Big 3DS Titles Downloadable from eShop

Owners of a Nintendo 3DS will not have to worry about not finding some of the most anticipated games. Nintendo is planning to release some of its big title games for download on the eShop.

Starting August 17th, the Nintendo eShop will release New Super Mario Bros. 2 along with New Art Academy: Learn New Painting Techniques and Share Your Art and Freakyforms Deluxe Your Creations, Alive! for download. Many other titles are promised as well. The downloadable version of the game is said to be no different from the packaged version, only that it is saved on the 3DS’s SD card instead of in a game cartridge.

There is an additional perk to downloading games from the eShop: a full game downloaded from the eShop will give double the amount of normal stars in a Club Nintendo account.

Every game put up for download will still be available in its packaged version at retail stores.
