Nintendo Planning Micro Payment System For 3DS

November firmware update to include payment system support. Nintendo planning compatible games for 2012.


Slides from Nintendo's earnings briefing, which was held in Tokyo earlier today, showed plans to enable download content on 3DS via a November firmware update. What was missing from those slides was mention of a payment system of some form.

Kyodo News reports that CEO Satoru Iwata did touch upon a payment system during his presentation. The November update will include functionality for the payment system, which will allow players to purchase things like new stages following a game's release.

Nintendo plans on releasing software with paid content some time in 2012.
