If you're unsure of what "SpotPass" is, please check Nintendo's
official explanation here!
To access SpotPass content, SpotPass must be enabled in-game and you
must be within range of a compatible Wi-Fi access point. After
successfully receiving SpotPass data, you should check the "Bonus
Box" within the Wireless menu, when outside of battle, to activate
the available content, which includes:
Legacy characters: These are distributed
as sets (usually categorised by a previous Fire Emblem game) of 10 SpotPass Teams, each led
by a character you can recruit. For example, you can recruit 10
characters from the Path of Radiance set. There are 12 sets
of 10 SpotPass Teams, making for a possible total of 120 characters
that can be recruited.
(All legacy characters use their original artwork for their
SpotPass Teams appear on the world map
after being summoned from the Bonus Box. If the set you've summoned
is the latest one released, the teams in the set will appear after
24 hour intervals of each other, independent of anything you do (so
it will take at least 7-10 days to see everybody in a set), and the
order of the teams differs for each player. For "old" sets you can
summon specific teams at will.
Encountering a SpotPass Team works in the same manner as StreetPass Teams, so you can
battle and/or recruit the legacy characters or purchase their wares. The teams include up to 10
characters--the legacy character plus up to 9 generic "Outrealm"
units. After fighting, recruiting or buying items, the team will
vanish from the map, until you summon them again.
Items: Rare and legendary weapons are added straight to the
convoy, after being sent from the Bonus Box. Only one of each item
can be sent per save file; duplicates can be obtained from the paid
New maps: Exclusive paralogues
can be challenged upon completing the second-to-last chapter,
Chapter 25. These
new paralogues are related to the game's storyline and allow you to
recruit story characters who
you couldn't recruit before... Unlike the paid DLC chapters, the
SpotPass paralogues cannot be played repeatedly in the same save
Double Duel (challengers): Exclusive enemy teams are added to
the 2-player local co-op Double Duel
