At a later date, Nintendo will release a downloadable web browser on the Nintendo e-shop. Details about the software were not announced, but in the past Nintendo worked with Opera for the Wii, Nintendo DS, and DSi browsers.


The Nintendo eShop is a revised version of the Nintendo Store. You can scroll through a list of new releases and best selling games. The e-shop also has a list of topics such as "Donkey Kong" or "Mario" with individual lists of titles. You can purchase downloadable games on the Nintendo e-shop, including Virtual Console titles. Super Mario Land, a launch title for the original Game Boy, was demoed. Game Boy Color titles will also be available on Virtual Console.


Similar to the Nintendo Channel, the Nintendo e-shop has streaming videos of games, which will be shown in 3D on the handheld.
