SideQuesting.com - Nintendo’s 3DS has had a rough first year trying to gain traction in the handheld space and the favor of gamers worldwide. While it has been selling well when compared to the launch of the original DS system, it has had a hard time shaking it’s poor reputation. The price drop has certainly helped build good will to new buyers, and most early adopters seem happy enough with the majority of games picked for the Ambassador program.
But technophiles and gamers are as fickle as they come, and leaving things as they were wasn’t going to cut it in the long term. Thankfully, in a very un-Nintendo-like move, the company has released an update that has added some much needed functionality to the device, and even made it relevant.
