National StreetPass Week: E3 Edition

StreetPass is one of those features that's cool in concept, but doesn't always pan out quite the same in reality. The main barrier here is that people who live in less densely populated areas are obviously less likely to happen across somebody else who also has a 3DS. Fortunately, the feature has never been much more than a nice bonus to some games, but Nintendo is gearing up to assist those who have been struggling mightily to collect all of those pesky puzzle pieces.

Starting on 10th June and lasting until the 19th, a National StreetPass Weekend will be in effect to celebrate the E3 reveal of the new Legend of Zelda. Anyone who walks within range of one of the many Nintendo Zones around the region during this week will be able to receive up to six StreetPasses at once. Hopefully, this should help out with the aforementioned puzzle pieces, or if you're looking to fill out the full sticker collection in Kirby: Planet Robobot.
