Nintendo has confirmed it is still committed to the StreetPass function of the 3DS by announcing during an analyst briefing at E3 that it is creating thousands of new StreetPass relay stations across the US and Europe.
The company plans to turn 28,000 Wi-Fi access points into relays in the US, while Europe is set to see 24,000.
This could vastly improve the functionality of the 3DS and could enable players to find more Miis in their Mii Plaza. Nintendo has been sending a few familiar faces to people's 3DS systems, including Eiji Aonuma and Hideki Konno, during E3 via SpotPass.
