    Allegedly at the end of this week, SOME of us are getting the major update that brings all manner of goodies. This thread exists firstly as a hype thread, and secondly to gather reliable sources of information about it- so far all I can find is "expected to launch November the 4th". Nintendo seemed pretty certain that it would launch November 4th but then I started hearing rumours of the Australians not getting it until the 22nd or so. Is there any real information out there yet?

    Also the so called E-shop overhaul may or may not be a part of it, please direct me to threads that I have probavly overlooked that detail these things while you discuss in this one what (if anything) you are excited about.

    Personally I didn't think I'd be bothered by the 3D video camera but the stop motion capability makes me look forward to it more, hopefully the sound capture linked to it will do it justice

    Been here a while now, just realised I have NO IDEA how to change a title :blink:
    Pretty sure people will guess it's for the 3DS....

    For me, nothing interesting.

    eShop needs quality content, not an overhaul or new ways to handle transactions. Until now, they've only managed to publish 1 dedicated 3DS game.

    Video recording might be useful if users could convert their own videos to be watched on 3DS. Photos taken with 3DS camera already look like total shit, just imagine these low-bitrate overcompressed videos !

    Where are new AR games ?

    Where are GBA games for ambassadors ?

    4th of November?
    Knowing Nintendo, they mean
    40th of November.

    They're really keen on pushing back dates so far into the future that they're impossible.

    What I wanna know is if DLC will be supported will we get occasional updates to animal crossing? New furniture would be nice even if they went about it in the way the Sims does by releasing it in packs

    I've been getting mixed messages when the update will come, but according to this video, Reggie sez the update is coming near the END of this month (at one minute and 35 secs)

    Why do you say that? This undate is really adding a lot of stuff.

    Guessing at the end of the month.

    Just to clear up the air here were not getting messaging in this update (thats resevered for a december Eshop update)


    You are aware that this may just be the groundwork for a DLC system right? Along with that we could possibly be talking about a method of themeing or skinning for the menu (very unlikely but since they are talking about add-on content...)

    skinning is highly unlikely, unless a) Nintendo decides to waste time on it, and b) they're certain that it's unexploitable.

    Yeah, I highly doubt Nintendo would allow skinning. When you think about it, what system, ever, in the history of history, has allowed skinning? (Unsure if PS3/PSP do)

    I'm looking forward to the update. I don't think I'll use the video recording that much, but it's awesome to have. I think I'm going to make a 3D guitar cover when it's released.

    More importantly, more Streetpass stuff! I beat Find Mii twice, completed all the puzzles, bought all the AR stuff, bought all the weapons in RE:Merc, and maxed out my coins at 300. I'm dying for more content.

    I'm looking forward to the "Join Game" button too when Super Mario 3D Land comes out too.
