The first time a panel with pink pieces is unlocked, you will receive a free random piece, which can be a pink piece or a regular piece. Apart from that, meeting other players with those pieces, or being a special employee at Nintendo, there is no other way to unlock them that comes to mind.

No, the person you connected with in StreetPass will not see your updated mii UNTIL you can manage to connect with them again. This is because the 3DS StreetPass doesn't use the internet, and has no way of connecting unless you are in the radius of the other person's StreetPass, as it does not update live. As a matter of fact, Your mii won't update until the ...

It's not in the Mii Maker, which is kind of counterintuitive: The special Mii hats can only be used in StreetPass Mii Plaza. The "Mii Settings" that you're looking for are not present in Mii Maker. Select your Mii in the StreetPass Mii Plaza and you'll see "Mii Settings", where there is an option to wear a hat that you found in Find Mii.

I do not have any proof about the selection algorithm used (this may be impossible without seeing the source code), but when buying puzzle piece with Play Coins: You will never get a piece from a puzzle that you have completed. You will never get a piece from a puzzle that you haven't yet started. You will never get a StreetPass only piece (the pink ones). ...

The only bonus is that you get to look at a pretty picture that moves in 3D. For a Nintendo fan, they are pretty neat. With that said though I would spend my coins on the find mii games before giving your coins to the puzzles, personally having all the different hats was a more worthwhile goal to achieve compared to the randomness of the puzzles.

In order to get Miis for use in Puzzle Swap, Find Mii and other games in StreetPass Mii Plaza, you must StreetPass with another 3DS owner, which basically means you have to be in wireless range with their system for long enough for the two to realize each others' presence. Once you do this their Mii will appear in the two games. For Find Mii specifically, a ...

I've just rescued myself from the ultimate ghost again, completing the second run-through of the game. After being awarded the ultimate ghost hat/mask thing, a screen did say that I can now hire old allies using play coins. So it seems that the condition to unlock this option is indeed beating the ultimate ghost at the end of Find Mii twice.

Apparently from this site there are some clues at how to get them. Having been through 50 something battles on my play through, I've only had a single one and I believe "critical strike" can only occur when you're at a disadvantage, as these are the only times I've heard of other people getting them. Basically the critical strike is a thing that can kick ...

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 ...

There are 20 levels to your castle. The first few unlock abilities/perks. Subsequent castle upgrades update these abilities. The abilities you can unlock & upgrade are: Ability to hire batches of soldiers using Play Coins Receive Advice (i.e. Have Wentworth split up your forces automatically) Spy on the Enemy to find out which type of unit you will face ...

You have 3 choices of castle, but they are purely aesthetic choices - only upgrading your castle affects gameplay. When you upgrade your castle, you gain perks at the cost of converting some of your warriors to craftsmen. The perks you gain are detailed on this answer. To upgrade your castle, you must come across some 'resources' after defeating a nation (...

Only the sessions where you died the previous time start with full HP. Otherwise, you'll just have whatever HP you had at the end of the previous session. The exception, of course, is that your HP refills any time you go up a floor. And, of course, when your HP hits zero, that session immediately ends.

Pots are solely cosmetic! You can use any pot you want, and swap anytime you want, and it won't affect anything at all anywhere. It's just up to you which pots you like the look of and want to have your plants in.

According to GameFaqs: If you have the option turned on, and play Mario Kart 7 online every person you race will get in your Mii Plaza. Also any person that you tag in Super Mario 3D Land will be there too. You also get them in Sonic Generations. They add to your Mii Plaza for the purpose of Achievements. In other words, you get those Miis by ...

I'm on 25, so there are at least that many. :) I'd be interested to hear how high up it goes, too.

If you run out of HP, you basically "quit" — it will end your session, and take you back to the title page, and you won't get to use any other Miis or the like that you collected that day. Every session starts with full HP.

There are 50 floors. Once you defeat the final boss on the 50th floor, you have an option to play through again, keeping the weapon you had equipped for that boss. This video shows the final boss fight, the ending, and the subsequent "Restart the game" option on the main menu.

As with other SteetPass games, holding R will make the text speed by. Also, as you progress in the game, Mr. Mendel will talk less: After completing 2 or 3 jobs satisfactorily, he will stop mentioning that you can do jobs for Ms Bloom. After growing a Rare Plant, he'll quit talking about them. After you become a Master Gardener, he'll stop talking about ...

The puzzle box appearances are random. But, you may be missing some things: For a puzzle box to appear, a mii has to: Own the game regardless of tags, or Have two or more tags Note: A Game owner mii gives you puzzle boxes its already completed. A Non Game Owner 2+ tag mii guarantees you a new puzzle box. To receive a ...

You can have unlimited StreetPass tags for miis, BUT the amount of Miis displayed is limited to 3'000 I think (if you get more Miis, they won't get deleted, they will most likely be cycled from time to time). Source

When you receive new Miis through Streetpass you simply have to press the purple arrow icon on the right, then you should have a menu with 3 choices: Keep playing, to remain in the plaza and play with the current Miis Go to the gate, to receive new Miis just arrived Add to the queue, to add new Miis in the queue (or something like that, my plaza is not in ...

Ok, I gave up on the puzzles (my heart bleeds) and started it anew. After a day I got via SpotPass the first puzzle with red tiles, and later the Kid Icarus-Puzzle. This time it didn't broke, it was all available in StreetPass-encounters. Only I had to start fresh. :-( I don't know, why it was broken in the first place, maybe some error while writing the ...

I know that at least for three of the last four puzzles, and also for the mario kart 7 one, I always spent a round number of coins, because I only had them to get. MK7, Mario Tennis Open and NSMB2 all cost exactly 200 play coins to get all 32 blue pieces. KIU cost 150. The only exception was Kirby 20th. That was 186. Ignoring the last one, I dont know of ...

While the hats change, the tickets do not go away unless spent on a hat.

Expanding once gives you a ticket for a hat. Expending a second time allows you to hire 300 troops for ten coins. That's all I've done so far.

When you get a streetpass from a Nintendo worker, they should have all the pieces, so you should be able to get a pink pieces.

It means that you can control the colour of the resulting flower; assuming the plant comes in the colour, it will come out in their "Favourite" colour (the colour of their shirt). This is useful for obtaining all the colours of plants, and certain jobs require particular colours either in general or for bonus points.

There's at least 50. after you clear the 30th, you'll find out there's actually 50. I heard a rumor there's suppose to be 1000, but i do not know for certain. Currently on the 39 floor.

While in the main menu/plaza, select your Mii and press A. Choose Mii Settings. Choose Edit Greeting. You will get the option to enter a new message and facial expression. You may also wish to review the Edit Profile option in Mii Settings. When others meet your Mii, they may be told one of the facts in this section in addition to your greeting.
