Nintendo Delays 3DS Update

Nintendo has confirmed that the second 3DS system update, previously scheduled for release this month, has been delayed.

The update, which will add the eShop download service and a web browser and enable DSi owners to transfer their DSiWare purchases, was at first intended for release on the system’s launch in March, then slipped to May.

Nintendo has now confirmed that the update will be available on June 6 in North America, and on June 7 in Japan and Europe.

In a statement, the firm said: “By downloading the free update via a broadband internet connection, Nintendo 3DS users can enjoy a number of new features and enhancements including an internet browser and access to the Nintendo eShop, where users can browse and purchase downloadable content.”

Precisely what content will be available on the store remains unknown, though the latest Famitsu magazine – translated by The Magic Box – claims that the first batch of 3DSWare titles includes Petitcom, and a demo of Rockman Dash 3 Prologue.

Game Boy, Game Boy Colour and Game Gear titles will also be available, as will 3D versions of NES classics including The Legend Of Zelda, Excitebike, and Xevious.
