The Internet browser in New 3DS systems come with a pre-installed filter which limits what websites can be visited. Users can immediately turn it off for 30 yen ($0.29) by registering a valid credit card.

Nintendo says that the filter will be used to “prevent children from looking at harmful websites” on the New 3DS. The fee, which goes hand in hand with credit card registration, is necessary so that children cannot disable the filter without their parents’ consent.
