3DS System Software 9.3.0-21U Now Live

New Nintendo 3DS Themes

Don’t be so confused by the numbering: a new 3DS system update is now available for download. In addition to the usual “system stability” polish, this new firmware adds a new function: the ability to shuffle your themes on the HOME menu. What this does is allow users to pick a quotient of favorite themes they’ve downloaded, and watch them change up after sleep mode awakens. The official description explains:

A Shuffle Favorites feature has been added under Change Theme in HOME Menu Settings. Users can choose multiple themes and have their theme change when the system is left in Sleep Mode from the HOME Menu or turned on after being off
Available software updates can now be downloaded from the HOME Menu
Users can now capture screenshots with both the upper and lower screens included
Improvements to system stability and usability:

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

In addition, New 3DS owners in Japan and Australia get a bonus patch: amiibo functionality, as demonstrated by the below video.

As North America and Europe won’t get the New 3DS, which includes built-in NFC on the touch screen, until next year, it’s unlikely this extra functionality was included in those regions at this time.
