June 6 Nintendo 3DS System Update Adds Internet Browser, Online Store and Pokédex 3D
Nintendo will be offering an update that will give you more uses for your 3DS! They will be launching an update on June 6th that will be giving us what we want! No not a free version of Kid Icarus, but close! They will be launching the Internet browser and the Nintendo eShop.
The first of the games that will be offered on the eShop, along with this update, will be Super Mario Land, Alleyway, and Radar Mission. After that, 3DS owners can expect to see additions to the eShop to hit on Thursdays, which is odd. You would think they'd keep Mondays, since that's the date they launch their WiiWare and DSiWare titles.
There will also be a free Pokédex 3D application that will offer up some Pokemon collectables. More than 150 Pokémon from the Pokémon™ Black Version and Pokémon White Version games will be available with this update.
Nintendo states, in the PR
"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. "
