    Also of note, apparently the street pass DLC's have gotten nintendo in japan a total of 400 Yen, thats 4 Million Dollars, DAMN

    I think you missed quite a significant quantifier out there. 400 yen is only about 4 dollars, so that hardly sounds like anything worth celebrating. I'm assuming that you actually meant 400 *million* yen? XD It's an impressive number though, but I doubt it'll be anywhere near as successful outside of Japan. :I

    Yes, thanks for correcting me. it was 400 million yen This is significant for 2 reasons, the first being how simple and this was to begin with, allot of people actually bought all the games totaling up to the Street Pass DLC and the second being that Nintendo did barely any advertisement save for 1 Nintendo direct that came out of nowhere without being announced. I will give it though that Japan has ALLOT of spots for street pass, and will most likely not happen outside Japan. Maybe when Nintendo finally puts that update where certain spots give you street pass from anyone who visited rather than being exactly with them.

    I'm honestly pretty intrigued by the new streetpass games, but...I consider myself lucky if I pass one person every couple days. As mentioned, I can't see this being very big outside of Japan.
