Nintendo have confirmed that their partnership with the Eurosport Group will see the company provide 3D sports video content for Nintendo 3DS owners.
This will be accessed through a dedicated Eurosport video player application that will release on the Nintendo eShop for free, and is to deliver video content through the handheld’s SpotPass function.
Content will launch weekly from December 15th, and is to continue throughout the next year, encompassing short 3D videos taken from Eurosport’s popular WATTS programme, which takes an irreverent look at sport with a mix of exhilarating sporting action and the funniest sporting outtakes.
“We are always striving to bring fun and exciting new content to our fans and this new partnership with Eurosport will do just that”, commented Laurent Fischer, managing director of marketing & PR at Nintendo of Europe. “We are looking forward to launching the WATTS videos each week along with a host of other 3D content on Nintendo Video™ from our various partners.”
“The 3D clips from WATTS, one of Eurosport’s most established programmes, are guaranteed to engage and entertain Nintendo 3DS users,” says Heather Bowler, Global Communications Director, Eurosport . “Eurosport and Nintendo are both leaders within their industries so there is a natural brand fit with this collaboration, which will extend our reach within an important target audience.”
