Partial unlockables in the games of 3DS need "Game Coins"

On the official Japanese Nintendo 3DS website, Nintendo have highlighted a new feature called "Game Coins". On the top screen when browsing the home menu two different stats appear, the first is the amount of steps you have walked that day which then fades away to reveal the amount of Game Coins you currently have.

Game Coins are tied in with the pedometer feature of the Nintendo 3DS, and it appears that Game Coins are accumulated depending on the amount of steps you take. Nintendo have revealed that these Game Coins can be spent to unlock new features in compatible games, if that's the case then this new system is like a built-in PokéWalker where the more you walk, the more you can unlock.
