Nintendo 3DS System Update Adds 3D Video Recording Functionality And More

Experience incredible gameplay featuring real 3D graphics with no need for special glasses. The Nintendo 3DS system opens up a whole new world of eye-popping gameplay possibilities.

“The addition of these new features demonstrates how Nintendo 3DS continues to grow and evolve,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Nintendo 3DS is our most connected system to date, and the added functionality strengthens the system’s position as a must-have holiday gift.”

Some of the features available with the system update include the ability to record up to 10 minutes of glasses-free 3D video in continuous or stop-motion style. Now users can capture moments from sporting events or family gatherings, or make their own imaginative 3D movies to share with friends. In the Nintendo eShop, it’s now easier to buy and download your purchases. Use your credit card to purchase content by adding only the needed funds. You can choose to Download Now or Download Later. Cue up the games and videos you want and let the system do the rest in Sleep Mode. Fans of StreetPass Mii Plaza™ will enjoy updates to Find Mii and Puzzle Swap. Nintendo 3DS owners can transfer photos, audio recordings and games, including save data, to other Nintendo 3DS systems.

With the new system update, Nintendo Zone is now available for the first time at more than 29,000 Nintendo 3DS Hotspot locations. Nintendo Zone offers users free and automatic access to game previews, 3D videos, trivia challenges, retailer promotions, coupons and much more.

Additionally, Nintendo is adding more than 2,800 Nintendo 3DS Hotspot locations in the United States and Canada, including hotels, airports and malls. These new Nintendo 3DS Hotspot locations include 42 Boingo airports, 800 iBAHN hotels, 13 Westfield Malls and more than 2,000 Bell Canada Hotspots. This brings the total number of free Nintendo 3DS Hotspots to more than 29,000, which already includes 25,000 AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspots, approximately 1,000 Best Buy stores nationwide and nearly 200 Simon Malls. Nintendo 3DS owners can find a Nintendo 3DS Hotspot by visiting this website.

Nintendo 3DS owners who have downloaded previous system updates do not need to do anything, as the new update will happen automatically. Users who have never performed an update before can update by going to the main menu, tapping System Settings, then Other Settings, then System Update.

All of the upgrades are available at no additional charge to Nintendo 3DS owners.
