3D Music Videos Coming to the 3DS

In a press release dated March 21st, 2012, Nintendo of America announced that it has teamed up with some of today’s popular artists to provide 3D music videos.  Users will need to download the Nintendo Video application to automatically receive the premium videos.  Of course, an active internet connection is required.

The lineup is pretty amazing, if you ask me.  The Premier videos included “Sabatoge” from Wale and “So Good” from B.0.B.  Some future videos will include:

  • OK Go, “Skyscrapers”
  • Skrillex, “Breakn’ a Sweat”
  • Death Cab for Cutie, “Underneath The Sycamore”
  • I Fight Dragons, “Save World Get Girl”

Previously, Nintendo has released 3D music videos by Foster the People, OK Go, and Jason Derulo.

When the Nintendo 3DS was first announced, I have to admit that I was skeptical.  The 3D aspect seemed like a gimmick to me.  I couldn’t help but get the feeling that it would be nothing more than another reincarnation of the DS with the added 3D feature.


The 3DS seems has become an ever-evolving power house.   Whether it is the release of an epic game such as Kid Icarus: Uprising, the Heart pounding 3d Incarnation of a Skrillex video, or yesterday’s visit by Reggie (and in a  few cases Iwata), the 3DS has been full of surprises.  I cannot wait to see what is next!
