Nintendo has announced that 3DS owners with broadband connection can visit the Nintendo eShop starting December 2 and download the Nintendo 3DS Guide: Louvre software.

For more than a year, visitors to the Louvre museum in Paris have been able to rent Nintendo 3DS systems loaded with software that serves as an interactive museum guide.

Nintendo announced the availability of the software during a Nintendo Direct announcement today.

The software contains more than 600 images of artwork, in addition to more than 400 3D photos of the museum’s interior and nearly 30 hours of audio commentary. Users can zoom in and view select paintings up close, or take a three-dimensional look at famous sculptures.

The software includes features not found in the Louvre version, including an artwork slide show and a mode that lets users select particular works of art while the audio commentary plays.

Auto updates will be applied to the guide when a new display is added, and to access the new conten, users just connect to the Internet and select “Update Guide.”

A 3D video featuring the famed Venus de Milo sculpture can be viewed from the Nintendo eShop starting today.

The software will run you $19.99 upon release.
