Nintendo 3DS owners will be able to enjoy online gaming while they wait in some of the UK's biggest airports, thanks to a new connectivity deal between Nintendo and Boingo Wireless.
Thanks to the new arrangement, 3DS users can connect seamlessly and automatically to wireless hotspots at London's Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports, as well as Southampton, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen.
It means players will be able to enjoy titles such as Mario Kart 7 online or receive new content to their systems via the SpotPass data transmission feature.
They can also visit their favourite internet sites using the console's in-built browser, or check out the Nintendo eShop to purchase new downloadable games and applications.
Nintendo's Dawn Paine said: "Boingo is an excellent partner for Nintendo 3DS owners in the United Kingdom due to an extensive airport Wi-Fi network."
The 3DS features some of the most robust online services seen on a Nintendo console, allowing players to download classic Mario and Zelda titles, receive new features such as 3D video recording and instant messaging, or download playable demos of hot new titles.
