3DS gets its first firmware update

Despite being very early days yet, Nintendo’s new handheld has already seen its first firmware update.

Nintendo say the update makes “improvements to overall system stability”, applies a SpotPass upgrade “for receiving notifications and other data”, and “enhances network connection functionality … to allow communication with some wireless Internet access points that were previously unavailable”.

To draw in the sceptics, Nintendo have even included a 3D video with the update of Ok Go’s White Knuckles music video. Whether we’ll get the same treatment when the 3DS launches in the UK later today and in the US on the 27th is still unkown. The flood gates have been opened it would seem.

Thanks to CVG for the info.

    From a company that doesn’t seem 2 value the power of the internet its nice 2 c them makin it a priority 4 the 3ds. Hope they contunue 2 update & improve the systems as Sony & Microsoft has done w/ their systems.

    • It is nice, it reminds hardcore gamers that there actually is a 3rd company making consoles.

    its also nice to see them fast in putting up updates. it gives comfort to owners that the 3ds is a device nintendo intends to take as serious as sony and microsoft take their consoles.

    • lol yea cuz they’ve kinda been droppin the ball on that one in recent years.

  • Hopfully the 3Ds isn’t having performance issues so early in the game (no pun intended).
