Looking to bring a little order to your
3DS? Nintendo has delivered the latest firmware update for its
three-dimensional handheld adding, among other things, the ability
for players to sort up to 60 icons into individual folders.
Aside from the organizational tweak,
the 4.0.0-7U update also makes it possible for Nintendo to add
post-releases patches for 3DS titles. On the plus side, one of the
first fixes will be a patch for Mario Kart 7's pesky Maka Wuhu
shortcut glitch, scheduled to arrive in May. On the not-so-plus side,
this opens 3DS owners up to the post-release patch-fest that seems to
be all the rage on consoles and computers.
Lastly, today's update brings some
minor redesigns to the 3DS eShop and gives
European 3DS owners access to the Nintendo Zone.
For newbie 3DS'ers (or those who
simply forgot), firmware updates are presented as automatic prompts, provided you're connected to wi-fi.
Failing that, users can kick-start the download by heading into the
3DS's "System Settings", clicking “Other Settings” and tapping
