If I have a European 3DS (Italy), can I Streetpass a Japanese 3DS?

Is it possible to exchange data for region-locked games? I am especially interested in Streetpassing Monster Hunter Generations (European title) with Monster Hunter X (Japanese title). Could I exchange guild cards, palicoes, and so on?

  • International streetpasses are definitely working. I am however not sure if two different games can streetpass each other.

  • Actually it is the same game renamed. However in Europe it was released a month ago, in Japan instead last November so there might be small differences.

Yes, Streetpass works in different regions. I personally travel a lot and have streetpass-ed hundreds of people with 3DS from different regions on public transport.

About your second question, it seems that that is not possible due to the servers being different. Source:

A: 無理です。 国ごとです。

  • I spent 3 weeks in Japan, I got many streetpasses and actually some also for Monster hunter X. The names of some HMX players were Japanese, I do not know of course which version whey had.

  • However I got far more streetpass for other games even if Monster hunter franchise is extremely popular in Japan. Maybe I crossed people with EU version and Japanese name or some unlocked 3ds or rom.
