Nintendo has confirmed that its eShop 3DS’s digital download store, as well as the system’s internet browser will be ready to go at launch.

According to a Nintendo spokesperson, neither the eShop or the web browser will be included with the system’s “initial firmware”, but both will be integrated via a day-one firmware update.

The eShop sounds like a rather exciting place, and you’ll be able to purchase not only DSiWare goodies and Game Boy titles but 3DS-exclusive digital titles as well.

3DS is out March 25 in Europe and March 27 in the US.

Thanks, Eurogamer.

    I just hope that the 3DS supports my router, unlike the DSi …

    Sounds very interesting. I wonder what the prices of the GB titles will be. I own Super Mario Land myself and I am not gonna buy that one. The first time I played it, I played half of it out in a mere 2 hours. The game is quite small. I think people will feel cheated on if they will sell this game for £8 or more.
