From August 17th, 3DS and 3DS XL owners will be able to get their games without leaving the house.
From 17th August, the much anticipated New Super Mario Bros. 2, along with the recently launched New Art Academy: Learn New Painting Techniques and Share Your Art and Freakyforms Deluxe Your Creations, Alive! will all make their download debut as they become available for download directly from Nintendo eShop. Many more Nintendo 3DS games are also on the way in the near future, so keep an eye out on Nintendo eShop. Downloading New Super Mario Bros. 2, New Art Academy and Freakyforms Deluxe will allow you to enjoy the same content as the traditional packaged game but as a downloadable version saved onto the SD Card of your Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL system.
As a further incentive to start downloading, each full game purchased from Nintendo eShop will be rewarded with double the normal Stars in your Club Nintendo account.
