Some more 3DS news for you, there’s an update coming at the end of November that will bring 3D video capture and new puzzles to Street Pass along with some other things not mentioned just yet. Hulu Plus will be coming as well to both the Wii and 3DS, but of course you’ll have to pay $7.99 per month for it, no mention if it will be separate from your existing Hulu Plus subscription though, but I would hope it wouldn’t be that’s for sure. Freakforms, Pushmo, Swapnote and Dillon’s Rolling Western will also be coming to the eShop as well with varying launch dates. As of now though you can hope over and grab some 3D animations like Thriller done by the Shrek characters, with more being added soon.
