Nintendo announced today on their Japanese website that they will be rolling out a large firmware update next week which will launch the eShop on the hand held as well as activate the web browser. This update was originally meant to come out in May but had been pushed back until next week. The web browser will not support Flash or PDF files however, meaning that some websites will be difficult to view on the handheld.
Andriasang has detailed the announcement saying that players can still download and save .JPG images from the web browser onto their SD cards as well as upload pictures from the 3DS’ camera. Parents can also set online restrictions with the parental control option in case you don’t want your kiddies to look at anything un-childlike on their Nintendo 3DS.
