3DS e-portal delayed until May

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has thrown doubts over previous claims that the 3DS eShop will arrive in time for the handheld’s launch.

The eShop – which is the handheld’s new online games portal – will install in 3DS devices via a system update, according to previous claims from Nintendo.

Nintendo previously said a system update will be available on launch day.

But doubts are now thrown over that previous claim, with Iwata telling investors that the 3DS’ first system update “is scheduled for late May, at almost the same time around the world.”
