Get ready for a frightful holiday as Halloween creeps ever closer. Nintendo announced on their Nintendo YouTube channel “National StreetPass Weekend” for Halloween. This holiday starts on October 31 and will end on November 2.
There are several thousand Nintendo Zones around North America for you to visit and collect StreetPass data as you venture out and explore. National StreetPass events allow gamers to collect StreetPass data from other Nintendo 3DS users not only your local areas but from all over North America.
During wonderful National StreetPass Weekend, 3DS owners can visit a Nintendo Zone location — you can find one near you using Nintendo’s website for details. Some of the areas where you can visit Nintendo Zones are:
If you’re not able to go out and these areas, you still get StreetPass data at home. Just follow these easy steps or look at your Nintendo 3DS owner’s manual for details.
And then you’ll be all done. If your still having trouble connecting, try turning off your Nintendo 3DS and then turn it back on. Also remember that the StreetPasses event resets it counter every six hours. Which means, you can 24 StreetPass’s per day until the November 2nd.
National StreetPass Weekend starts 10/31
