Nintendo 3DS eShop launching June 6/7th. The service will go live in the US on the evening of June 6th 2011 and Japan on June 7th 2011 to coincide with the start of the Electronics Entertainment Expo 2011 (E3 2011).

The service will start in Japan by offering original 3DS software, emulated handheld games via a Wii-like Virtual Console and DSiWare titles including the ability to migrate DSiWare purchases from Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL consoles. Still unconfirmed is if the eShop will bring with it the Nintendo 3DS' internet browser, a feature glaringly missing from launch 3DS units.

Nintendo had previously said it wanted to release the Nintendo 3DS eShop, which ditches Nintendo's Micro-transaction "Nintendo Points" system in favour of simply showing normal prices, by the end of May.
