StreetPass Zombies and Fishing arriving for International StreetPass week

What do you mean you didn’t know there was an International StreetPass week? From the 16th to the 27th of April - um, that’s a week and a half, Nintendo - 3DS is celebrating all things good in the world of StreetPass and the joy of that little green light that means you’ve met a real pixelated human to play games with.

The two games announced during last week's Nintendo Direct, StreetPass Fishing and StreetPass Zombies, will both be available for purchase on the 16th of April. Zombies has you battling endless amounts of (cuddly looking) undead with the items related to the hobbies of your visiting Miis, while Fishing takes you to StreetPass Isles where you’ll receive bait from friends and compete to reel in the biggest catch.

Other celebrations for StreetPass week include a free Home Menu theme from participating Nintendo Zone locations and a new update for the Mii Plaza that means you can customise greetings. Also available at Nintendo Zones will be the chance to have up to six international Mii’s visit your plaza via StreetPass relay. It will also be possible to purchase StreetPass Mii Plaza Premium which adds birthdays and a VIP Room. Aren't we all meant to be VIPS even if we don't pay extra...?

StreetPass Zombies, StreetPass Fishing and the Mii Plaza Premium will be available for £4.49 each on the 16th of April.
