    I just did a search and it brought up nothing, and Google was no help either. I recently saw one of the GBATemp 3DS friends of mine pop up with a Nintendo Zone Viewer as their favorite game, and remembering that Best Buy was supposed to be getting some special exclusive download stuff I thought I'd go investigate. My Best Buy had nothing, and the people working there had absolutely no clue what I was talking about. So I said to myself "TO THE TEMP!" *classic Batman scene change* So I'm just wondering, who has this? What do you know about it? And where did you get it from?

    I saw it on Nintendo3DSBlog a while ago.

    Also, one of my friends has it as their favorite game (Someone on my friends list. From GBAtemp).

    I Google'd it the other day, and same thing. Didn't find anything. According to Nintendo3DSblog though, it does nothing as of right now. It's just another icon to have, and it's available at Bestbuy.

    You can unlock the channel by visiting a place that has Nintendo zone, which will typically be a store. No content yet, but Best buy is ahead of the game. They're stocking eshop cards already too

    Yay I feel appreciated :3
    Anywho, u go in BestBuy and it gives u a message and it says THERE IS A NINTENDO ZONE IN RANGE and it automatically downloads it to your home screen [​IMG]
    But, since u couldnt seem to get it, wander around the 3DS display b cuz my friend couldnt get it but when we went to ask, he got it near the display. also ur 3DS needs to be open. also nintendo said they were only giving 1000 BestBuys the thing so ur BestBuy might not have gotten it....

    Go here http://www.nintendo.com/3ds/nintendozone and use the map to find a location close to you that carries the Nintendozone.

    Hot Tip: ANYONE CAN GET NINTENDO ZONE.
    Nintendo has a contract with AT&T. Want to know why?..because the Nintendo Zone is actually locked feature that you should be able to access anywhere. But due to the contract with AT&T, they make you think you have to visit "exclusive zones" to access the Nintendo Zone Content. In Short: all you need to do, is just visit an AT&T hotspot.

    *TRANSLATION connect to a wireless access point named "attwifi" (or rename your home connection SSID to it) and boom. Nintendo Zone. :tpi: I use Wireless Tether on my Thunderbolt with a SSID name of "attwifi" and my 3DS connects to Nintendo Zone content fine.

    right now, i'm at my house watching some 3D gameplay of Battleship 3DS...........on Nintendo Zone :D

    seemed like a lot of people didn't know....like some asking if Nintendo Zone will ever come to their area, and some complaining that Nintendo Zone was in short supply, and etc, so I figured I would say this again for anyone who didn't get it the first time (hence the "hot tip" sarcasm) :P
