Newest Nintendo 3DS firmware update adds Home Menu layout saving

by Daniel VuckovicMarch 26, 2015

Finally, an update to the Nintendo 3DS that has more than just added stability.

The big change this time is another addition to the Home menu. It allows you to save up to 8 layouts of the home menu, that means you can save and organise your games and apps and then switch them around if you like. Kind of useless at the moment but maybe the Japanese only Collectable Badge Center will be released outside of Japan and the usefulness will peak above 0.

There’s also changes to the Theme Shop and on original Nintendo 3DS and 2DS units amiibo settings have been added. You’ll need to the amiibo adapter for this which is still due to be released later this year.

Changes to HOME Menu:

      • A Home Menu Layout setting has been added to HOME Menu Settings. Users can save and load up to 8 layouts of the HOME Menu with different theme and software icon arrangements

Changes to Theme Shop:

      • Additional categories have been added under “View More” for easier navigation of the Theme Shop

Improvements to system stability and usability:

      • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL, and Nintendo 2DS Systems Only:

Changes to HOME Menu Settings

      • amiibo Settings has been added to HOME Menu Settings. amiibo Settings allows users to register an amiibo owner and nickname, delete data written to an amiibo by supported software, or reset an amiibo*
      *This feature will require a peripheral device scheduled to launch in 2015


What's your reaction?
Oh wow!

    Wake me when they add support to customize controls for Virtual Console titles, or confirm that they will never do that for the 3DS.
