After Thursday’s Nintendo Downloads update, the Nintendo eShop, on the 3DS, mentioned that the Nintendo Video service was coming soon. Little did we know that ‘soon’ meant this Friday, as today, Nintendo has officially launched the service.
Users who are connected online will notice that a new ‘gift’ has popped up on the handheld’s main menu, which then prompts users to make a brief download before being able to use the service.
Nintendo Video will automatically upload new 2D and 3D videos, with the use of SpotPass, from the worlds of comedy, music, animation and Hollywood, while the group OK Go will be launching a new 3D music video on July 27.
In the coming weeks, Nintendo Video will feature exclusive 3D videos from Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, CollegeHumor and the world-renowned Blue Man Group, plus extreme sports and action videos, animation from various independent studios and 3D trailers for upcoming Hollywood movies. Specific content may vary across countries in the Americas.
Nintendo Video is free to download and free to use and requires a broadband connection.
