Nintendo has told GameSpot it is "investigating" reports of 3DS units crashing after users attempt to purchase the new updates recently added to StreetPass.
"We are aware of some reports of technical difficulties which are occurring and are currently investigating the situation," said a Nintendo representative to GameSpot.
The crashes revolve around the fact that European and Japanese 3DSs today received an update adding four new minigames to the StreetPass Plaza. The games are priced at £4.49/€4.49 separately or £13.49/€14.99 as a bundle for the whole quartet.
Current reports suggest the crashing affects only European users.
The four games included in the update are the adventuring StreetPass Mansion, the strategy title StreetPass Battle, the gardening sim StreetPass Garden, and the side-scrolling shooter StreetPass Squad.
Additional information about each game is presented to users after they have installed the system update.
The update also adds two new puzzles--based on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Xenoblade Chronicles--and 99 new Mii hats.
