  • Playing Online

    When using the internet to play with people from all over the world, you can choose to play with your friends, or against random players.

    Playing With Friends

    This option lets you play with any of the friends you have registered on your Nintendo 3DS system. You can also choose to allow your friends' friends to play with you as well. Your friends can also choose to join you when you're playing a game by using the Friend List on the Nintendo 3DS's HOME menu. Note that they can not immediately join in a game that's in progress. Instead they will be taken to the lobby to wait for the next game to begin.

    Playing with Random Players

    This option lets you play with randomly selected players from all over the world.

  • Local Play

    To play against friends in the same room via local wireless connection, each player will need their own Nintendo 3DS system and their own copy of the game.
