Nintendo TV, Future Publishing’s on-console video show made its debut in December on the Nintendo 3DS and the second episode is available to view via Nintendo eShop now. Powered by Official Nintendo Magazine, the upgraded show has already received over a million views on the Wii console in 18 months and is now available in full 3D on Nintendo 3DS.
In each episode, Nintendo 3DS owners can access original 3D footage from the latest games in Select, news in Update and hot tips on what every gamer needs in Nintendo eShop Essentials. The monthly show also features behind-the-scenes footage, plus a fantastic competition and is available to be streamed directly from the Nintendo eShop.
The second episode, which is live now features Resident Evil Revelations and reveals news about upcoming titles The Last Story and Mutant Mudds. Nintendo eShop Essentials features Pullblox and 3D Classics Kid Icarus, plus there’s a terrifying feature filmed at London’s premiere horror attraction, the London Bridge Experience, all filmed in high-definition 3D.
The first competition in the new-look show gives gamers the chance to win an Ice White Nintendo 3DS system with Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
James Honeywell, Marketing Manager at Nintendo UK said “We are always striving to bring fun and exciting new content to Nintendo 3DS users and Nintendo TV will do just that. We are looking forward to launching a new episode each month, adding to the host of other unique 3D content available from our various partners.”
The innovative eight-minute, entirely 3D show is yet another example of pioneering digital publishing from Future, who scooped the AOP Digital Consumer Publisher of the Year and Grand Prix Awards earlier this year.
Lee Nutter, Publisher of Future’s Nintendo Group said: “The new 3D video show really is the first-of-its-kind. The original show has been hugely successful on the Wii since launch and this cutting-edge upgrade embraces the new technology of the Nintendo 3DS perfectly. Our partnership with Nintendo continues to go from strength-to-strength and has witnessed Nintendo’s consoles transform the UK games market forever.”
