    I don't know about anyone else but just in case. If you have mariokart I think you should try gyroscope because I lost it after the new update.I don't play in gyroscope because it ridiculously stupid because you don't go fast I just tried it in time trials and it doesn't work. My other games gyroscopes work so. If anyone else's doesn't work please report back here I wanna know

    Try using gyro in another game, maybe OOT with first person aiming. I don't think Nintendo has deactivated it in any games, so I'd be concerned (that is if you even care about it in the 3DS which I don't think anyone really does) that maybe your gyro controls are malfunctioning or no longer work altogether.

    Woah, you're right. I just tried it and you can only use the circle pad in first person mode.

    Finding that out myself.
    Yeah, even I noticed. What's wrong nintendo?
    When you press arrow down, they only show first person camera, but no gyroscop controls.

    Odd that it would be turned off automatically, but yeah there's an option for it. I play in first person mode occasionally and prefer to turn gyro off when I do.
