Yes you read correctly. The rainforest has attracted a new beast and its species name is the Nintendo Streetpass 3DS.

StreetPass is a network protocol that has been created by Nintendo andis installed in the 3DS gaming systems. The protocol enables players to connect with each other, engage in interaction and share information. It is an opportunity for gamers to find like-minded players and test the system.

The idea behind StreetPass is to break the image of the typical gamer who is stuck in solitary interaction. The system encourages interaction with others. In Costa Rica, the gamers congregate in outdoor venues, enabling them to enjoy the outdoors when the batteries of their devices drain. The idea is to encourage activity after the games are over. In Costa Rica, what better place than in some of the most bio diverse surroundings.

In Costa Rica, the StreetPass community is growing at a steady pace. A recent Boom Con event in San Jose saw an increased participation and attendance and although the exhibition is not related directly to the gaming industry, there is a crossover in interests.
