The new firmware update for the 3DS was released a few hours ago. You can check after the break for videos.
i 3thought there was a update for the internet browser as well ??? was it a lie or what i thought i could use youtube from now on but i guess not -.-
If the ASUS Transformer can barely handle flash youtube videos in its default browser, I doubt the 3ds could do much better.
Damn. I need to get my grades up so i can get my 3ds back!
I just need to find mine…
ROFL dude … u reminded of the good old days where my mum used to take away the PS1 xD..
thank god I am an adult now … and hope u get ur grades up for the sake of it and for the sake of the 3DS
me too sadly
I have perfect grades in all honors.
Except for AP World History…
I have a 98-ish…
@Holonboy: you must go to a really easy school.
@Holonboy: You think you wuld be smart enough to study World History
YOUR JUST LIKE ME XD BUT I NEED MINE BACK UP SO I CAN GET MY PSP,3DS, AND MY PS3 LUCKILY I STILL HAVE MY WII AND VITA BUT I FEEL INCOMPLETE WITHOUT MY GAMES
Not interesting, Sexy!
Like I said in the comment of another post, this update is disappointing.
Blue folder? Nintendo is not Sony or Apple, why use folder when you can called it a ‘container’ and use a treasure chest icon instead or a boring folder.
Because folders are generic, everyone understand them. Just because it’s nintendo doesn’t mean they have to do it in a different special way.
Nintendo is a game company, its all suppose to be fun, not generic!
Blue folder belongs on a Mac, not on 3DS.
does it matter.stop complaining and use it already! at least you can sort everything out and color dosn’t matter.
Such a stupid nitpicking comment if i’ve ever heard one. You say it is not sony or apple, yet is it not apple or sony or microsoft who gave you that stupid idea of having a different icon as a folder. Such as the trash folder…..just like where your comment should be.
No, its Xerox.
In my opinion, just the fact that they exist is fun.
Actually i didnt think of it until you mentioned it but when i think about it i can agree that they could for sure made something fun out of it like what you said , a treasure chest…..Its the small things that you appreciate. But still its great we get folders, i hate 100 icons on the front page
So you’re gonna bitch over the color blue?
I like the color blue.
i dont like the way you talk about the folders, but i agree
nintendo tends to do things their own way and tthe treasure chest idea is awesome
@psvita is better, Has Nintendo Not Done Enough 4 Us? Yes They Have. So None Of Should Complain About The Colors Of The Folders That Are OPTIONAL.
i am not complaining, i am saying it is a good idea
The majority of the 3ds’ menus and stuff has orange… I hate orange. >:(
Loving the update…
its not that special. the eshop looks more complicated now. and we cant even change the color of folders.
You want a lawsuit with that?
i hate getting free folders i dont have to use
Thats It!!!Im getting the cobalt blue N3DS!!!It looks so awsome!!!uhhh …Now I have to work my but off again!!!
Weird thing is, when I connect to the e-shop, it asks me if I want to link my club nintendo account. wich is unavaliable where I live. so the option to link it wasn´t on the e-shop before, since I have Mexico as my region. I wonder If this is a mistake, or a change in nintendo policy
Ummm… I think Club Nintendo is available in Mexico. Club Nintendo is available in North America, and Mexico is in North America. It’s not for the states only.
Never mind. Apparently, they do not provide rewards for Mexico (yet). But they are working on a rewards program for Latin America.
Yes, I checked, since I had some games and sistems to register. but it is only avaliable in US and Canada. but it doesn´t really matter, there´s a workaround. I was just surprised that the e-shop asked me to link (I tried, but it hasn´t been able to link my “american” account)
Puerto Rico is in Latin America, if it even counts in it, (where a colony of the states) and we get American rewards… -_-
there is also no nintendo video in latin america
Yeah, the lack of it makes it pointless to download, along with nintendo zone cause it practically only works in USA and maybe some others but still I barely get street pass in this country even less a point to connect to that thing…
sucks that only one letter applies on the folder, now i can’t quickly see my GBA, NES, Video Trailers & Demos folder ):
Uhhh …You have to go to setting’s and then push rename!!!And If your tallking about the icon !then put a diferent letter at the begining of each folder and the your icon will have like -if its Apps then the letter a will be on the Icon !if its 3DSware then the number 3 will apear!I hope that helped!PEACE OUT!!!
Yeah, that’s what he was complaining about. Bugs the crap out of me. I think the single character on the folders is kind of ugly.
I live in North America and I got my update a day early!
What else is new apart from folders and eShop update?
That’s it. Nothing else that’s new.
Ty is lying, they fixed the annoying accidental L and R camera activation, now if you tap L or R it won’t go to the camera, you gotta hold the button down for a fraction of a second, tapping won’t do it.
I wasn’t lying. Forgot about that. Sheesh. Also, that’s a really small change… Don’t think that’s going to make his day.
it made mine.
Oh, and games can be patched and recieve DLC.
it is a big change, seriously do you know how many times i accidentally press r or l?
it happens a lot, even somebody made a joke about that
See? People appreciate the simple things in life too :3 lols I pressed it on accident quite a few times myself lol it’s a nice change.
What else is new?
