need to contact Nintendo in hopes of being unbanned. If you did come in contact with the Mii, be sure to delete it from the StreetPass Mii Plaza!
