In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

3DS's eShop Debut Content Detailed

Posted on Wednesday, May 11 @ 10:16:22 Eastern by


When the 3DS launched back in March, it did so without some important features. The most glaring omission was the lack of Nintendo's "eShop" that allows you to download digital content straight to the 3DS. Nintendo promised a firmware would come shortly after release that would enable this feature, and today we caught wind of what might be the first content to arrive when it launches in Japan later this month.

While there wasn't any mention of the 3DS's internet browser functionality being added, details of the first eShop update have been seemingly released:
  • 3DS Ware - Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype (200 yen), Petitcom (800 yen)
  • DSi Ware - The ability to import DSi Ware from DSi to 3DS
  • 3D Classic - Classic titles in 3D. Excitebike, Legend of Zelda and Xevious will be available
  • Virtual Console GameBoy - Ikari no Yousai, Phantasm
  • Virtual Console Game Gear - Sonic & Tails 2, Sonic Drift 2, Dragon Crystal, Columns
  • Virtual Console GameBoy Color - Super Mario Land, The Legend of Zelda DX (Demo)
  • Virtual Console TurboGrafx-16 - Games TBA
  • Demos - 3D Video Player, 3D Game Trailer/Previews Channel, Fuji TV and Nippon TV Previews
Maybe now I'll actually dust off my 3DS and get some use out of it.

Do you think that the lack of an eShop hurt the 3DS at launch? Sound off in the comments below.
