StreetPassing is now a little harder
When Nintendo revealed StreetPass, it felt like a glimpse of the future. The ability to effortlessly share data with other 3DS owners was a forward-thinking novelty and to this very day we can't help but get excited when we see that flashing green light on our console. Nintendo made the whole process a little...
Previously Japan-only items on the way
Animal Crossing: New Leaf was a major hit on 3DS when it arrived in the West in 2013, selling millions of copies and becoming a mainstay for light-hearted chatter on social networks.

Gives you your own personal Nintendo Zone
For those that haven't heard of it, the Raspberry Pi is a computer that, slowly and surely, could be a revolution in computing. It's a super-cheap computer that comes only as a circuit board with some connectors and ports, and it's up to individuals to plug it into a monitor, keyboard and internet...
You should also take your 3DS / 2DS to your New Year party, apparently
The 3DS may have blazed ahead with tasty sales figures this year of the back of major retail game releases, but it's easy to forget that it has more to offer. StreetPass is still cited by some as the best thing since bread was first sliced, and is a concept that's spawned many...

Giving oxygen to the service
Remember that thing called Nintendo Zone? It's an app on your 3DS that connects to thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots in your region — it doesn't work on home connections — and provides exclusive content such as videos to watch.

Watch some cartoons while in the pub
Nintendo Zone, the 3DS service that connects to thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots to deliver exclusive content, is included primarily to encourage us to take our portables on the road with us — it can't be accessed via a domestic internet connection. As part of the incentive the feature includes trailers or content...
Free content on the go
The release of Nintendo Zone in Europe has been a slow process, compared to North America, but with today's system update the service is officially available in Wi-Fi Hotspots around the region.

It's taking off
Nintendo UK has confirmed an agreement with the curiously-named Boingo Wireless to provide free Wi-Fi access in a number of major British airports, a move that will also bring Nintendo Zone to the UK for the first time.
