The eShop is an online store that lets users download games directly onto their 3DS handhelds. It will also feature an Internet browser.
Nintendo has been promising to give players access to the store since the gaming gadget launched in March.
The eShop was expected to launch sometime this month.
Nintendo’s handheld has been selling well, but could definitely use an infusion of new games. The company needs a win with the 3DS and the next Wii — it announced in April that company profits had fallen 66 percent from the previous year.
