Nintendo eShop–It’s Alive!

The long-awaited update for 3DS is now available for download!

This update brings the eShop and web browser (which can, indeed, display 3D images from select sites) to your 3DS home screen.

Available eShop titles include:

Pokedex 3D (free)

Excitebike 3D (free)

Super Mario Land (3.99)

Alleyway (2.99)

Radar Mission (2.99)

Plus a boat-load of DSiWare!

The eShop interface is colorful and entertaining, delivering your new games in a virtual gift-wrapped box.

A word of caution: With a rush of 3DS owners trying to access the shop at once, you might encounter some opening-day bumpiness: It took me five tries to get in, but it was worth it.

More on the eShop soon! By the way, Pokedex 3D is pretty spectacular.

    Yeah the browser is pretty fast on the 3DS. A lot smoother the on the dsi. I am on it right now, it is using Mozilla instead of Opera. Also the interface is really nice and more put together.

  2. @WMDunkin ~ it doesn’t run on Firefox, it runs on an optimized version of Netfront.

  6. The Adza says:

    No flash support by the browser is a bit sucky.
    And even though there was no word on it coming with the update, the 3DS is still sorely lacking an online pictochat like chat function. Maybe in the next one???

    It was live around 9 something, I though it was suppose to be evening, I guess Nintendo thing 9 PM is evening. 😉

    Be glad you live in Pacific Standard Time! 🙂

    Sounds cool, but Nintendo really needs to lower their prices if they want to remain competitive. You can download a similar experience to Super Mario Land for a dollar on iOS.

  11. A says:

    Yeah those Mario clones are must as good as the originals.

  12. Richard says:


    True. But they’re *not Mario*. And they have sucky controls. 🙂 I agree though; the prices seem just a bit high for GB games. Gotta love the price of Pokedex and Excitebike, though!

  13. Kaherka says:

    Can you choose between upscaling or using the original resolution in DSiWare like you can with DS games?

  14. Jared says:

    Funny thing. I’m an American living in Germany…and I’m forced to use the German version of the eShop, which…is only available in German XD fun times…
