The System Update for the Nintendo 3DS is available now. The new operating system is the one announced at the Nintendo Direct broadcast this past weekend.
3DS owners will now be able to organise their many scattered home screen icons into handy folders with up to 60 items in each. There’s also a new layout to the eShop, with a useful new recommendation system in place.
Perhaps most importantly, this update will allow for future support of downloadable game patches to update games. The first of those is due in a few weeks and will correct an exploit on Mario Kart 7’s Maka Wuhu course that allowed for a glitched shortcut to be used.
