Theme Shop on Nintendo 3DS:

  • New themes this week include:

    • Mario’s Winter Wonderland
    • Pokémon: Peeking Friends

In addition to video games available at retail stores, Nintendo also
offers a variety of content that people can download directly to their
systems. Nintendo adds new games weekly to the Nintendo eShop on the Wii
U console and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the Nintendo DSi
Shop for the Nintendo DSi system and the Wii Shop Channel
for the Wii console.

The Nintendo eShop is a cash-based service that features a wide variety
of content, including new and classic games, applications and demos.
Users can add money to their account balances by using a credit card or
purchasing a Nintendo eShop Card at a retail store and entering the code
from the card. All funds from one card must be loaded in the Nintendo
eShop on either Wii U or the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, but can be
used in either Nintendo eShop if the systems are linked to a single
Nintendo Network account.

The Wii Shop Channel offers games
and applications and uses Wii Points, which can be purchased
via the Wii Shop Channel. The Nintendo DSi Shop offers games and
applications and uses Nintendo DSi Points, which can be
purchased in the Nintendo DSi Shop.

Remember that Wii U, Wii,
Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, Nintendo 2DS and Nintendo DSi feature
parental controls that let adults manage some of the content their
children can access. For more information about this and other features,
