Warrior's Way (known in Japan, Britain, and Australia as StreetPass Battle) is a DLC game for StreetPass Mii Plaza.
In Warrior's Way, the player's chosen Mii is a Monarch over a war-torn kingdom; the Monarch, however, decides to conquer the world to unite the kingdom. But he/she doesn't have an army to do so. However, the Monarch's butler, Wentworth, points out that the player can use StreetPass to gather war generals to fight on his/her side; hearing this, the Monarch sets out to gather an army to fight for him and conquer the world. After conquering the world once, a tragic day befell on the Monarch, causing the Monarch to lose all of his/her countries instantly. Initially, the Monarch became depressed, but Wentsworth encourages the Monarch and mentions that he/she still has his/her army from before. Invigorated by Wentsworth's words, the Monarch sets out to conquer the world a second time.
Building an army can be done by two ways, either by meeting other people by StreetPass, or hiring mercenaries with Play Coins. When StreetPassing 3DS owners who haven't downloaded Warrior's Way, their army comes in as the same number of that person's plaza population and are automactically recruited. StreetPassing a monarch gives you the options to "Greet Peacefully" or "Attack". Greeting peacefully avoids a battle and the monarch leaves. Sometimes, the monarch may donate a small number of his or her troops to your army. Attacking the troops initiates a battle with the monarch. Beating the monarch in battle adds all of his or her troops to your army. Hiring mercenaries requires you to pay a certain number of Play Coins, more than the usual 2 play coins in the other StreetPass games. As Wentworth says, sometimes mercenaries may bring more troops than usual when they arrive at the player's castle.
The player can hire mercenaries to fight in their army, by paying Play Coins. The mercenaries, like the Wandering Heroes in Find Mii, are either cats or dogs, depending on the player's preference. Depending on the player's rank and the amount of Play Coins spent, different amounts of mercenaries are hired. On a rare occasion, the base number of troops may multiply by ten, which is indicated when extra troops drop in after the hired mercenary.
At the beginning of the game, you three choices of what kind of castle you want to start out with. Keep in mind that you cannot interchange betweenthe types of castle you have once you have made your choice.
