Nintendo UK have learned that people like to get on board giant flying contraptions with the promise of being taken to foreign lands for a break. They have also learned that an airport terminal is not the most fascinating thing in the world (as a flight virgin, I wouldn’t know, but that’s what the stories say). So, the gaming company has teamed up with Boingo to bring free Wi-Fi for 3DS owners at the United Kingdom’s top 7 airports: London Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen.
The Nintendo 3DS will automatically connect when nearby, so there’s no need to search like a boy looking for his mouse or to ask a scary looking security guard for the wireless key.
The United States have had a similar service in some of their airports since last year.
