The video broadcasting service from Nintendo, Nintendo Video, launched in Japan about a week ago, while folks on this side of the world were left waiting for it to arrive. The wait is finally over. In a press release today, Nintendo has officially announced the launch of the Nintendo Video service in the US. In case you have no idea what Nintendo Video is, it is an app for the Nintendo 3DS where users can download 3D videos that they can watch on their NDS.
Nintendo seems to have gotten quite a number of big names onboard the Nintendo Video service. OK Go’s new music video will be making its debut in 3D exclusively on the service (July 27th), while other artists like Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, and internet mega stars CollegeHumor will be providing content for the 3D channel. It has been said that specific content may vary across countries in the Americas.
To access Nintendo Video, users need a Nintendo 3DS, and a WiFi connection. All they have to do is visit the Nintendo eShop to download the Video app, and then start using it to watch the videos they want. Sounds simple enough, and with exclusive content from sites like CollegeHumor – 3DS owners are in for a treat. Let’s just hope Nintendo can keep up pumping quality video into the service.
