Wow, that's pretty cool, if only because it gives some sort of chance for obtaining the gold pants achievements.

The Iwata Streetpass is for celebration of 3DS Japan 1st anniversary.

He is a Level 5 Mii and has all puzzles.

There's even an achievement for getting three doubles in a row.

And gold pants Iwata is pretty cool. Hope Europe is getting that, too.

Hey, pretty cool. I kind of wish you could label and sort Miis in the plaza though.

Speaking of gold pants, I just found out you can scan QR codes to get gold pants Miis.

I already scanned these: http://poparma.com/news/tgs-exclusiv...-mii-qr-codes/

Anyone know of any other special Miis floating around with QR codes?

If you're in the US, you can only get the 4 Resident Evil Revelations Miis. And as they don't go through the gate, they don't count for the accomplishment.

Mine fits in my front jean pocket. =/ But I usually carry my keys and wallet there and my phone on the other side. I don't like keeping stuff in my back pockets. Cuz then you gotta pull that stuff out when you sit down. Also I'm afraid someone might try to grab stuff from there...yeah...I'm paranoid. =l

Aw, in that case, there's one seemingly useless achievement I'll never get.

Lemme guess, Anguilla? Yeah, it's because it's the first country on the list alphabetically, and lazy people who don't give a shit about anything just choose it as their country. It's those same type of people who don't even bother to capitalize their Mii name, if they even bother to make a Mii that is. >.>

This new panel was previously unavailable? So they can add puzzles via Spotpass, rather an waiting for a firmware update? That's cool.

Esit: Ooh nice. I got one too here in the UK. Wasn't pink though. :(

I don't think so at the moment. But to me, it suggested that the ability to be sent new puzzles via Spotpass is a feature that has started today. No reason they shouldn't do this for every major first pay game release, at least.

I'm in Europe and don't have this new panel. Seems odd that everyone gets these things in such a staggered manner.

Edit: That'll teach me. I opened up the 3DS, closed it, then the light came on. Tch.

I guess that's what the SpotPass option in StreetPass Mii Plaza is all about then, right (getting new panels and perhaps pieces without having to actually StreetPass with someone)? Maybe that's been obvious for a while — I haven't been keeping up with this thread — but I remember it was unclear when the system update came out.

I sub at elementary schools and a middle school. Here's my stats so far:

1st elementary school: 1 day, 1 street pass.
Middle school: 6 days, no street passes.
2nd elementary school: 2 days, 5 street passes.

12 to 15-year-olds don't like 3DS confirmed.

EDIT: The middle school has 1,000 kids in it. I did lunch duty at least twice too.

Have most people in Europe received the new puzzle piece? I'm starting to think I've got an issue with spotpass since I haven't received it or the Zelda message from a few days ago. Anyone got any ideas?

EDIT: And as I hit enter I got the puzzle piece...bloody Nintendo ninjas.

I was having the same trouble with the Zelda message but then I realized I hadn't unlocked the unlockable stationary option within swapnote already. As soon as I unlocked it (by just sending one more message) I received the message and was able to get the new stationary.

I figured that might be the issue but I've since unlocked it and I've still yet to get it. It isn't that I'm not receiving messages either because I was able to get all the special stationary from a gaf member.

I'm willing to bet E3 is going to be a gold mine for puzzle pieces.

Now that you guys mention I didn't receive the Zelda swapnote (but I did receive the Reggie one). What exactly do I have to do to receive it?

Also, I just checked my 3DS and didn't find the new puzzle set...is it available in the US already?

From what I gather you have to reach a particular point in the swapnote tutorials (the tutorial on unlocking more stationary with play coins) to both save new stationary and receive some of the messages. I will note that it may take awhile to get them because well, I got the Zelda one five minutes ago.

Do I have to enable something special to get the SpotPass piece? When did you people (with the KI puzzle piece) buy your system? Maybe it has something to do with that...

Do you guys have a special strategy with the puzzles?
