Nintendo announces Sparkle Snapshots 3D for 3DS eShop

Photo-editing software costs £4.50, with paid DLC.

Nintendo will launch 3DS photo-editing software Sparkle Snapshots this week as a paid download from the eShop.

You might picture such software would come free. Well, you'd be painting the wrong impression for yourself. Nintendo has designs to charge £4.50 for this latest masterpiece.

And, confusingly, photos taken with the software will not display in 3D. That's despite saying "3D" in the software's name.

Mario and Mario Kart 7-themed extras are available to download as paid DLC for 90p each.

More Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy DLC also hits the eShop this week. Four new tracks are added, each 90p: The Archylte Steppe (FF13 - FMS), Matoya's Cave (FF01 - FMS), Battle 1 (FF03 - BMS) and The Final Battle (FF05 - BMS).

Also in this Thursday's update: time-sensitive puzzler 99Seconds (£1.80) and mini-game collection Topoloco (£4.50), both for DSiWare. Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition hops onto WiiWare, meanwhile. It will cost 1000 Wii Points (about £7).

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy.
