The 3DS may be entering its twilight years but that doesn't mean that DSiWare - the downloadable software service which launched with the 3DS console's forerunner, the DSi - is completely dead.

In fact, thanks to the large helping of DSiWare games in this week's Download Update, there are now 604 games and apps available for DSiWare. That's quite an amazing figure considering DSiWare's limitations and the fact that it has long since been surpassed by the 3DS's own downloadable delights.

DSiWare launched alongside the DSi console, which was the final hardware revision of the Nintendo DS system, capable of connecting to the internet and downloading applications.
