Nintendo Zone 3DS hotspots have been given a boost across the UK in a new deal between the format holder and phone network O2, activating 7,000 new hotspots across the country.

Nintendo Life reports that some of the 7,000 hotspots are active now, and the rest will roll out over the next few weeks. The access points enable 3DS users to connect their console to Wi-Fi while on the move for free, and gain access to exclusive content.

In a press release issued today, Nintendo shared some insight into some of the exclusive content, “Upcoming content available to download from Nintendo Video includes free 3D trailers for blockbusters such as Iron Man 3, Monsters University and Epic as well as 3D animations featuring everybody’s favorite pink morphing-maestro Kirby and extreme sports action from Red Bull.”

In order to access the Nintendo Zone O2 points your 3DS must have the most recent system update.
