Nintendo has begun rolling out another minor system update for Nintendo 3DS. Available now, version 9.7.0-25U adds further improvements to overall system stability and implements other minor adjustments to enhance the user experience. By this update we would imagine that the Nintendo 3DS is BEYOND stable and we can’t understand how much more stable it can get.
The New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL have kicked off sales with healthy numbers during its first two days on sale. The Nintendo handhelds have sold approximately 335,000 units across the U.S and Europe, according to Nintendo’s financial results briefing published today. Roughly 175k of the New Nintendo 3DS XL were sold in the U.S, while Europe tallied around 160k in sales from both models.
Nintendo has to be pleased with these numbers and we are eager to hear more. Did you get a New 3DS system?
