‎3DS Firmware Update Now Available

Posted on December 7, 2011 AT 06:20am

THE BUZZ: Nintendo has released its long awaited 3DS firmware update, which adds 3D video recording among other features.

The update also adds the ability to purchase in-game DLC and adds some new StreetPass features, adding a new puzzle to the Puzzle Swap game and a new dungeon to StreetPass Quest. The final major addition is Nintendo Accomplishments, its answer to achievements/trophies, which are currently only available for the Mii Plaza.

EGM’s TAKE: The chance to record 3D videos will be a fun novelty for a while but expect players to get bored quickly and demand deeper features.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
