Nintendo has released a system update for Nintendo 3DS that will allow console owners to customise the Home screen, icons and backgrounds.
As part of this 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.
