JiWire, the leading provider of information and services to help people connect to the Internet without wires, today announced that Nintendo has licensed JiWire’s hotspot directory for its new wireless gaming service, Nintendo(R) Wi-Fi Connection. The partnership with JiWire will allow Nintendo DS users to quickly find free hotspot locations, so they can connect and play Nintendo’s cutting-edge portable games anytime, almost anywhere.
