Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to stay connected even when they are on the go through Nintendo Zone, launching today across Europe. By using one of the approximately 25,000 Hotspot access points across Europe you will be able to access free and exciting content via your Nintendo 3DS system. Nintendo Zone is a free location based, interactive service that allows you to access exciting content including upcoming trailers of games in 2D and 3D, product information, 2D and 3D screenshots, Nintendo 3DS game demos and free video clips.
this is super nice!
when will be available for LA, damned nintendo… wqe also pay for the console and the games, but Netflix and Nintendo video are region locked. WTF
I got the message during the System Update telling me I’d have access to it, but nothing so far. Do you have to own a game that uses the Nintendo Zone for it to show up?
no, it says that you have to connect to one of those hotspots and then, the icon for Nintendo Zone will appear
There should be a Nintendo Zone channel on the home screen. But you can only use it in places where it is offered.
As someone who has used the service, meh. It really has very little to offer. In fact, there is no reason why they can’t make it a “Nintendo Channel” like the Wii has. Then again, how else are they getting people to take the 3DS out of the house and go into McDonalds, Starbucks, and Best Buy?
Rats, more a second there I thought it said Nintendo Network :(…
ummmm will it work with american 3ds’ cause i live at an APO (american military post in europe basicly lol) thanks

I have an American 3DS but live in Europe, will I be able to connect to Nintendo Zone?
You can if you’re tuned to the moon you cocksucking faggot
it think nowwwww… do you live near the airbase in ramstein?
In the US we have a way to get around the locational hotspot, and can access it at home. For the US change your router’s SSID to attwifi. Make the broadcast public and unlocked and it bingo. Nintendo zone can work from home.
The same thing might work in Europe, though I’m not sure what you have to change the SSID name to.
Is it everywhere in Europe or some countries will (once again) be screwed?
Uk and ireland get 25000, uk 25000, Ireland 0
I followed instructions on the net. I’m in France. I have a European 3DS. I took a spare (yeah, I’m a geek, so I have spares of these) WiFi router, which I configured with SSID : attwifi , and no encryption. Then I plugged that on to my main router (making sure the internal LAN IP of the new router was on a different range than the normal home router – my internal network is 192.168.1.X and my LAN settings for the “attwifi” network is 192.169.2.X so that routing works). Immediately (well, after a few seconds) my 3DS told me I was in a Nintendo Zone and proceded to set up the software and ask me if I wanted notifications and such. Now it says “Comming Soon!” on the main Nintendo Zone page but it works. :)
Anybody know other SSIDs that work for Europe (I suspect the attwifi one is US only and so content isn’t present for European 3DSs using attwifi – but I could be way wrong on this one).
there is nothing on nintendo zone! When will anything get released?
use ssid _The Cloud
Tested in uk and 100%5 same content as a legit nintendo zone :D
i wish i knew how to download nintendo zone
