Neat built-in 3DS StreetPass games and options detailed

Neat built-in 3DS StreetPass games and options detailed photo



There's some built-in games that use the 3DS' StreetPass pass-by communication functionality. One is called Street Pass Quest, and it's a turn-based battle game where you'll work to rescue your Mii. You'll actually use Miis you've acquired via StreetPass to battle baddies to get to deeper stages to get to where your Mii is at. And this is great: If you don't have any Miis, you can use 2 Game Coins to buy a cat in armor to represent you. A guy who got to spend a bit of time with the 3DS says that the first few level's battles were up against ghosts. This all sounds pretty fun for a built-in game.

There's also a puzzle game called Street Pass Puzzle. This same tipster didn't have any StreetPass data to use, so he wasn't able to test it. We do know that the game is a 3D puzzle that is played with pieces collected via StreetPass -- you'll pick up pieces from others that have their StreetPass functionality turned on. The more you interact, the more pieces you get.

Finally, GoNintendo has a few details on the 3DS' power options. There's three "off" modes: Power off turns the system completely off, Sleep keeps StreetPass active, and Suspend is activated when the system is closed or the Home button is pressed.

Beard View: The Legend of Legacy

The credits for The Legend of Legacy read like a who's who of JRPGs, from the composer of Final Fantasy XIII to the writer of Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. While the game is eye and ear candy, it is brutally unforgiving i...more

Review: Ironfall: Invasion

Developing a Gears of War-like cover shooter for Nintendo 3DS is unconventional, but that's just what VD-Dev did with Ironfall: Invasion. Featuring both local and online multiplayer, as well as an 11-stage campaign, the project seems fairly ambitious for the handheld, and as you'd expect, there are mixed results. While multiplayer turned out well enough, the campaign is a mess.more
