Nintendo 3DS: June 6th/June 7th Nintendo 3DS System Update Adds Internet Browser, Online Store, Pokédex 3D, Excitebike Plus Gameboy Games

Nintendo of America and Nintendo UK have both issued press releases detailing exactly what we’re going to see included with the latest system update for the Nintendo 3DS.

There’s a whole host of features that are set to included in the update which arrives June 6th in the United States and June 7th in Europe. Not only are we getting the Nintendo 3DS web browser and eShop but we’re also getting the Pokedex 3D and Excitebike 3D for free. Upcoming Virtual Console content available in the Nintendo eShop includes Game Boy games Super Mario Land, Alleyway and Radar Mission. New content will be added to the Nintendo eShop on Thursdays.

The system update also gives Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL system owners the ability to easily transfer most of their previously downloaded Nintendo DSiWare games to their new Nintendo 3DS systems. In the near future, users will be able to download a free application for a short-form video service that will enable them to view specially selected video content, including 3D movie trailers, comedy clips and music videos automatically received when the SpotPass feature is activated.

      1. If that is true then you can view Youtube on it if its the same browser used by the PS3 Cuz i can view youtube on the PS3.

  1. Can I still download DSiWare games off of the 3DS eShop though? I never had a DSi and there might be one or two games I missed out on the first time around.

  2. I really hope the Pokedex goes in depth. I’d only really use it if it tells you what levels Pokemon learn moves, the egg moves it can learn and the natures etc. Somehow I think they’ll be keeping it a little too simple for my liking. :(

    1. More information taken direct from the Press release:

      This new application lets users view each Pokémon in 3D with animated motion and sound. The Pokémon image can be rotated 360 degrees, allowing users to zoom in and view it from any angle. The detailed Pokédex also allows users to search, sort and filter all of the data they receive in a variety of ways, making it the essential guide for Pokémon fans. Players can complete their Pokédex by sharing data with friends and using the SpotPass™ feature, or by scanning special Pokémon AR Markers (augmented-reality markers). Once users have received data for a Pokémon, the AR Viewer allows them to view that Pokémon image in a real-world setting in real time, and create photos to share with friends.

  3. It’s June 6th, but my 3ds says its up to date! I thought the system update was today! Tell me what’s going on!
