3DS eShop Update Delayed

Nintendo promising June release

A short and to-the-point statement on Nintendo's website has revealed that the next 3DS update, which adds the long-awaited eShop feature, has been delayed.

The 3DS' eShop was originally supposed to launch this month, but according to a brief statement on Nintendo.com, the update that includes access to the service is now expected to arrive on the evening of June 6, Pacific time. Japan and Europe will get the update the following day, June 7.

The update will include an Internet browser and access to the eShop, though Nintendo has been keeping tight-lipped about exactly what will be available in the eShop from launch. Capcom has previously said it hopes to have Mega Man Legends 3: Prototype Version available at the service's launch.

Coincidentally, the system update arrives the evening before Nintendo's E3 media briefing, which is set to take place at 9am on June 7.
