Super Mario 3D Land also has firmware update

News 3DS Nintendo

If you pick up Super Mario Land for your 3DS, then you will also be getting a firmware update. This update adds some security to the system, as well as a “Join Game” option. Both the Japanese and USA copies of the game have been confirmed to have the update, although other copies of the game probably do too. Later this month, there will be another update to the firmware of the 3DS that will include video recording features, updated StreetPass games, DLC functionality, and other eShop improvements. It will be interesting to see if the online update will include the updates found in the Mario game.
