Battleground Z (StreetPass Zombies outside of America) is a beat'em up StreetPass games developed by Good-Feel. Players receive items based on the hobbies of their Mii Plaza StreetPass characters to defeat a horde of zombies.
The focus of Battleground Z is a beat'em up game. The player must complete various missions while fending off the zombie horde. These missions can vary from defeating all zombies, escorting a survivor, or defending an important location. Unlike any other games in Streetpass Mii Plaza, the main characteristic of the Mii used is their hobby instead of their color. When the player finds a survivor, the survivor will give the player one of 26 unique weapons depending on their hobby which the player can use to defeat the zombies. If another player of Battleground Z is encountered via StreetPass, their Mii (when encountered) may offer to team up instead of giving the player their weapon.
The player's chosen Mii is arriving at Hobbiville, a vibrant city filled with people who are passionate about their hobbies, via subway train. As the subway enters a tunnel, the player notices a lost smartphone ringing along with a mysterious vial. When the player answers the phone, the owner of the phone strikes a conversation about the player's hobby and tells the player to find a weapon. When the player finds a Wii Remote, a few zombies intrude the subway. As the player fends off the zombies, the owner of the phone introduces herself as Dr. Scarlet. She explains to the player that Hobbiville is overrun with zombies, but she may be able to find a cure for this if the player cooperates with her, to which the player agrees in silence. After clearing the zombie wave in the subway train, the train arrives at Hobbiville, and the player sets off to find survivors and meet up with Dr. Scarlet.
Battleground Z is divided into 5 areas: Downtown, Shopping Mall, Uptown, Countryside, and Research Center. Each area contains 5 levels in the story and a bonus area that is unlocked when you earn enough medals. Each level has 4 potential medals to get.

Battleground Z features 26 different rare zombies. They are hard-to-find monsters that will get you a medal in an area if you encounter and defeat them. To encounter one, you must use the right weapon in the right place, sometimes it will require using the weapons' charged ability, sometimes that special ability needs to be used on the correct object. The Z-Wiki will give an idea of which zombie will require which weapon. For example, the Studious Zombie's text reads "This zombie hangs out near the hospital. It wants to be a doctor and loves to study." You will find him in the hospital, but only if you are using the Pencil weapon.
