Nintendo Video Service Showcases Exclusive 3D Animation and Videos from OK Go, Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, CollegeHumor and Blue Man Group
Nintendo 3DS(TM) owners now have a ticket to free, exclusive 3D video content. The new Nintendo Video(TM) service automatically delivers short 3D videos from the worlds of music, comedy, animation and Hollywood, and the 3D content can be watched without the need for special glasses. On July 27, OK Go will launch a new music video and will debut the 3D version exclusively on Nintendo Video.
“Nintendo 3DS is a unique platform for creativity,” said Tony Elison, Nintendo of America’s senior director and general manager of Network Business. “OK Go and all our partners are helping us make Nintendo Video a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience.”
In the coming weeks, Nintendo Video will feature exclusive 3D videos from Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, CollegeHumor and the world-renowned Blue Man Group, plus extreme sports and action videos, animation from various independent studios and 3D trailers for upcoming Hollywood movies. Specific content may vary across countries in the Americas.
To access Nintendo Video, Nintendo 3DS owners need to connect to a broadband wireless Internet service and visit the Nintendo eShop, where they can download the Nintendo Video application. Once Nintendo 3DS owners download the application, the video lineup will automatically update whenever users are within range of a wireless hotspot and have their SpotPass(TM) feature enabled, even if the system is in Sleep Mode.
Nintendo Video is just one of the many features of Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo’s newest hand-held system. Nintendo 3DS lets users experience 3D games, take 3D pictures and watch 3D videos without the need for special glasses. Nintendo 3DS offers users a completely new way to play and keeps people connected — to their friends, to their games, to their world. The Nintendo 3DS system builds on Nintendo’s legacy of creating unique experiences for the masses.
