Nintendo Download: Netflix app added to 3DS eShop

This week’s Nintendo Download adds the free (for current subscribers that is) Netflix streaming application to the 3DS eShop. In light of the company’s recent woes over a 60% price hike and the unbundling of their Instant Watch service, they could use the good news.

“The new Netflix application looks great, plays great and is a fantastic consumer experience,” said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. “It gives Nintendo 3DS owners access to an amazing wealth of movies and TV shows, which they can watch conveniently from thousands of free Wi-Fi access points across the country. Nintendo 3DS truly offers something for everyone.”

This week’s update also includes a bevy of games including…

  • Game & Watch Gallery (3DS) – A re-release of the Game Boy classic, which was itself a re-release of Nintendo’s popular Game & Watch handhelds.
  • Baseball (3DS) – One of the first Game Boy games ever released gets the 3DS Virtual Console treatment.
  • Extreme Hangman 2 (DSi) – Another round of hangman excitement.
  • AfterZoom (DSi) – Turn your DSi’s camera into a microscope.
  • Puzzle Fever (DSi) – A puzzle game with actual puzzle pieces.
  • Just Sing! 80s Collection (DSi) – A music game that goes back to the decade that brought us Madonna, A-ha and Rick Astley.
  • 3D Pixel Racing (Wii) – Pixel graphics, 3D gameplay, retro cool racing.
