Nintendo 3DS owners now have a ticket to free, exclusive 3D video content. The new Nintendo Video service automatically delivers short 3D videos from the worlds of music, comedy, animation and Hollywood, and the 3D content can be watched without the need for special glasses.

On July 27, OK Go will launch a new music video and will debut the 3D version exclusively on Nintendo Video.

“Nintendo 3DS is a unique platform for creativity,” said Tony Elison, Nintendo of America’s senior director and general manager of Network Business. “OK Go and all our partners are helping us make Nintendo Video a one-of-a-kind entertainment experience.”
