Fire Emblem: Awakening 3DS StreetPass details

Enlist friends' characters, download bonus maps.

3DS strategy role-player Fire Emblem: Awakening will make full use of the handheld's wireless features to provide new content.

StreetPass and SpotPass functions are supported, Andriasang reports, for interaction between players and access to new downloadable content.

StreetPass will be used to collect your friends' characters, allowing them to join your army's ranks.

Awakening's SpotPass features will allow Nintendo to release bonus side-mission maps for you to download.

Players will also be able to team up for local co-operative battles, each featuring three participants apiece.

Fire Emblem: Awakening is the latest in Nintendo's long-running strategy series and is due for release in Japan next month. A European launch is on the cards sometime later this year.
