YouTube Is Coming To Nintendo 3DS This Month

By Ishaan . November 13, 2013 . 8:20am

YouTube support is coming to the Nintendo 3DS later this month, Nintendo announced this morning. The YouTube app will allow you to search for content via the 3DS bottom screen.


Additionally, the YouTube app for Wii U will be receiving an update that will allow you to search for content on the Wii U GamePad while watching a different video on your TV.

    I wonder if they’ll include an option to stream or record footage directly from the 3DS at some point and integrate it with YouTube.

    • AuraGuyChris

      If they do, all the people who bought that expensive 3DS capture card will feel stupid.
      But, I don’t really think Nintendo will provide something like this. Isn’t that very costly on their end?

    • Yvonne Tsang

      Baby steps, baby steps.

  • Shady Shariest

    Shame that Nintendo is aggressive towards Youtubers… (Unless there is a large enough backslash after removing a video.)

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      they wasn’t aggressive they aren’t eve doing it anymore

      • Shady Shariest

        The policies have been… Straight out taking videos down, without any room for the people to do anything but complain afterwards. Now thanks to the whole Polaris thing they seem to have gotten sense trough to Nintendo of Japan…

        Edit: To make things clear, Nintendo took down plenty of Pokemon X/Y-videos from Youtube. It was later clarified that takedowns were from Nintendo of Japan. This most notably hit a couple of Yogscast-members, and caused a little tweetstorm, which has ended up nicely :3

          no they only presented getting money from uploading gameplay

  • kylehyde

    I guess the time to delete the nintendo video app from my 3DS is close

  • TheExile285

    Long overdue ^_^

  • Shadowman

    Finally! Youtube will be every where!

  • The Watcher

    Gonna look good on my XL

    • linkenski

      Gonna look like shit in comparison to my smartphone :-S

  • Isaac Newton

    After all this years! Finally!

  • domonkun

    hmmm…wonder if nintendo video will still be viable? after all, the youtube app probably won’t support 3D capabilities

    • InfectedAI

      Nintendo Video needs better content. I loved seeing the Orchestra play music from the Zelda games in 3D. Some 3D music videos were pretty cool. But their new shows are terrible and most don’t even support 3D.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    about time :3

    • John Diamond

      Well. i’m only gonna be excited for it if it actually runs fast. at the moment i’m better off viewing youtube off my phone

  • Chaos_Knight

    Finally, YES! I wonder how high quality YouTube videos will looks on the 3DS.

  • fireemblembeast

    Well, it’s about damn time! Now, about those 3d-enabled videos…

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. Is this something people have actually been asking for? I honestly didn’t know there was such demand for a feature like this on the 3DS. Though I guess it could be something along the lines of how the feature exists on the WiiU, so people just wanted it here as well I guess?

  • Suicunesol

    Honestly, this wasn’t worth their time unless the app could play the 3D youtube videos. Everyone has a computer, a phone, or a tablet for regular viewing.

      It’d be fantastic if they not only supported 3D Video but transitioned Nintendo Video into it along with the entire backlog. Sucks only being able to have 4 at a time, and older ones being lost forever.

  • Yaggyu

    About damn Time

  • Yaggyu

    Is it gonna be free or we have to pay for the app
