See our hotspot finder and download the latest system update, all for Nintendo 3DS


As announced in the first dedicated European Nintendo Direct, which took place on the 21st of April, the latest system update for Nintendo 3DS unlocks a host of useful features to help you enjoy your system to the full.

Available to download* today, the latest system update imparts the ability to create folders on the Nintendo 3DS HOME Menu, allowing you to more easily organise and manage all of your applications and software.

This system update also provides the ability to apply software updates, the first of which will be made available in mid-May for Mario Kart 7. This update will resolve issues that users may have experienced with unfair shortcuts during online play; keep your eyes peeled for more information on this very soon!

Once you perform the system update, you’ll also be able to stay connected on the go, with the ability to access Nintendo Zone** from around 25,000 supported public Wi-Fi access points across Europe. Nintendo Zone is a free, location-based interactive service that allows you to access exciting free content, including 2D and 3D game trailers, product information, screenshots, game demos and video clips. If you’re not sure where your closest access point can be found, then take a look at our smart new hotspot finder for Nintendo 3DS, which will show you exactly where you can get your system online while out and about.
