Nintendo worked with Opera Software to create the web browser for the Nintendo DS, DSi, and Wii. However, Opera is not handling the Nintendo 3DS browser. Japanese software company Access is.
Their NetFront browser will be the engine for the Nintendo 3DS’ browser. Tomihisa Kamada, CEO, said his company is honored to share their browser know-how with Nintendo on their innovative game handheld.
No screenshots or footage of the 3DS browser are available yet, but Access’ website does have a page dedicated to existing versions of the NetFront browser for other portable devices, with a rundown of its features.
The Nintendo 3DS browser is being targeted for release around the end of May in Japan. Once you download it, you’ll be able to open it up even in the middle of a game to browse the web or look up a guide.
