3DS Gets Web Browser, eShop on Monday

The Nintendo 3DS will finally become a fully featured current generation platform Monday night when a major system update goes live enabling the system’s internet browser and eShop, where folks will be able to finally be able to do something with the system’s hard drive aside from saving grainy, low-res 3D images. And to “celebrate” this momentous occasion for the 3DS, everyone with a 3DS will be able to download a new 3D version of Excitebike for freezy.

The update will also include a 3D Pokedex. No, I’m serious. Folks get data for the -dex by playing Pokemons Black and White or via SpotPass.

No word whatsoever in the announcement of the Netflix streaming capability that had been expected to come with this update. It does, however, mention that “in the near future” another update will allow users to download various 3D video clips and movie trailers.
