Satoru Iwata has revealed this morning a host of new features coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop soon, including what Nintendo are calling 'add-on content', demos and the ability to browse eShop on your phone or PC.
Speaking of 'add-on content', Iwata said: "After a software title is launched, content can be added to it via the Nintendo eShop. This is a feature a number of software creators have been looking forward to."
"Another addition is the ability for the software publishers to provide the owners of Nintendo 3DS systems with demo versions of their software, for which they can put a limit on the number of trials," he continued.
You will also be able to download eShop software while 3DS is in sleep mode too, and further down the line, you'll be able to catch up on what's new on eShop through your phone or PC.
"Even if a software title receives an incredible review [through eShop's user review feature], the majority of people will not know about it unless they access the Nintendo eShop with their Nintendo 3DS system," he explained.
"We would like to solve this issue by making the Nintendo eShop accessible via PCs and smartphones as well. At the beginning, you will not be able to directly purchase software from your PC or smartphone. Instead, you will need to take a photo of a QR code at the Nintendo eShop by using the camera of your Nintendo 3DS."
"The Nintendo 3DS will then open that specific page of the Nintendo eShop. That function is already included in the upcoming system update for the Nintendo 3DS. In the future, we will make it so that you will be able to purchase software by using your PC or smartphone."
So some interesting new features to look forward to in the next 3DS update and further on in the future. What do you think of eShop so far?
