Nintendo 3DS eShop Delayed, June 6th Release Confirmed

Nintendo 3DS eShop Delayed, June 6th Release Confirmed

Originally scheduled to hit Nintendo 3DS adopters, via an update, at the end of May, the highly anticipated eShop will now be making its way to the platform early next month. “A new system update for the handheld Nintendo 3DS system will be available in North America the evening of June 6,” states Nintendo’s official website. And, reinforcing what we already know, the site goes on to state:

“By downloading the free update via a wireless broadband Internet connection, Nintendo 3DS users can enjoy new features and enhancements, including an Internet browser and access to the Nintendo eShop, where users can browse and purchase downloadable content.”

This release date puts the eShop’s launch right in time for this year’s E3, taking place from June 7-9. There’s still no word on what launch titles that service will be going live with, save for Capcom’s announcement of their free demo offering Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype. We should be hearing an official line-up of announced titles from Nintendo soon, though, as we get closer to the service’s release.
