Official Nintendo App supporting 3DS tethering coming to Japan

Nintendo is finally initiating their “mobile” support as the Nintendo brand makes its way to mobile market. Nintendo has gone with agreements with 3rd party company DoCoMo to bring an fast, easy way for users in Japan to be able to connect their 3DS to their phones in a more accessible way.


The service commences tomorrow and will launch exclusively for the Samsung Galaxy S5, with more smartphones and tables to be added on a future date. All you need to do is go to the Google Play Store and download it (if your device is supported). Here’s a list given so far for the supported devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S5 — May 15, 2014
  • Sony Xperia Z2 — May 21, 2014
  • Sharp Aquos Zeta — May 23, 2014
  • Fujitsu Arrows NX — Will be released in late May 2014
  • Sony Xperia A2 — To be released in mid-June 2014


  • Sharp Aquos PAD – To be released in mid-June 2014
  • Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet – Will be released in late June 2014


More devices are coming with support soon. Interestingly enough, no Apple devices are in the list, maybe they will be added in the future? Would you like an app within similar lines comes to the West? Let’s hope Nintendo does the same over here in the western territories.
