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.
