    Nintendo will shut down Streetpass Relay Stations in Japan on March 28th

    While Streetpass will continue to be a big part of the 3DS in Japan, a major supporting service is soon to end. Nintendo has confirmed that Streetpass Relay Stations, which collected your Streetpass info and passed it on to other 3DS owners without you needing to be physically near them, are going to be shutting down on March 28th, 2018.

    Streetpass was really cool, but then they ruined it with too many games.
    The warrior thingy + puzzle pieces was enough. I ended up ditching it after I bought all the expansion games. Too much work.

    It's me Scarlett. I can't wait to get off this island and see the world.
    Is it just me or does the water seem to be rising?
    Yes it is in fact the only dry patch of land is just only big enough to stand on now.
    Why has Zeldatrek's look-a-like forsaken me?

    Street pass was pretty cool. It's kind of a shame it didn't make it to Switch, but shutting it down on 3DS is a good sign of 3DS coming to and end.

    It's a sign that a 3DS II is being prepared

    Nintendo need to stop this 3ds crap and just have a focus on ONE portable console - The switch.

    That would be weird, because Japan is the place you meet most 3DS owners on trains etc.

    Probably. Remember that Dustin told us that Japan is pointless.

    Only thing worse than 3DS II talk is "4DS" talk. I'm sure Nintendo overstretching themselves again between 2 platforms is a viable idea. Maybe Switch 2 will let you buy from 3 options: Switch format as we know it, docked-only Switch, and handheld only Switch. Unless the other 2 options are cheaper (or docked only offered a more stable performance) I don't see it.
