Japanese rag Famitsu has detailed Nintendo's May update to the Nintendo 3DS, which will finally bring the 3DS eShop -- well over a month after the system's launch. How nice of Nintendo to grant us this favor. 

As well as the eShop, the 3DS will be able to transfer DSiWare from older systems, so those of you who worried that you'll lose your Animal Crossing Clock can rest easy!

As far as the games go, here's what'll be available, at least in Japan, at launch:

  • 3DS Ware -- Rockman Dash, Peticom
  • 3D Classic -- Excitebike, Legend of Zelda, Xevious
  • Virtual GameBoy -- Ikari no Yousai, Phantasm
  • Virtual Game Gear -- Sonic & Tails 2, Sonic Drift 2, Dragon Crystal, Columns
  • Virtual GameBoy Color -- Super Mario Land, The Legend of Zelda DX (demo)
  • Virtual PC -- TBA
  • Demos -- 3D Video Player, 3D Trailer/Preview Channel, Fuji TV & Nippon TV Previews

This is the stuff I'm really interested in seeing, so I can't wait to see what we get in the West. Here's hoping Nintendo doesn't stuff this up, because I'd be willing to drop quite a few dollars on some classic games.

One of the only problems I had with Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS was using the Circle Pad for a prolonged use of time. I actually got used to using the portable's controls over time, but the pad itself wears on my thumb...more

Giant characters in Super Smash Bros. are a glitch, sometimes

Giant characters are nothing new for the Super Smash Bros. series but not like this. Not like this. It seems that in Smash Bros. for 3DS, Yoshi's Egg Lay move has the ability to make large CPU characters even larger in Multi...more

Nintendo is serious with 3DS themes, will have nearly 50 in Japan at launch

When I first heard of the upcoming 3DS theme concept, I wasn't super hopeful. I thought that Nintendo would probably put up a few major ones (Zelda and Mario), and completely forget about it over the course of a few weeks. Bu...more
