3DS Gets First Firmware Update

There really isn’t any way to make that headline more appealing. I mean, I was going for ‘Nintendo 3DS gains sentience, takes hostages (gains firmware update)’, but I was given a right telling off.

So, news from Japan is that the console has already received a firmware update. The list of changes has been translated from Japanese, so bear with us:

  • Improved system stability
    More comfortable way to enjoy, and will improve the overall stability of the system.
  • Updating communications capabilities
    We extend some of the ability to receive data, such as Oshirase.
  • Improved network connectivity
    And other wireless Internet access in some Nintendozon, sometimes can not communicate it made measures.
  • “3D images of live music ” added
    Delivering music is “Super Mario Brothers Theme” in, O. Kondou Hiroshi was responsible for the Super Mario series composer (piano) is playing with studio musicians (we think this means a new song has been added).

No mention of any anti-piracy updates to solve the R4 issue, so we wonder if another update is in the works.

  1. “I was going for ‘Nintendo 3DS gains sentience, takes hostages (gains firmware update).”

    That sounds oddly familiar.

    • Fortunately it isn’t year 2348 yet :)

  2. Ah good that they’re improving it while we wait patiently ;)

  3. New firmware to stop hacking maybe?

  4. Hmmmm no hacking fix, strange.
