The ACCESS NetFront browser has been selected by Nintendo as the new browser engine for its 3DS handheld game console. The Nintendo 3DS was launched in Japan on February 26, and is due to be launched on March 25 in Europe and on March 27 in the United States.
Designed to provide high performance and an exceptional browsing experience in memory and CPU resource-constrained environments, NetFront has already been deployed in over one billion devices throughout the world including smart TVs, mobile phones and e-book readers. In the Nintendo 3DS, NetFront will be used to provide internet browsing functionality.
“I’m enormously proud that our experience and expertise with browser technology has been part of the development of the Nintendo 3DS, which is a revolutionary 3D gaming device. We remain committed to developing new cutting-edge solutions that will support the Nintendo 3DS in the marketplace and promote the ongoing growth and development of the gaming market at the global level,” said Tomihisa Kamada, president and CEO, ACCESS.
Internet browsing features based on the NetFront Browser engine will be released to users via a future update for the Nintendo 3DS.
