Some DSiWare titles won't work on 3DS

Flipnote, Earthworm Jim, more.

Not all DSiWare titles will be transferable to your 3DS when the system's eShop goes live next week.

Nintendo hasn't explained why, but has issued a list of those titles that can't make the jump. Among those affected are acclaimed animation app Flipnote Studio, classic platformer Earthworm Jim and the two Art Academy downloads.

Here's the full list:

  • Art Academy First Semester
  • Art Academy Second Semester
  • Asphalt IV
  • Crash-Course Domo
  • Earthworm Jim
  • Flipnote Studio
  • Hard-Hat Domo
  • Let's Golf
  • Nintendo DSi Browser
  • Oregon Trail
  • Pinball Pulse: The Ancients Beckon
  • Pro-Putt Domo
  • Real Soccer 2009
  • Real Soccer 2010
  • Rock-n-Roll Domo
  • Sudoku Student
  • White-Water Domo

As revealed earlier today, the eShop finally arrives next week, bringing with it a selection of classic Game Boy titles, 3D takes on vintage games, 3DSWare, a web browser and an app that lets you bring DSiWare over from your old device.
