Surprise Surprise, get your eShop on the week of E3

Our close ties to Nintendo Europe have again (or for once) delivered in our favour. Our Australian eShop will be going live the same day (and probably time) as the rest of the world on June 7th. Like the rest of the world, thats the same week as E3.

The announcement was made official on Nintendo Australias website yesterday. Heres what they had to say;

Nintendo of Australia has announced that the latest system update for the hand-held Nintendo 3DS system will be available in Australia and New Zealand starting June 7. By downloading the free update via a broadband Internet connection, Nintendo 3DS users can enjoy a number of new features and enhancements including an Internet browser and access to the Nintendo eShop, where users can browse and purchase downloadable content.

Well be ready for the update as soon as it goes live, we dont expect Nintendo to reveal any more about whats going up there until E3. Its just too close of a coincidence.
