Free Wi-Fi for 3DS owners

Nintendo has announced that a fresh agreement with Wi-Fi provider The Cloud will grant free access to 3DS owners.

Similar to the deal brokered for DS owners, users of the machine will be able to access the internet and online functions for free from any of the network’s 5,000 hotspots.

The functionality will also offer 3DS updates when in sleep mode, so users could well find unexpected goodies after simply walking past a hotspot.

Connection should happen automatically with no console update required.
