Welcome to StreetPass Network, the website that’s connecting Nintendo 3DS gamers across the world!
Our mission is to link you to one of the many StreetPass groups that exist worldwide. How many are there? The answer might surprise you. We’ve counted a staggering 148 groups spread across five continents. There are 79 groups in North America, 48 groups in Europe, and another 21 spread across Australia, Asia and South America.
These amazing numbers are made all the more impressive by the fact that there was no centralized effort to form these groups. What you see here is no marketing campaign; it’s a truly grassroots effort by gamers for gamers.
So what motivated people to form these groups? And why do so many gamers join the events? It’s the great feature built into every Nintendo 3DS: StreetPass. This wireless function allows people carrying the Nintendo 3DS system to automatically swap game data with other people in range. Games use the feature for different purposes, but the data swap often unlocks new content or challenges.
And while it’s cool to see such rewards, we at StreetPass Network think it’s even cooler to use the feature as an opportunity to bring people together. We want to help people find a StreetPass group near them — or help you create one for your city.
You’ll find a variety of Resources for Gamers and Resources for Admins here in addition to our core listing of Groups and Events. There’re also some Press Clippings on display if you’re curious about how this phenomena got started, plus Twitter feeds relaying the latest bits from StreetPass DC, StreetPass NYC and StreetPass LA.
Have any comments or suggestions? Please let us know. Thanks for being part of this worldwide community! We look forward to seeing you at our Plaza Gate!
