Nintendo releasing app in Japan to allow for 3DS tethering

Tomorrow, Nintendo plans to release a new smartphone/tablet app in Japan for 3DS tethering. It will essentially allow the portable system to use a phone’s mobile networking. Nintendo’s app is known as “Easy Tethering for Nintendo 3DS”. This acts as a partnership between DoCoMo and the Big N.

Initially, the app will be compatible with the following devices (with more to come in the future):

Smartphone:

  • GALAXY S5 SC-04F
  • Xperia™ Z2 SO-03F
  • AQUOS ZETA SH-04F
  • ARROWS NX F-05F
  • Xperia™ A2 SO-04F

Tablets

  • AQUOS PAD SH-06F
  • Xperia™ Z2 Tablet SO-05F

Easy Tethering for Nintendo 3DS is completely free and will allow customers who have never used tethering before to set up the process smoothly.
Those who download and use the software can then take a survey. Doing so will net them a code for an unspecified 3DS Virtual Console title. The survey will be available from early July to September 30th, 2014.
