Any advice on how to get some actual streetpass hits in 2020? I've just bought a new 2DS XL and redownloaded all my old games but it won't let me redownload any streetpass games without having one hit first.
I live in Sheffield and in a month I've not picked up one hit despite hanging around the train station and other large public places.
Basically you won't, unless you organise it with someone specifically. You might get lucky but it's going to be a rare occurence. Your other option is to buy a second 3DS so you can streetpass yourself.
Maybe you could go in to somewhere like the National Videogame Arcade (as that's in Sheffield) and ask the staff if they can streetpass you - there must be 3DS' in there!
