Hulu Plus coming to Nintendo

MUMBAI: Nintendo 3DS and Wii owners will soon have the ability to access even more of their favourite TV shows and movies: the Hulu Plus service will be added to both systems by the end of the year.

Nintendo is also announcing new features being added to the Nintendo 3DS system, including the ability to record 3D videos, new musical artists coming to Nintendo Video and a new animated 3D video from DreamWorks Animation. Additionally, Nintendo 3DS owners will soon see four inventive downloadable Nintendo-published games and applications delivered to the Nintendo eShop, the portable one-stop shop for fun, cool and interesting entertainment options.

Nintendo US president Reggie Fils-Aime said, "Nintendo 3DS continues to evolve with great new features and functions designed to reinforce its position as a premiere entertainment device. All of these features, in addition to great upcoming games like Pokemon Rumble Blast , Super Mario 3D Land on 13 November 2011 and Mario Kart 7 on 4 December make Nintendo 3DS a smart gift option this holiday season."

With Hulu Plus, Wii and Nintendo 3DS users will be able to instantly stream thousands of TV episodes -- including the entire current season of popular shows like Modern Family, Glee, Dancing with the Stars, The Biggest Loser, House and Grey‘s Anatomy -- from premium content partners like ABC, Comedy Central, FOX, NBC, MTV and many more.

Hulu Plus also offers access to classic TV favourites like Lost,
Battlestar Galactica, The Hills and hundreds of popular and
award-winning movies. Hulu Plus is available through a separate subscription fee of $7.99 per month with limited advertising.

At the end of November, a new system update will deliver a range of cool new features and enhancements, including 3D video capture, which will let users record up to 10 minutes of 3D video and enable people to create their own 3D stop-motion animation videos. The update will also add new puzzles to the StreetPass(TM) Mii Plaza(TM) and a new dungeon to Find Mii. Other features will be announced in the future.
Games Coming to the Nintendo eShop:

-- Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive! lets players create creatures and bring them to life. This game is all about creation, customization and exploration. Available in November for $6.99.

-- Developed with 3D game play in mind, Pushmo(TM) asks players to solve more than 250 puzzles by pulling and pushing blocks. Players can also create their own custom puzzles. Launches in December.

-- Swapnote gives Nintendo 3DS owners the chance to send 3D messages to their friends via the SpotPass and StreetPass features. Users can hand-write messages in 3D and also include picture and sound. Available for free download in December.

-- Dillon‘s Rolling Western is a 3D tower defense game that blends action and strategy. It features an armadillo who defends an Old West town rendered in 3D by literally rolling over his enemies. This launches in the first quarter of next year.

Nintendo 3DS owners can now visit the Nintendo eShop and, for $1.99, download a new 3D "Thriller" video that features singing and dancing by their favorite Shrek characters from
DreamWorks Animation.

Fans of the Nintendo Video service on Nintendo 3DS will soon see the arrival of new 3D music videos, including "Don‘t
Stop (Color on the Walls)" from Foster the People‘s Torches album.
