Get Your Special Resident Evil Miis Now

Straight from Tokyo Games Show
Nintendo might have been a no-show at TGS this year, but there's still a neat little surprise for 3DS owners. Around the show floor, Capcom placed some special Resident Evil Revelations adverts, each bearing a QR code. Scan these with your 3DS and surprise — you get a special Mii with shiny gold trousers based on one of four characters from the game. Thankfully, a fan has taken photos of all codes and provided them on the magical world of the Internet.
Nintendo of Japan has been running special Mii promotions for some time, including handing out codes for Miis of well-known Japanese comedians and actors through its website, but oddly enough, these have all been region-restricted and can only been scanned with a Japanese 3DS.
No problems with these Resident Evil Miis though — their names will show up in Japanese, but North American and European 3DS consoles can scan them perfectly fine. Just take care not to accidentally delete them once you've scanned them, as these special codes can only be activated once.
If you're not quite sure how to scan QR codes, why not read our guide to using them?
