Nintendo Video eShop commercials are a group of promotional videos released on the Nintendo Video application on the Nintendo 3DS to promote the 3DS eShop.


Nintendo Video was an application released on Nintendo 3DS systems in July 2011. The service hosted various videos users can download to their systems through the system's SpotPass feature. Up to four videos can be stored on the app at a time.

Lost Videos

One such group of videos were created to promote the 3DS eShop and how it can download full retail games to their system starting with New Super Mario Bros. 2 in August 2012. The videos are unavailable to be viewed online as well as the eShop itself when Nintendo discontinued Nintendo Video in 2015 and made most of the videos that were available on the service, viewable on the eShop.

Description of Service from Nintendo of Europe

With a broad range of 2D and 3D videos available, such as movie trailers, sports clips, music videos, cartoons and more, there is sure to be content to appeal to everyone!
