Resident Evil: Revelations StreetPass functionality revealed

Capcom has announced the upcoming Nintendo 3DS-exclusive Resident Evil: Revelations will support StreetPass functionality. The feature will allow players to "collect items via a local wireless connection." These items, a press release revealed, will differ based on the game's multiple modes.
