June 25 is National 3DS StreetPass Day

June 25 is National 3DS StreetPass Day

US gamers often miss out on features like tag mode or streepass, because the US is far less densely populated than Japan, and as a general rule, we don’t use public transportation nearly as much.  Nintendo realize this, so they’ve designated June 25 National 3DS StreetPass Day, and are encouraging 3DS owners around the country to coordinate meetups so that everyone can benefit from exchanging StreetPass data for various 3DS games and applications.

MeetUp is one tool Nintendo is using to help promote StreetPass groups, and if there isn’t one in your area, you can easily start one up: http://www.meetup.com/nintendo3ds/.  Nintendo is also encouraging users to utilize the “#streetpass” hashtag in social media to help promote StreetPass meet ups.

Keep in mind that none of these events are sponsored by Nintendo, simply encouraged by them to benefit 3DS owners throughout the US.
