Don't forget to pack your 3DS this weekend when you and the kiddies hit the streets for trick or treat: Nintendo announced National StreetPass Weekend starting today through Monday, October 31.

"Stop by any of the more than 29,000 Nintendo Zone hotspots across North America with your Nintendo 3DS system from Oct. 28 through 31st—you could get up to six StreetPass tags from across the globe," per Nintendo's website.

Nintendo took the liberty of including a list of games with cool StreetPass features. Dragon Quest VII lets you explore unique dungeons with other players, Shovel Knight's creates a carbon copy of your character and sends it into battle against other avatars, and Monster Hunter Generations lets you square off again Deviant Monsters, a tough-than-usual variant of critter.

Any StreetPass-enabled game will work, but those serve as a good starting point.
