Display boxes for Super Mario 3D Land, which were set out on Japanese store shelves today, show that the game includes StreetPass and Super Guide features. The former will allow those passing by each other to trade in-game items and the P-Winged Assist Blocks will help players having a tough time in the game. P-Wing items were first implemented in Super Mario Bros 3 on NES, and gave players the ability fly continuously across a level they found a trifle hard.
Pre-orders for the game have started in Japan, and the game releases on November 3. North America gets it on November 13. Thanks, Nintendo World Report.
