Thanks to the recently launched Samurai Warriors Chronicles website, it’s become somehow confirmed the Nintendo 3DS is capable of receiving downloadable content and, quite possibly, patches. The aforementioned website specifically affirms you’ll be able to “download additional stages after release“, as well as stating the StreetPass feature will be used in order to battle other people and getting “new weapons and items“.
Traditionally, Nintendo systems have been somewhat lackluster in how they implement the various online features, from having to use different and clumsy friend codes in every single game, to the lack of after-release support in their titles. It seems, however, the Nintendo 3DS is finally adressing all those issues into a seamless and cutting-edge handheld. About time, Nintendo!
The Nintendo 3DS is the successor to the highly successful Nintendo DS system; it features advanced graphics, analog and motion control and real 3D images without the need of special glasses. It’s scheduled to be released on March 27, 2011 at an MSRP of $249.99.
