Nintendo Download Gets Makeover & Adds eShop on June 16

by Steve CullumJune 13, 2011

We all knew that Nintendo would be adding new content to the Nintendo 3DS eShop on Thursdays. It looks like the Wii Shop and DSiWare Shop will also move their new additions to Thursdays as well. In addition, the Nintendo Download will be adding all this content to the Nintendo Download, which will also be posted on Thursdays. So, unfortunately, there are no games/apps posted with today’s Nintendo Download. You have to wait a few extra days to get that. From here on out, expect it posted on Thursdays. Check out the official press release we have posted below.

Nintendo Download Gets a Makeover, Adds Nintendo eShop Content on June 16

Sometimes you just need to shake things up to keep them interesting. That’s especially true with the recent launch of the Nintendo eShop, a new virtual store that gives Nintendo 3DS users access to a wide variety of downloadable games and select content that can be viewed in 3D without the need for special glasses. To mark the debut of the Nintendo eShop – and provide consumers with a valuable one-stop showcase of all the latest downloadable content across Nintendo systems – the weekly Nintendo Download is about to get a makeover.

Starting June 16, the Nintendo Download will include information about the newest additions to the Nintendo eShop, including new 3D games, 3D Classics (select classic video games re-mastered in 3D), Virtual Console versions of games from the Game Boy and Game Boy Color systems, and hundreds of games originally offered via the Nintendo DSiWare service. What’s more, this modified weekly update will be posted Thursdays instead of Mondays, giving fans a heads-up on the latest offerings just in time for the weekend.

Loyal readers can rest assured that the Nintendo Download will continue to feature the latest items for the WiiWare, Nintendo DSiWare and Wii Virtual Console services, highlighting the ever-growing variety of instantly downloadable games and entertainment for Nintendo systems. Likewise, content will continue to be added to the Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi Shop on a weekly basis, also on Thursdays.
