New 3DS Update Brings StreetPass Relay Functionality
Posted by Damien McFerran
6.2.0-12 available now in North America and Europe
Remember the StreetPass Relay function that Nintendo spoke about recently? The one where your StreetPass data is stored in Nintendo Zone locations and then exchanged with the next person to walk past? Well, that feature has just gone live thanks to firmware update 6.2.0-12 — now available in both North America and Europe.
As always, the update also comes with undisclosed improvements to system stability, as well as "minor adjustments" to "enhance the user experience".
We've just installed the update to our European 3DS XL, but have yet to test it at our local Nintendo Zone wireless point. Let us know if you're running 6.2.0-12 and have already benefited from some additional StreetPass hits by posting a comment below.
