A YouTube application for the Nintendo 3DS was promised during the Nintendo Direct segment earlier this month and after an update for the Wii U version was released yesterday, many 3DS owners were wondering what that meant for the 3DS app. Today though, the application has crept onto the Nintendo eShop, where it can be downloaded for free.
The Nintendo 3DS certainly isn’t a console made with streaming in mind, which is most likely why 3D game trailers tend to be free downloads on the eShop as opposed to streamed, so the video quality of the application is more in line with YouTube’s mobile applications as opposed to console ones. I personally had a crash half-way through trying to watch a 1:30 minute video. So…use with caution?
