National StreetPass Weekend for New York City will take place on December 15 at the Barnes & Noble at Union Square!

Join us on the third floor cafe as we collect StreetPass tags, experience Nintendo zone, play Nintendo 3DS multiplayer games such as Pokemon X & Pokemon Y, Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon and Mario Party Island Tour and more! Plus we may have a limited number of "premium swag" that we will share with those that attend the meetup.

During this weekend, all the Nintendo Zones in North America will be put together and mixed around so that users have the opportunity to StreetPass with people from different parts of the country.

The existing StreetPass feature allows players to StreetPass only with those within their vicinity. During National StreetPass Weekend, when players enter one of 29,000 Nintendo Zones, they will be connected with other 3DS users from all around North America.

Nintendo Zones have StreetPass relay points, so when a 3DS user gets near a Nintendo Zone, their StreetPass data is automatically forwarded to Nintendo servers, which temporarily store it before passing it onto the next 3DS user who enters that Zone. This feature, which was announced earlier this year, aims to allow players to find more Miis in their StreetPass Mii Plaza.

While connected over Nintendo Zone, users will be able to watch 3D videos, full-length animations, play demos and find retailer promotions and coupons.
