StreetPass Mii Plaza has received a 4.0 update in Europe. You’ll need to grab the update directly from the app rather than through the eShop.

We’ll update this post when we confirm that the new content is live in North America.

Elliot Quest’s latest patch is out now. After applying the 1.2.1 update, players will find a much more stable experience.

The new Elliot Quest patch addresses an issue with the Graveyard area in which some players were getting stuck. Additionally, PlayEveryWare says that “A few other areas have been adjusted and tuned as well.”
