Nintendo has unveiled a new partnership with RecoChoku today during its Japanese Nintendo Direct which finally brings a music store to the 3DS console.

The service is scheduled to begin this December in Japan, and looks set to be Nintendo's take on iTunes for your 3DS. RecoChoku has one million songs in its catalogue and 3DS users will be able to purchase audio next month. Once you buy songs on your 3DS they can be shared with other portable devices.

Sadly, RecoChoku doesn't have any services in the West, but perhaps Nintendo is looking to partner with other companies to bring this kind of service to North American and Europe?
