More music videos coming to 3DS today

Nintendo Video, the bizarrely unpredictable passive-delivery video service for 3DS, is getting an infusion of new music. If you've left SpotPass on, your system is likely already downloading music videos including Wale's "Sabotage" and B.o.B.'s "So Good."

Future releases include The Shins' "The Rifle's Spiral," OKGo's "Skyscrapers," Skrillex's "Breakn' a Sweat," Death Cab for Cutie's "Underneath the Sycamore" and "Save World Get Girl" by chiptune/rock band I Fight Dragons.
