Nintendo To Bring Music Store To 3DS In Japan


During yesterday’s Japanese Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata revealed a new music service that will be coming to the 3DS in partnership with the popular digital music store, Recochoku.

Recochoku already has over a million songs in its music catalogue and these will all be made available to 3DS owners when the service launches in Japan in December this year. Once purchased songs can be transferred and synced between other devices such as mp3 players and mobile phones which will be pretty handy indeed!

It’s unlikely this service will appear in the West anytime soon as Recochoku only operate in the Far East. iTunes currently hold the biggest slice of the pie in the Western world but a deal with them seems unlikely at this current time as Apple rarely enter partnerships with other tech companies. An arrangement with Google Play could well be more likely.

What do you think? Would you like to see a music service on your 3DS?
