Nintendo wraps up 3D TV service for 3DS in Japan, more

updated 11:07 am EDT, Fri May 11, 2012

Nintendo will no longer sell Aqua Blue 3DS

The 3D TV clip service for the 3DS console Nintendo launched last June in Japan will be discontinued on June 20, making its run just under a year. Called Itsu no Ma ni Terebi, it translates to SpotPass TV, and features short, two-minute 3D clips from eight shows. The service was brought out in collaboration with Fuji TV. Nintendo will continue to offer 3D videos intermittently through its Nintendo Video Channel.

At the same time, Nintendo will discontinue the Aqua Blue-colored 3DS, which was one of the original colors for the portable games console. The reason for the drop isn't known, but a purple 3DS will replace it on May 20. [via Kotaku and The Verge]
