Netflix Now Streaming To North American Nintendo 3DSs

Consider this a friendly reminding that Netflix is now available for download on your 3DS. The application is free and part of a new update that also brings several new games to the Nintendo eShop including four classic Game & Watch titles.

Nintendo first announced Netflix on the 3DS back in May and shouldn’t have caught anyone off guard. Netflix on a Gameboy isn’t all that surprising. Netflix strides to release apps for every available platform and Nintendo wants to position the 3DS as more than just a game system. The marriage was blessed from the start.

The app is available right now from the eShop. 3DS systems must have the June 6th update installed and, of course, Netflix requires a subscription, which is something of much discussion around here lately.
