The update will also add new puzzles to the StreetPass Mii Plaza and a new dungeon to Find Mii.
Along with these announcements are new 3D Animations and 3D Music Videos that will be added to Nintendo Video on 3DS.
3D Animation: Starting today, Nintendo 3DS owners can visit the Nintendo eShop and, for $1.99, download a new 3D “Thriller” video that features singing and dancing by their favorite Shrek characters from DreamWorks Animation.
Additionally, you will soon be able to download a series of unique 3D video clips from Red Bull and a range of fun and engaging WATTS sports videos from Eurosport. Early next year will also see the launch of hilarious and exclusive 3D Shaun the Sheep short films from Aardman, the creators of Wallace and Gromit.
3D Music Videos: Fans of the Nintendo Video service on Nintendo 3DS will soon see the arrival of new 3D music videos, including “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls)” from Foster the People’s Torches album.
Really glad to hear that Nintendo is adding 3D Video Recording soon. I think this is a pretty big feature. And while it sucks that your limited to recording only ten minutes, that’s much longer than I would’ve thought Nintendo would allow. So good on them!
