StreetPass™ Relay Points


With StreetPass™ Relay Points you can now receive player data from Nintendo Zone locations, even if that player is no longer there.  When a 3DS user has Street Pass enabled, the Nintendo Zone location will temporarily store their StreetPass data, sending it out to the next StreetPasser that arrives at the location, assuming they have the same games.  According to Nintendo, this will help to make it easier to receive content on StreetPass enabled games like Fire EmblemAwakening and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

The following stipulations apply:

  1. You must have your 3DS updated to system version 6.2.0-xU or higher to take advantage of the StreetPass Relay Point service.
  2. You will not receive any StreetPass data from the relay station if you are the first person to pass it with whatever game you currently have inserted or if the relay station currently has your StreetPass data.
  3. Your wireless home network cannot be set up as a StreetPass Relay Point.
