Nintendo 3DS Gets Its First Update in Almost a Year

Could this be the 3DS' final update?

Even though Nintendo halted production of the 3DS in September, the company yesterday released a new software update for the now-discontinued handheld.

As expected, version 11.14.0-46U doesn’t bring any headline-making features to the table. Instead, it serves to further overall system stability and make “other minor adjustments” to “enhance the user experience.”

This is the 3DS’ first update since December 2019, which resolved an issue with StreetPass. Whether it’s the last one the 3DS will receive is a different question, although we wouldn’t be surprised if it was.