The update is pretty good. I love the new eShop, but I hate how you can’t change the look of the folders. I was hoping you could change the icon to like stars or little icons. I hope they change that in the future. The blue looks dumb.
At first I was thinking about arranging my games in folders for each system, but then I figured, what’s the point of that, I don’t care what system the game is from, I care what type of game it is, so the folders I created are as follows:
Applications, Action/Adventure, Demos, Mii, Puzzle, Racing, and Videos/Trailers
Btw, did anyone else notice the L and R camera accidental activation fix? Now if you accidentally tap the button it won’t do anything, you have to hold it down for a little.
The folders are cool. But it bugs me that it shows the first character of the name on the touchscreen icon, you can’t see what’s in the folders without opening them (you can on iOS), and the folders look ugly.
Still no Visa Electron support. Man the eShop is dead to me.
that update looks like pure crap
go phuck yourself you stupid dumba$$
go have sex with your mammy
i totally looove our eshop but MAN japans eshop is sooo awesome!!
How do YOU know? #skepticalnerd
…oh wait the videos…Riiiiiiiiiiiiight
Errrrrgghh. Nintendo! Y U NO GIVE US BETTAR INTERNET BROWERZ?!
At least it’s better than DSi Browser.
@George It’s not that hard to have a better browser than the DSi’s.
How do you put stuff into folders? I got the update, but I can’t figure out how, and the video didn’t really explain it.
Go to an empty space, in there it will say to create one, you make it, and then drag whatever you want. Also in the settings of the folder you can change the name for it
Go to a empty block, and at the bottom, it will say ‘Create Folder.’
The incessant complaining about what the update lacks must really be aggravating for Nintendo. I think the only reasonable complaint when it comes to folders is the fact that only one letter of the word appears on the front (a limitation no doubt brought on the by the screen’s resolution and the fact that you can shrink icon sizes to miniscule levels). The amount of the word visible should be proportionate to the size of icon. Complaining about the fact that you can’t color code folders or that their not “treasure Chest” or something more interesting is a bit petty to me.
The eshop is also much improved in terms of functionality. It should be much easier to more quickly find what you were looking for. All they need to do now for me is add two panels: Categories, and updates (that has an icon with how many updates are available).
i pretty much agree with your statement.
The eshop would be a lot better if it had a way to right reviews of the games you buy and download!!!Then again people that use bad words would make it a nonchild friendly site!!!
There could be a moderator on the shop making sure they don’t make swearing, racial, sexual, and threatening abuse, also for spam and evading stuff that could make someone feel bad or something similar.
NOT Earl, you deserve a cookie.
@My name is NOT Earl: It’s a nice idea but I doubt Nintendo will intend to do such a thing as to having a moderator controlling reviews…
Too many folders, not enough Windows and blue screens :(
NEED. A. JAPANESE. 3DS.
NEED E-SHOP POINTS!
BUT FOR A STUPID REASON THEY’RE NOT IN THE NETHERLANDS
Nintendo sells them to suppliers… for 20 dollars a card. Only huge stores can carry them in hopes you’ll get something else while you’re there.
It’s a terrible idea. The Nintendo devs are a little nutty, but the business side needs to get it’s act together.
Actually, there is something else new. There are now more tiles on the home menu. Normally, when you zoomed out the whole way on the home screen, The whole menu was visible. Now, we can see that Nintendo has doubled the space on the home menu.
There were originally 60 spaces on the home menu. Now if you look, there is now 120 spaces, which is double the original space.
That’s not true, before when you where getting close to filling the page up, it would add another. You probably just have more apps than last time you checked and that’s why you have another page.
this update is complete mess, bullshit, crap and garbage just like the system itself
This Guy Is Getting Really Annoying -_- I Wish David Or Franco Could Ban Him Forever.
joshua, well if your shitty ass don’t like it, leave the blog dammit

Come on people, I ain’t defending him, but I rather not talk to him, I mean, hasnt someone teached you not to feed the trolls? You should only ignore him, period
Did Any1 Else Notice The New Music On The Home Menu? :)
Yea i noticed
Each time Nintendo updates this system, it gets better and better. Nice improvement with the Home Menu folders. Mine now spell V-O-N-G; Videos, Other Games, NES Games, and (you guessed it) – GBA Games. I have no idea what that means. Hi Hi…
Wow!! that color purple looks hot!!! but i’m satisfied with my cosmo black.
oops wrong post.
On the eShop, there is a button that allows you to Filter Search. You can search by genre. It seems to list game genres and then software genres. Some of the software genres listed are “Social Networking” and “Women”. If you search with only “Social Networking”, there are no results.
Facebook or Twitter app?
Yes! I thought I was the only one that noticed the “Social Networking” genre! I was thinking YouTube app since people have bugged Nintendo’s channel to DEATH about a YT App.
Agreed. My Facebook On The Internet Browser Has Been Acting Werid Since The Update! IDK Whats Wrong Though…
Actually, Facebook started working BETTER for me after the update. Originally, I was unable to upload pictures from the 3DS onto the site, but now it lets me!
Best. Update. Ever.
More Like 3rd Best Behind The Eshop & 3D Video Recording Update :P
I found this update to be kind of “meh”. I like the folders, but the eShop changes aren’t “significant”.
Hey when is that blue color coming to north America
