Here's the 3DSWare Logo You'll Spend Years Looking At

Posted by James Newton

Update: Or will you?

The WiiWare and DSiWare logos are like old friends, with their slanty, curvy letters, so it's no surprise Nintendo decided to stick to exactly the same design style with the logo for 3DSWare.

Nintendo of Greece uploaded the logo to its website recently, although there's nothing else to see in the section: no confirmed games, prices or any details at all. Just a logo.

For all the talk of how the eShop will beat the Wii and DSi shops, at least the logo is familiar. One other familiar aspect about 3DSWare is the 100% review coverage you'll be able to read here at Nintendo Life; every game reviewed, from the first update in May right until the final release.

Update: It looks like Nintendo of Greece has removed the image, so we'll see if it comes true. This may be the real thing, but Nintendo may not be officially releasing it yet, or it may be a mock-up. Only time will tell!

I like that when when you first read the red party it's "freeware". ;)
But well, nothing really new here except for the colors.

I actually haven't heard anything about 3DSWare. It's not even mentioned in the press releases regarding the May update. So when is 3DSWare coming anyway?

I'm a little confused about how Nintendo is handling all this online content like streaming media and such. They make it sound like XBLA with ease of use and that SpotPass hyperbole, but wouldn't you still have to click on an eshop icon to know what's availible to browse through, or click on a video icon to view all that short form media nintendo promises? If it's all still click, click, click won't everything still be difficult to promote? If this is the case then what's this "pushing content" stuff all mean anyway.

I know this is a little off topic but it's been bugging me lately. Especially with Hideki Konno's recent comments.

100% coverage? But you guys didn't review a DSiWare game that I didn't know would be good or not... Darn forgot the name of it. I'll look it up & edit this if I can find it.

Honestly, I wish they'd re-brand the software just as they're changing the service name. All those letters and fonts look clunky to me. "eShop" is simple, easy to understand. "3DSWare," if you're unfamiliar with the previous Ware titles, doesn't really make sense. But whatever. If the games are there, I don't really care what they're called.

@theblackdragon As far as I know, the only US or EU DSiWare there's no reviews for are the two english training games that came out in the non-English European countries.

But you know, I think that's understandable.

@WarioFan63 I'll add to that list a few Germany-specific crossword titles, other than that we've got it on lock-down.

@Zach: yeah, i remember those crossword ones coming up, but i thought that was it — and it was also both explainable and understandable (since we'd already reviewed the versions of the same game that had come out in the UK). i was fairly sure we've got both the NA and UK-specific EU covered, though, lol.

@BassX0: Because the Wii firmware is a bloody mess, making it quite impossible. Sure, Sony was able to do so on the PS3...because they made a system that can actually be significantly updated. The Wii, however, can not. With all the talk Nintendo's had about the 3DS, I'm wondering if they've FINALLY gotten system software right. That would certainly be nice.
