Main article: Nintendo eShop

The Nintendo 3DS, like the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL, has a shop of its own. The shop sells DSiWare, which are only available to DSi, DSi XL, and 3DS owners. Nintendo 3DS Downloads are exclusive 3DS games and applications. The shop has its own Virtual Console with Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Gear, TurboGrafx-16, and NES games. Classic arcade, NES, and SNES games are remastered with 3D availability under the 3D Classics brand. Nintendo 3DS ambassadors can get 10 free NES games before they're made for the public for purchase and will get 10 free ambassador-exclusive Game Boy Advance games. Nintendo 3DS Prepaid cards can be purchased, which have real dollar values rather than the points system used in previous systems. Because of this, the eShop won't support any Nintendo Points cards. The eShop was available in a system update on June 6, 2011 and June 7, 2011.

Messaging SystemEdit

The Nintendo 3DS will feature a mesasaging, similar to PictoChat. The new service will allow users to send messages to their friends on their friends list via Wi-Fi. The Notification LED will notify users of new messages. This service will replace PictoChat.
