Nintendo's New 3DS Browser Comes With Content Filter

posted on 2014-08-30 23:48 EDT by Lynzee Loveridge

The recently announced new Nintendo 3DS model comes with a browser content filter. Users must pay a one-time 30 yen (about US$0.29) fee with connected credit card information to remove the content restriction. The feature is intended as a parental control.

Nintendo implemented a similar feature on its Wii U console. The company charges a US$.50 fee to create a Nintendo Network ID for players under the age of 13.

The new Nintendo 3DS models will be available in Japan on October 11.

Thanks to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.
