The Nintendo 3DS has a brand new system update

Nintendo has released a brand new system update for the original Nintendo 3DS, almost nine months after the previous one.

As spotted by VGCversion 11.15.0-47 is currently available for download for all 3DS consoles in all regions, and depending on the patch notes which have been translated, it brings “improvements to system stability and usability”.

Dataminer OatmealDome investigated the update and shared their thoughts on Twitter saying that the official Japanese patch notes list “stability” as the main update.

“It appears to be updating the internet browser (possibly fixing an exploit?) and the recovery mode SSL system component,” OatmealDome said.

This is the first Nintendo 3DS system update in nearly nine months, with the latest released on November 16, 2020.

In September 2020, Nintendo officially stopped production of the 3DS, nine years after the success of portable markets.

Last month, the company announced that it also plans to stop card payments on 3DS and Wii U eShops from January 22, 2022.

However, other details indicate that available payments will still include prepaid cards, debit or credit cards through Nintendo’s website, as well as adding balance to Nintendo Accounts through the Switch eShop.

Additionally, recent rumors suggest that Nintendo will also be removing 3DS and Wii U eShop games altogether.

A source claims to have received a note detailing the end of submissions for console eShops, with the presumed deadline being April 1, 2022.

Meanwhile, Valve’s Steam Deck apparently isn’t trying to compete with the Nintendo Switch.
