There's a Shiny New StreetPass Mii Plaza Update in Europe

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

The mystery update does something, right?

Update:

It seems that the purpose of the update has been identified by eagle-eyed members of the Nintendo Life community. The previous update removed the overall total figure in the counter for puzzle pieces collected, and now it's back. Photographic evidence is at the bottom of the article, thanks @Greenalink!

Original article:

It's time for the mystery 3DS update game, everyone! There's a fresh software update for StreetPass Mii Plaza in Europe, which has a whizzy download bar like a system update, yet we're not sure what it does. It's a thing alright, we know that much.

The update — now version 3.2 — may simply be to improve stability and security, as no obvious changes are there to be seen. Even after the update the DLC Bunny still has the annoying habit of only telling you about the combo pack pricing when you do a specific order of answers, for example, rather than right off the bat.

We'll assemble a crack team of software experts to figure out what the update's done, and at the time of writing it isn't available in North America; the region will need to wait a little for the delights of version 3.2.

Thanks to MK II for the tip.

It shows the amount of puzzle pieces you have over the amount you require in total.

ie 392/640 pieces.

It used to show your puzzle progress. Then it stopped in the update where they added the four new streetpass games, instead only showing the amount of pieces you have.

I would be very happy if they added it back.

I hope they will add the Miiverse and NNID's in the next system update

The previous update actually removed the grand total counter of the puzzle piece by accident.
This patch may have just added that feature back in. I'll post some direct feed screenshots of it both before and after the update.

Huh. Interesting. I did notice that it stopped showing an overall count for the puzzle pieces. I wonder how long it'll be until the US gets this one? ;)

@Nintenjoe64 Nintendo already announced a while back that the summer Wii U update was coming at the end of September or the start of October: http://bit.ly/1fuz9AW

Does anyone know what the summer Wii U update actually is though? I can't remember if they said what it will update in a Nintendo Direct earlier this year or not.

It is said it also removed a back on Mii Battle, where the game crashes if you recruit soldiers after you reached 9 999 999 soldiers.

Great. Now please do something to make the completion of those puzzles a bit easier, Ninty.

I seriously doubt it's anything astounding.

Perhaps they're just doing minor bug fixes, laying the groundwork for 2DS connections, and. . . you know. . . checking what type of system you're using so that the app can replace all the "3DS" text with "2DS" if necessary. ;)

That explains a lot; i was on puzzle swap the other day looking for the total and couldn't work out where I found it before, i decided i must have imagined it! Glad to know I haven't completely lost my marbles.
