Nintendo has announced that game demos will be made available via the Nintendo 3DS eShop from tomorrow, with Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations kicking off proceedings.

The 3DS eShop launched in June last year, allowing Nintendo 3DS gamers to download original 3DS digital titles and DSi titles, along with a number of special apps for use with the handheld.

The addition of game demos to the eShop comes as part of Nintendo's digital business push, which it says will soon allow developers and publishers to also provide users with DLC for their games.

Demos of Resident Evil Revelations -- the full game due for release next month -- and Cooking Mama 4 will be made available for free download tomorrow, while demos for other titles such as Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure are due to appear "periodically," says Nintendo.

Nintendo did not state whether it is still planning to automatically push demos to the Nintendo 3DS, as originally discussed by company president Satoru Iwata last year.
