Nintendo eShop improvements

  • Users will no longer need to close the Nintendo eShop application to ensure the "Download Later" feature works while the Nintendo 3DS is in Sleep Mode.
  • Other improvements to usability have been made, including the ability to download software update data in the background.


Improvements to system stability and usability
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience.

Nintendo said this week that changes to the terms and conditions for publishing a game on its eShop service have opened up the digital marketplace to a greater range of indie developers.

Business development manager Dan Adelman said: "You know, it's crazy that there are so many developers who don't realize this, but yes, it is not only possible for an indie to get a game onto the eShop service, we've tried to make it as frictionless as possible."

The launches of Lego City Undercover and Luigi's Mansion 2 are among the highlights of this week's eShop releases.
