Nintendo 3DS users on Cloud 9 after free Wi-Fi deal announced

Nintendo have teamed up with Wi-Fi service provider The Cloud to bring 3DS users free Wi-Fi across the UK.

No longer will 3DS gamers be confined to using the internet in their home or having to pay to be online when on the move.

Gamers can now roam free in the great outdoors with access to Wi-Fi across the land.

Owners of the device will be able to access one of the 5,000 Wi-Fi hotspots to play online. This includes a number of the UK’s leading retail shops, food and travel outlets.

What more could a gamer want than to enjoy a nice pizza whilst having the luxury of playing online.

Now they can do this from the comfort of Pizza Express or if they fancied a coffee, Costa. These are just a few of the food outlets that will become access points for 3DS owners.

Hotspots across the UK and Europe

The Cloud is a leading Wi-Fi provider for public areas with hot spots across the UK and Europe. With hotspots on transport, city networks, foot and retail outlets as well as hospitality venues, 3DS gamers will never be able to leave home without the device as Dawn Paine, Marketing Director at Nintendo UK explained,

“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.”

“Nintendo 3DS continues to evolve and add new features all the time,” she continued.

The Nintendo 3DS , which was released in March this year, didn’t receive the huge sales it was hoping for. Just 710,000 of the 3D game consoles were sold worldwide within the three months leading up to June. Since then, sales figures have failed to reach expectations.

The device has been dramatically reduced in price to attract consumers, not to mention the free Wi-Fi.
