    StreetPass Quest begins with your Mii trapped in a tower. To escape, you must use Miis you have collected via StreetPass and battle increasingly powerful enemies in turn-based combat. If you haven’t collected any Miis then you’re able to purchase a cat in armour to act as a substitute. You purchase this cat with two game coins, which have been previously detailed. The cat has two attack options: sword and magic.

    Richard guesstimated that there were about 16-32 different levels you could work your way through and you’ll need to battle with each enemy about 2-3 times to match their power. You can fight your way through the game with up to three Miis at a time. Failed attempts at rescuing your Mii from the tower are met with details about enemies you have defeated and the remaining health of enemies who you’ve tried to take on but failed to take down, so it sounds like this quest will require an investment over time, rather than just a single sitting.

    The goal of StreetPass Puzzle is to construct a 3D puzzle. But to complete this puzzle you need to collect pieces by interacting with other folks via StreetPass. The more people you interact with, the more puzzle pieces you gain until you can finally complete the puzzle. Richard was unable to test this game out fully however as it does rely on StreetPass interaction which he lacked.

    I think that this has a lot of potential to be something fun. I've never seen anything like it!

    EDIT: For those of you who want to know, Richard is a lucky user who got his hands on the new unit and is graciously testing it for the good of the internet!

    Wait, are you being serious?

    StreetPass is a wifi program made by Nintendo to transfer stuff while 3DS is in sleep mode.

    This game is just using it and put the name in as part of it title.

    In low-density areas these may take a while to finish. [​IMG]

    Nice idea though; not sure how much it'll get used in some places, though I imagine it might be more commonly used in Japan.

    Forgot the proper word, but basely link 3DS' with other 3DS' while in sleep mode and transfer stuff. Is that better?

    He was talking about the cartridge games for the 3DS. The built in stuff? He wasn't talking about it.

    He talking about small cheap disposable games being bad for the business. these two games are small and cheap thus makes them disposable. They are also social based. These games sound similar to free social games found on facebook. Reggi has been known to talk down at FB-games as well. Thus Nintendo is making him look very hypocritical.
