Nintendo has announced that pre-loading, a feature that lets users download a portion of any digital game that they might be purchasing, before the release date to ensure that they can start playing it right away at midnight (and also to reduce the stress on companies’ servers), will be coming to both, the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U. The Wii U gets it first, with the feature being made available for it in November, ahead of the release of Super Smash Bros. (which will also be the first game to support this feature).

3DS owners will have to wait a little- Nintendo has announced that the 3DS won’t be getting pre-loading until 2015. Presumably, Nintendo will time it to coincide with the worldwide launch of the New Nintendo 3DS, or something.

Pre-loading, of course, is a feature that has already been available on PC for a while, and the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita have been supporting it for a few months as well. It’s good to see Nintendo allowing it on their systems too, especially since it’s something that only benefits everyone involved.
