Nintendo has rolled out a brand new channel that will allow gamers to access new games not available in stores as well as a host of new services.
The company claims that this new channel allows a user to watch videos, search for games, download game demos to your Nintendo DS, and even recommend games you’ve played.
Watch videos – from trailers, mini-documentaries, TV commercials, product demonstrations and game play videos. When you access Nintendo Channel you can view the latest videos, simply click on the one you want to watch for it to play.
Search for games – browse the game guide pages to find information on your favourite Wii and Nintendo DS games. Search by release date, platform, publisher, genre, or by keywords. Once you find the game you’re looking for, click on the game’s title to find out more detailed information.
DS Download Play – using the DS Download Service, you can download game demos and videos on to your Nintendo DS! Choose a game demo, select ‘DS Download Play’ on your Nintendo DS, and moments later you’ll be playing the latest game demos. Your demos will be playable until the Nintendo DS is turned off.
Recommend games – after you’ve played a Wii game for over an hour, the Nintendo Channel allows you to rate it. Everybody’s opinion counts! Enter your gender and age, rate the game, and recommend if you think it should be played alone or with friends. Results are then graphed and will be published on an ongoing basis to help you find games based on other people’s recommendations.
