  1. Kefka is an ugly as clows who suck dick and Sephiroth is da best

    So pretty much its a minor update that shouldn’t even need to have a whole topic over it.

    1. Sephiroth was so fuckin predictable lil moms boy. Kefka killed his Emperor,Destroyed world enjoyed doing all that stuff and managed to become god. Sephiroth didnt do nothing else than whined about his mom and sucked energy so the only one who sucks is sephiroth the lamest FF villain ever.

      1. It makes me curious. The manual (viewed from the 3DS menu) doesnt even mention expressions, yet the update page makes note of them.

    1. Found it. Change your greeting. Afterwards it will allow you to select one of 6 expressions for your mii to use when you streetpass and it greets others in another’s plaza.

  2. Wow, all 4 new games are LAME!!!! Sorry Nintendo, saving my eShop credit for SMT IV DLC and Dual Destinies (which BTW still needs a release date please).

  3. I’m gonna wait, this update is sure to screw something up. If I don’t hear any issues of my 3DS freezing or not working then I’ll do it.

    1. I doubt it. articles I’ve read say that Japan and Europe got these with 6.0, and on Nintendo’s system update support page it has:
      •The following, which were included within previous system updates, are not included with system menu versions 6.0.0-0U through 6.0.0-4U:
      ◦New features for the Nintendo 3DS Camera
      ◦Content for StreetPass Mii Plaza
      ◦System Transfer between two Nintendo 3DS systems

      Not to mention that some screenshots i saw of the over seas version were different for the minigame shopping (they had some kind of “Shop” menu)

      Im guessing some features were causing problems and were removed from the update till they were fixed, explaining us getting the new plaza with 6.1 (my guess is the camera and system transfer features are mentioned since the 3DS installs all updates at once, instead of installing one update after another manually, so those who’ve yet to update to the version with those features did not get them with 6.0, but instead with 6.1)

  4. Yeeeaaah, no. After bad update from nintendo in the Pal Region, i rather wait till its confirmed that this one doesnt have an issues.

  7. Anyone know what the extra empty tile on the touch screen is for? I count 8 tile spaces, 4 taken by software (Plaza, Find Mii, Puzzle Swap, Monster manor {which i bought}), and 4 empty spaces, but only /3/ more minigames ive yet to buy.

    Some kind of hidden feature one has to find? Perhaps the mentioned “expressions?”
