New StreetPass games make $4 million in a month

StreetPass enthusiasts have spotpassed $4 million to Nintendo by purchasing its four new Mii Plaza games for the 3DS, Siliconera reports.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata shared the sales data with Toko Keizai Online during an interview this week. Mii Force, Flower Town, Warrior's Way, and Monster Manor mark Nintendo's first experiment with pay-to-play Miiverse games. The previously released Find Mii 2 was introduced in a free firmware update.

The new Miiverse games are $5 apiece or $15 bundled together. With the exception of Warrior's Way, we were generally pleased with what they offer. Considering Nintendo's plans to store StreetPass relay data in Nintendo Zone stations, these games might be enjoyable for those of you unable to cross paths with 3DS owners during your daily routine.
