Nintendo Details 3DS eShop Launch Lineup

Nintendo Details 3DS eShop Launch Lineup

June 2, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Nintendo has detailed the 3DS features that will become available as part of the eShop update next week, including game titles and the web browser.

From the evening of June 6, U.S. Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to download a free update that will add both the eShop and the web browser to the main menu on the 3DS console.

The eShop will offer a selection of original, remastered and classic titles for download. Pokedex 3D, a new title that will be free to download, allows players to collect Pokemon via StreetPass, QR code and SpotPass features.

The classic NES title Excitebike will also be completely free to download until July 7, and come as a remastered version utilizing the stereoscopic 3D effects.

A number of Virtual Console titles will be available from the eShop, including Game Boy titles Super Mario Land, Alleyway and Radar Mission. New content is set to be added to the eShop each Thursday.

Nintendo DSi owners can move their DSiWare titles to their new 3DS handheld once the update has gone live. There will also be 3D trailers to download, including a trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.

The Japanese eShop will receive different Virtual Console games, along with a couple of new 3DSWare titles. Games included are Mega Man in Dr. Wily's Revenge, Kirby's Dream Land, Baseball, Phantasm, Downtown Special Kunio-kun no Jidaigeki Dayo Zenin Shuugou! and Super Mario Land, as well as original titles Mystery P.I Kieta Film and 3D Block Kuzushi.

Japanese gamers will also receive a stereoscopic 3D remake of Xevious alongside Excitebike, with the store launching on June 7.

European 3DS owners will see a similar lineup to the U.S. launch, except with Mario Tennis in place of Radar Mission, and a launch date of June 7.
