3DS firmware update 6.2.0-12E adds StreetPass Relay feature

If you’re a Nintendo 3DS owner in Europe, North America or Japan, head into the ‘Other’ section of your 3DS’s system settings and select “System Update” to download the latest firmware update.

It’ll introduce a brand-new StreetPass relay system, meaning your 3DS notification light will shine green upon entering any Nintendo Zone hotspot – even if there’s no other 3DS owners within range. Your handheld will download the data of the previous person that visited the hotspot, while your own data will be uploaded for the next.

A handy way to grab extra Miis for those new StreetPass Mii Plaza games – do you see yourself making the extra effort to pass a Nintendo Zone hotspot more regularly now?
