Nintendo launched its 3D video service for the Nintendo 3DS system last night. To celebrate the launch of the service, in the coming weeks, Nintendo Video will feature exclusive 3D videos from Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, CollegeHumor and the Blue Man Group, plus extreme sports and action videos, animation from various independent studios and 3D trailers for upcoming Hollywood movies. All without special glasses.
“Nintendo 3DS is a unique platform for creativity,” said Tony Elison, Nintendo of America’s senior director and general manager of Network Business. “OK Go and all our partners are helping us make Nintendo Video a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience.”
To access Nintendo Video, Nintendo 3DS owners need to connect to a broadband wireless Internet service and visit the Nintendo eShop, where they can download the Nintendo Video application. Once you download the application, the video lineup will automatically update whenever users are within range of a wireless hotspot and have their SpotPass feature enabled, even if the system is in Sleep Mode.
