Nintendo has inked a new deal to secure an additional 5,000 free WiFi hotspots for 3DS console owners. According to a report from International Business Times, the service, backed by BSkyB-controlled The Cloud, goes live today, bringing users access to all the console’s usual online features and should come in handy when in-game DLC becomes available later this year.
“The Cloud partnership represents another exciting step that will continue to expand its appeal and encourage owners to take their Nintendo 3DS systems with them wherever they go, offering different and unique experiences everyday,” commented Nintendo UK marketing director Dawn Paine on the new deal.
“Nintendo is a fantastic addition to our list of strategic partners and site owners who are making the most of Wi-Fi’s potential to give their customers a better entertainment experience,” added The Cloud’s managing director Steve Nicholson.
Well with the twenty free games and gratis WiFi it’s looking good to be an early adopter.
