Nintendo 3DS list of changes for December update – disappointed?

By Updated on

For a while now we have been awaiting a system update for the Nintendo 3DS, today we can finally confirm what changes this update will bring and when it will become officially available.

Apparently the update is currently in the final stages of testing, however the Nintendo website has clearly stated that it will become available by December 8 (originally is was supposed to arrive in November). Whether this means it will arrive on this date, or prior to this date is currently unclear.

Once the update hits your 3DS you will be able to use the console’s camera to record 3D video, also there will be new functionality which allows you to transfer downloaded software between Nintendo 3DS systems. If you are a fan of StreetPass Mii Plaza you will be glad to hear that new content has been added, including Find Mii II.

There will undoubtedly be some changes which are less noticeable such as bug fixes, user interface tweaks and performance enhancements, however such details have not yet been divulged – therefore we will keep you posted if and when we hear further details.

When the software update goes live we will let you know. You can find out how to perform the update here, it’s pretty simple just ensure that you are connected to the Internet, go into ‘Settings’, then into ‘Other Settings’, scroll across to page 4 and tap ‘System Update’ – if an update is found simply follow the on-screen instructions to carry out the installation.

Although we think that the changes which this update brings will be welcomed by 3DS owners we can’t help but think that gamers wanted more, anyone remember the 10 free Game Boy Advance Virtual Console titles which were promised before the end of 2011?

Are you slightly disappointed by the short changelog?
