Hulu Plus for Wii and 3DS in US

Streaming service for $7.99 a month, 3DS firmware update adds 3D video recording

Nintendo will add the video streaming service Hulu Plus to the 3DS and Wii before the end of the year.

The service will only be available to US customers, and will cost $7.99 a month with "limited advertising."

Nintendo also revealed details of the 3DS's November firmware update, which will allow the device to record and store up to 10 minutes of 3D video. Nintendo claims that users will be able to create 3D "stop-motion animation videos."

"Nintendo 3DS continues to evolve with great new features and functions designed to reinforce its position as a premiere entertainment device," said Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime in a statement.

The 3DS saw an immediate improvement in sales following its price-cut, but those figures have declined rapidly since then.
