In Find Mii 2 you can "Hire Old Allies" you've met through StreetPass by purchasing them with coins. The higher their level, the more coins it will cost you.


It takes three playthroughs to unlock Find Mii 2?

I thought FM2 was part of the last update?

Thought others might like to know that Amazon is now selling the 3DS consoles again ("sold by amazon"). Well, they have all but Pink in stock. $169.00, so only a marginal discount, but no tax for most. So I don't know what was going on before with them having stopped selling it, but that appears to be over.

So a Nintendo Direct is tonight. I expect them to announce the Fire Emblem Puzzle for Street Pass, which I heard about a few weeks ago. Same goes for a Firmware Update related to the eShop. NoA is going to translate English related announcements as well.

  • Allow users to take pictures of QR codes with the 3DS from the other device’s screen to redeem purchased content.
  • Nintendo Network will be immediately installed.
  • Nintendo Zone application will be immediately installed to all European 3DSs.
  • Enhanced performance and overall system stability.
  • Improved Battery Life of the system in certain conditions
The upcoming firmware update could add any of those features Nintendo has already confirmed.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

I want to access eShop from my tablet.
I would hope it would push downloads to the 3DS automatically.

3DS-less eShop access will be great. I wish Sony would do something like that for PSN games so I don't have to browse on the damn console. Hopefully they'll implement it one of these days and claim it as an original idea.

Thought I'd mention this here, too, since it'll have applications beyond Kid Icarus. I'm too lazy to bother with collecting AR cards and discovered that scans online work just as well. If collecting is your thing then the physical cards are superior, but to me 400+ is just too many to care.

There are already a few sites devoted to cataloging them, and there's even an Android app for the AR cards:

It's been that way for a while with AR cards, which is why the companies that offer them also have PDFs on their site so you can print them out if anything happens to your own cards. However, Nintendo might not offer the Kid Icarus cards if they plan on selling them for whatever reason.

Nintendo didn't confirm any of this shit besides the first one. The NiN app is completely false, btw. 3DS already uses the NiN.

The only thing I can tell you that I know of is 2 rows for the bottom 3DS screen for browsing, as well as additional categories.

I don't think the 3DS is currently using the Nintendo Network, otherwise you would see Nintendo advertising it on its website as a feature of the 3DS. Mario Kart 7 and Kid Icarus are using some features of the Nintendo Network currently. The digital platform and the features it brings are not fully implemented yet.

Here is the article confirming the QR codes and purchasing from mobile devices from Nintendo. http://ds.ign.com/ar.../1210923p1.html

I believe the Nintendo Network app will be used for account management stuff, and the eShop will be dedicated as a store. Same thing Sony is doing with the Playstation Network. I can't find any proof of that yet but it is only reasonable for Nintendo to have the Nintendo Network icon somewhere on the 3DS same with how Sony has the PSN logo on both the Vita and PS3.

According to John Ricciardi, they announced folders and game updates for the next firmware update. I was't in huge need of folders, but I guess I'll have everything on one screen now.

Mario Kart 7 is getting patched.

I heard about it a couple of weeks ago, but I thought my source was BSing me. Folder Support is new to me, though.

Folders can apparently hold 60 items, which is huge. For comparison's sake, iOS only does 12 and 20 on iPod Touch/iPhone and iPad, respectively.

Dear lord they better bring Project X Zone over to the US or I am going to be extremely displeased. That game looks amazing.

Also NSMB2 with the Tanooki suit as it was in SMB3. Yeah I don't need to even see anything else about the game, they have my money already.

I, too, want Project X zone over here. Was very disappointed that namco x capcom never came out over here and the abortion that was Cross x edge. Also, very excited about NSMB2

I think the sky is falling. Nintendo shows screenshots of a new Mario game and I'm not instantly wanting it...

I'm sure I'll end up getting it since there probably won't be anything worth while to play from August till November. Maybe I'll have my Vita by then...

Hopefully, NSMB2 will have some sort of level editor where you can create and share levels with streetpass. Entirely worthless in SM3DL, imo.

Project X Zone doesn't look the least bit interesting.

I don't even need to see or read about NSMB2 to know I want it.

Folders on 3DS will be a fantastic addition. I wish I could get this for my smartphone.
