Nintendo 3DS To Offer 3D Movie Trailers, NetFlix And 3D Classics Gaming!

Nintendo issued a 3DS press release today with some very interesting 3D news! This is the first I have heard of this, but I'm not really surprised: Nintendo will be offering "3D Classics" gaming which will include remastered classic video games. Very cool. No word on just what games will be selected initially.

Something a little more of note, Nintendo also announced that you will be able to watch 3D movie trailers on the 3DS!! I was hoping this would exist on the unit. Wish fulfilled. This functionality will be made available to 3DS owners at the end of May with a wireless system update.

Further, this summer the 3DS will offer NetFlix unlimited streaming movies for $7.99 a month.

Here is the related snippet from the Nintendo press release:
A short-form video service will let people view trailers for Hollywood movies in 3D and access video game trailers, screen shots, background information and links to publishers’ websites. Content will include short video clips, such as comedy shorts or music videos, selected by Nintendo and delivered to Nintendo 3DS users who choose to receive them.

You can read the whole release right here.

Nintendo 3DS launches March 27 in the United States at a suggested retail price of $249.99. I will be bagging one of these asap! Thanks test24 for the link!
