Nintendo Europe has announced a new partnership with free-hotspot.com, that will provide 3DS users with a massive 5,000 free hotspot locations to jump on to throughout Europe.
To use the new service you will need to have a Nintendo 3DS Internet Browser to be installed. If you haven’t already downloaded the Nintendo 3DS Internet Browser, you will need to perform a system update on your Nintendo 3DS gaming console.
To trigger the update on your 3DS simply start the “System Settings” from the Home Menu, select “Other Settings” and scroll the page right to select “System Update”. Nintendo Europe explains:
“With such an extensive European-wide Wi-Fi access network, partnering with free-hotspot.com made absolute sense. The access points are largely located in popular restaurants and hotels – places where Nintendo 3DS owners are likely to want, and to unwind in. We also urge all Nintendo 3DS owners to also take advantage of the latest system update which has brought an array of new features and enhancements, including 3D video capture.”
Once the browser is installed on your 3DS, your console will automatically search for and connect to the Internet via free-hotspot.com’s access points across Europe.
