Unfortunately the Nintendo 3DS e-Shop did not launch with the system. It promises a handheld system based Virtual Console, Updated Nintendo Classics, and downloadable titles from 3rd parties such as the planned version of Nnooo’s escapeVektor and Capcom’s Mega Man Legends 3 Prototype. Nintendo originally said that the service would be available in late may. The actual date is in fact so late into May that it’s 7 days into June. June 7th, the first day of E3, is the new launch date for the Nintendo 3DS e-Shop. This could tie in to the expected announcement of their new system or perhaps they have something special to show off that will be available on the e-Shop. This is all speculation, but it’s pretty exciting and I really hope that Nintendo can get more hype behind the 3DS e-Shop that the DSiWare shop just didn’t have.
