Satoru Iwata has detailed the eShop-related improvements that will be made available through a system update late next month. Iwata primarily discussed DLC, demos and enhancements to the download process. He also teased revealed upcoming PC/smartphone functionality for the shop.

Iwata shared the following information with investors:

- Once a title is released, a developer can add content to it through the eShop
- Nintendo believes more developers will now increase the amount of titles for the shop
- Publishers can provide demos to consumers
- These demos can be limited by the number of trials
- Over one million reviews have been contributed worldwide for titles on the eShop
- Can download software while 3DS is in sleep mode with the update
- This will put an end to users having to wait patiently while several software titles are downloading at the same time or while a title with a large-file size is downloading
- Access eShop through the Web
- This means you can get to the shop on PCs or smartphones
- Nintendo wants to solve the issue of information (including reviews) being restricted to the eShop only
- If a game receives high marks from consumers, a majority of people won’t know about it unless they access the shop on the 3DS; Nintendo wants to change this in the future
- Won’t be able to purchase software directly on your PC/smartphone at the beginning
- Take a photo of a QR code at the eShop by using the 3DS camera
- 3DS will then open that specific page on the eShop
- This function will be included in the system update in November
- Nintendo will allow consumers to buy software directly on their PC/smartphone
