Nintendo launched its Nintendo Video service in the United States today, offering a selection of free 2D and stereoscopic 3D short films, movie trailers and music videos to Nintendo 3DS owners.
The service currently offers a trailer for the upcoming Captain America movie, a comedy short called Dinosaur Office
, and a short film titled Sunday Jog, as well as a video explaining the service.
Upcoming weeks will see these videos cycle out for music videos from groups such as OK Go, Jason DeRulo, Foster the People, and the Blue Man Group, as well as CollegeHumor videos and "extreme sports and action videos, animation from various independent studios and 3D trailers for upcoming Hollywood movies," according to today's announcement.
Nintendo's video offering comes on top of recently released support for Netflix streaming videos
on the 3DS, and a 3D music video for OK Go's song "White Knuckles" which was available for download at the system's launch.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata first detailed the then-planned video service at a GDC keynote presentation in March
. The service launched earlier this month in Australia and Europe
A planned Japanese incarnation of the Nintendo Video service will reportedly feature content from Fuji TV and other Japanese broadcasters, according to an announcement by Nintendo last October.
