The Nintendo 3DS is a few years old now, but still seems to be evolving everyday. As of today in fact, a new update has launched for Australia, allowing users to finally add a theme to their HOME menu through a theme shop.
As you would expect, these new themes do cost a small penny, but add music, images, and decorations for those bland folders – features characters from The Legend of Zelda, Mario, and more.
Here is some more information about the update from Ninty themselves:
As part of today’s system update, a new Theme Shop has been added to the HOME Menu that unveils themes for Nintendo 3DS. Themes allow Nintendo 3DS and 2DS owners to personalise their systems by changing the menu background, icons and folders, and music and sound effects.
In addition to five simple colour themes provided with the update, a launch line-up of other themes are available for purchase now from the all-new Theme Shop*. These include eye-catching designs for the likes of Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi, while for Zelda fans a design showing the parallel worlds of Hyrule and Lorule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds also features**. As a heads-up for budding town mayors in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, designs paying tribute to that game are set to release at the end of October as part of a weekly updated line-up.
* Wireless broadband Internet access required.
**Completely Mario, Completely Luigi, Completely Peach, Completely Yoshi and Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds: Two Worlds are priced at AU$2.60/NZ$3.40 each.
There isn’t a word on when these updates will hit the U.S., but I would imagine we will see them hit very soon. For now, you Aussies can download away.
