Nintendo has now made down-loadable content available for the handheld 3DS console in Japan, with international availability set to arrive in the coming months.
The first releases aren’t the most exciting, with the 3DS photo editing application known as Tobidasu Print Club Kiradeco Revolution now has three different decoration sets according to GamesIndustry. Each one costs less than £1, meaning they’re pretty accessible.
Other planned DLC set for release soon includes some from Square Enix for the popular Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. This will be the first official game – non application – to make use of the DLC.
“In terms of what the next system update will allow, it will allow developers to sell add-on content, and whether that’s for a physical game or a digitally released game,” said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.
“In terms of how it will work, it’s up to the developer whether they want to make it to buy new levels, new items – all of that is up to their imagination. Essentially, what we’re doing is creating the framework for those transactions to happen.”
