Talking Point: Nintendo's Focus on the 3DS eShop

This week’s European Nintendo Direct prompted the usual range of predictions before the event, ranging from optimistic but unlikely hopes to pessimism and predictability. What Nintendo of Europe boss Satoru Shibata gave us, surprisingly, was a broadcast heavy with eShop exclusives, some new and surprising and others with long-awaited release confirmations. The retail scene was relatively modest, with no real surprises, but there was more than enough download content on offer to get 3DS gamers talking. Nintendo Life explores some of the reasons for the strong upcoming line-up on the 3DS eShop.
