Dust your 3DS and plug it back into the starting charge – Nintendo’s beloved handheld has received its first firmware update in almost a year. It’s not a major or important one, though – just a nice reminder that 3DS exists.
The new update, which takes the system to version 11.14.0-46U, includes a single update line that will be familiar to Nintendo fans: “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments to enhance the user experience.” Have been made. “
The wording, which is slightly different from the switch’s counterpart, appears several times in the 3DS update log.
The previous firmware update for the console came on December 2, 2019, and focused on a StreetPass issue. The last “stability” update took place on November 4, 2019.
In September, the 3DS was officially discontinued, meaning that Nintendo is no longer producing portable consoles. The system sold over 75 million units during its lifetime – nearly half of what the Nintendo DS sold.
There were a lot of late-life games in 3DS that you might have missed after switching, including WarioWare Gold, Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, and Persona Q2. For more information, see GameSpot’s 3DS Game Review page.
