Today marks the first anniversary of the Nintendo 3DS in European territories. The past year has had its ups and its downs for the new console, but it certainly is a date to celebrate – and Nintendo knows that.
Today, all European 3DS consoles will be given a SpotPass notification for StreetPass Mii Plaza, that states the following:
Nintendo 3DS is celebrating its first anniversary, and to mark the event there’s a surprise visitor waiting to greet you in StreetPass Mii Plaza.
His face will be familiar to Nintendo fans, and you’ll see that he’s dressed for the occasion!
Have a look and see who it is using the “Launch Software” option below!

If the title hasn’t already given it away, the special guest is none other than Nintendo President Satoru Iwata, wearing the special gold trousers that are reserved for Special Miis. Satoru Iwata will join your Plaza population the moment you enter the Mii Plaza and he will greet you like a typical Mii would if you had via StreetPass. Not much information is given about him, except that he works at Nintendo (No.Way!) and his last played game was Mario Kart 7, however, if you take him into Puzzle Swap, he has every single puzzle piece that is currently available, so you can take any one of those. Also, if you put him in StreetPass Quest, he is level 5 and has a blue t-shirt. Just a note though, do NOT put Iwata into the Mii Maker, as he will disappear – he doesn’t take too kindly to identity theft.
Japan received Iwata’s Mii when the console celebrated its first anniversary over there as well.
