When using the Streetpass feature of Mii Plaza, you walk around and gather 'friends', which shows up as a notification (Green LED light on the 3DS, and a green dot on the game icon).

Can I safely ignore these notifications for an extended period of time, without losing the new friends they bring into the Mii Plaza? (I'm getting sick of watching all my heroes turn back in Streetpass Quest, as I'm waiting on someone with White Magic to light up a room). I'm thinking of leaving it from 2 to about 5 days.

  • I can't check right now, but I thought that the system update from a few weeks ago added the functionality to hire a previous Mii with Play Coins, in both Find Mii and Find Mii 2. If so, you can just go hire a Mii with a white shirt that you've met previously. Or, consider hiring wandering heroes until you get a white shirt. – KatieK Aug 8 '13 at 18:05

    @KatieK, I do not seem to have this option. I can hire wandering heroes, but not previous a Mii. Unless this option only becomes visible when you have over a certain number of play coins? I currently only have 5. – Trent Hawkins Aug 8 '13 at 20:20

    @KatieK Ver. 6.2.0-12U - if I try to force an update, it says I have the latest. – Trent Hawkins Aug 8 '13 at 20:53

    "Pardon me! Your plaza is already up to date." settings lists the version of the plaza as 3.1 – Trent Hawkins Aug 8 '13 at 21:12

    Huh - then I'm not sure what the unlock for that is. I've asked a question though: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/126942/… – KatieK Aug 9 '13 at 3:02

You can safely ignore the gathered StreetPass data for weeks at a time. Keep in mind, however, that while StreetPass Miis will wait patiently at your gate until you check it, that only 10 StreetPass tags can wait in line at a time. Also, if you encounter the same 3DS unit multiple times - Mii Plaza will acknowledge that you've tagged them more than once (and this does not seem to count against the 10), but you still only get one use out of them in each game.

You can check how many Streetpass tags are available for being encountered at your gate through "Notifications" on your home screen (between the friends list and web browser). This should also clear the green notification LED. Once Notifications says you have 10 Streetpass tags for Mii Plaza, you should check them before any others are turned away.

  • The note about only 10 StreetPass tags is important. After you max out at 10, no one new will come to the Plaza. – KatieK Aug 8 '13 at 18:06
