The bump, confirmed by Nintendo America’s Reggie Fils-Aime, will bring Nintendo’s eShop, a web browser, the DSiWare service and the opportunity to load up any existing DSiWare titles onto the spanking new console.

The eShop is set to bring a slew of classic games, updated with 3D smarts, to the party. Ninty is keeping schtum about just what titles will be available, however.
