Nintendo 3DS users get free Wi-Fi access from The Cloud

Nintendo 3GS games console to get free access to 5,000 Wi-Fi access points in the UK

Nintendo has announced it is to offer Nintendo 3DS owners free access to 5,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the UK having penned a deal with The Cloud.

With Wi-Fi access points across a number of the UK’s leading retail and food outlets, partnering with The Cloud will see 3DS touting gamers able to make use of the console’s SpotPass features in an array of locations across the country.

Automatically connecting to the access points that run across outlets such as Eat, PizzaExpress and a selection of leisure facilities, 3DS users will be able to browse the web for free and gain access to the Nintendo eShop whilst out and about.

“Nintendo 3DS continues to evolve and add new features all the time,” said Dawn Paine, Marketing Director at Nintendo UK. “The Cloud partnership represents another exciting step that will continue to expand its appeal and encourage owners to take their Nintendo 3DS systems with them wherever they go, offering different and unique experiences everyday.”

Sales figures released last month showed that Nintendo 3DS sales were drastically down on expectations with just 710,000 of the glasses-free 3D games consoles sold worldwide in the three months leading to the end of June. In the wake of these poor sales Nintendo has revealed it is to slash the 3DS's price cutting a third of the device's RRP.
