Many have been patiently awaiting the Nintendo 3DS system update for a while now. The previous date given was November 30, but after a recent note from Nintendo of America on November 28, it looks like 3DS owners will have to wait another week, making it available by December 8.
The upcoming Nintendo 3DS system update is in the final stages of internal testing and will be available by December 8. We will provide an additional update once the system update is officially available.
The update is said to include a few things including 3D video recording via the Nintendo 3DS Camera, new game content in StreetPass Mii Plaza (including Find Mii II), and transfer of downloaded software and data between Nintendo 3DS systems.
