After nearly a year and on the brink of its death, eShop commercials find their way to the free 3D television service.
Three Nintendo 3DS eShop commercials have appeared on Itsu no Ma ni Terebi, also known as SpotPass TV, in Japan. The commercials are for Tobidasu Purikura, Dillon’s Rolling Western, and Denpa Ningen no RPG. During each of the 15-second commercials, 3DS users can tap a link on the touch screen to take them directly to the eShop, where they can get more information about the game. The application, which is a joint venture between Nihon TV and Fuji TV, aired 15-30 second commercials during each of their programs. Before this, commercials ranged from being for blockbuster movies to children's toys.
The free 3D television service, Itsu no Ma ni Terebi, is scheduled to be taken off the air on June 20. Feel free to check out of a video of the commercials below.
