Nintendo says 3DS getting browser, store June 6

Nintendo in a Japanese update dated its launch plans for the browser and download store for the 3DS. Both the e-Shop for games and the browser are expected to go live the evening of June 6 in the US, just hours before Nintendo's E3 keynote. Not said was how it would work, such as whether classic console games would get any special treatment on the 3DS.

The browser is likely to be related to the Opera-based browser that was on the earlier DS series, though it could take advantage of the larger screen area and faster processor. Capcom has already hinted that Mega Man Legends 3 would be one of the downloadable games.

Nintendo is thought by most to have skipped the browser and store for the 3DS in order to rush the gaming handheld to market after missing the holidays. It arrived in late February for Japan and a month later for North America. [via Andriasang]
