Nintendo 3DS Gets A Flame Red Paint Job On September 9

Nintendo is beginning to get its online gaming act together in recent months, though oddly it's the newly released 3DS handheld that's leading the charge. It's a newer release than the company's Wii and so it's not bound to the same somewhat rigid online infrastructure as the five year old console. Next up for the 3DS? Paid DLC.

Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed the news himself in an interview with AOL Games. "In terms of what the next system update will allow, it will allow developers to sell add-on content, and whether that's for a physical game or a digitally released game," he said. 

"In terms of how it will work, it's up to the developer whether they want to make it to buy new levels, new items--all of that is up to their imagination. Essentially, what we're doing is creating the framework for those transactions to happen."

As far as Nintendo's own plans for selling downloadable add-ons, Fils-Aime said that "we're interested in it to the extent that it makes sense to the consumer." He went on to stress that any game the company releases should be considered a "complete experience" on its own. "What we're unwilling to [do is] sell a piece of a game up front and, if you will, force a consumer to buy more later."
