Animal Crossing Countdown - T minus 8

You're It.

Besides the regular WiFi functionality - wherein you use the nearest wireless hotspot (your own, the neighbour's, the one down at Starshmucks, whatever) to hop in a cab and visit the towns of your various cronies - Animal Crossing : Wild World also boasts something called "Tag Mode". Akin to "Bark Mode" in Nintendogs, it allows you to put your DS to sleep and take it along on your daily real world travels while the game constantly scans and searches for other units that it may come within range of. If your DS does find another DS that is also in tag mode, information about the towns will be exchanged, and future interactions between the towns will occur even if you never actually encounter that person in meatspace.
