Nintendo is launching a new video download service today for the Nintendo 3DS in Europe and Japan, while the U.S. is set to receive the service "later this summer." Nintendo Video will provide 3DS gamers with a range of 2D and 3D video content, including comedy shorts, cartoons, music videos and magic tricks, available to download via the SpotPass wireless functionality. The service will also offer movie trailers, classical music concerts and children's animations for download at some point in the future. In a statement to games blog Joystiq, a Nintendo of America spokesperson explained that the service is also coming to its U.S. audience sometime in the next couple of months. "Nintendo's short-form video service that delivers special video content for Nintendo 3DS systems will launch in North America later this summer," said the statement. Nintendo also gave more details regarding the upcoming Netflix application for the Nintendo 3DS, with pricing and video accessibility discussed. "Netflix members who have an unlimited plan starting at $7.99 a month and access to a broadband wireless Internet connection will soon be able to download a free Netflix application that allows them to watch movies and TV shows on their Nintendo 3DS systems at no extra charge," it explained.
