  Nintendo News: System Update Brings Enhancements to Nintendo 3DS

REDMOND, Wash. -- March 26, 2013

Nintendo has released a downloadable update for Nintendo 3DS that will add new
functionality to the hand-held system. Items featured in the update include:

  *A tool that allows Nintendo 3DS users to transfer save data from the
    packaged version of a game to the downloadable version. Players that
    originally purchased a physical version of a game will be able to pick up
    right where they left off with their save data if they decide to purchase
    the digital version of the same game. Save data that is transferred to a
    digital game cannot be moved back to the physical version.
  *An improvement to the feature that downloads items in the background when
    the Nintendo 3DS system is in Sleep Mode. Items will now download when the
    Nintendo eShop is running. Users can simply close the system cover to
    activate the “Download Later” feature and the game or application will
    begin to download.
