Nintendo Plans New 3D Super Mario Game, Announces AT&T, Netflix Collaborations


A new 3D game from Nintendo's Super Mario series is in the works for the Nintendo 3DS portable system.

Nintendo also announced two upcoming collaborations: Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to connect automatically to the Internet at AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots, while Netflix members will instantly stream movies and other content on their Nintendo 3DS systems.

These features were announced last week at the Game Developers Conference during Nintendo President Satoru Iwata's keynote address.

During his speech, Iwata said Nintendo 3DS gives developers new tools to create games and experiences never before possible while enabling them to reach the public in new ways.

"Nintendo 3DS will be the most connected Nintendo device ever, with its ability to link people via local wireless connections, while at the same time connecting them to people and content worldwide via hotspot connectivity," Iwata said.

Nintendo 3DS launches March 27 in the United States at a suggested retail price of $249.99. It lets users view 3D content without the need for special glasses. The announced 3D Super Mario game will feature traditional Mario game play.

At the end of May, Nintendo will provide Nintendo 3DS owners with a wireless system update that will activate the Nintendo eShop and give users access to a number of features:

* A short-form video service will let people view trailers for Hollywood movies in 3D and access video game trailers, screen shots, background information and links to publishers' websites. Content will include short video clips, such as comedy shorts or music videos, selected by Nintendo and delivered to Nintendo 3DS users who choose to receive them.
* Downloadable classic games via the portable Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console service will include Game Boy and Game Boy Color games, as well as those from the Game Gear and TurboGrafx-16 systems. * "3D Classics" will introduce select classic video games remastered in 3D.
* Games currently offered as Nintendo DSiWare and an Internet browser will be available.

The system update will also provide a solution for Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL owners to transfer their Nintendo DSiWare games to their new Nintendo 3DS systems.

To help make the wireless features of Nintendo 3DS as smooth as possible, Nintendo has collaborated with AT&T to provide Nintendo 3DS owners with automatic and free access to AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spots nationwide with the May system update. Nintendo?s aim is to make getting connected easy for everyone, so people who opt in to the system's SpotPass service will tell their Nintendo 3DS systems to automatically connect to AT&T Hot Spots.

This summer, Nintendo 3DS will incorporate Netflix functionality. Netflix members who have an unlimited plan starting at $7.99 a month can access a broadband wireless Internet connection and instantly stream movies and TV shows directly to their Nintendo 3DS systems, similar to how the service is used on the Wii console.
