The 3DS firmware has been updated to version 11.16.0-48U

No, your eyes are not deceiving you here either. Around the same time tonight that Nintendo released an update for the Wii U‘s firmware, Nintendo decided to do the exact same thing with the 3DS. Just like the Wii U, the 3DS has become nothing more than a memory. And also like the Wii U, Nintendo has still been releasing rare and random updates for the 3DS firmware.

If you still use a 3DS, and you still want to download updates for it, this update will change the version number of the firmware to 11.16.0-48U. The official patch notes are exactly like tonight’s Wii U firmware update. The only thing Nintendo says is that “further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience”.

  1. I haven’t played my switch since a June vacation. I’m like 50 hours into Pokemon Crystal on 3ds. It can fit in a smaller bag than switch can and is 6 oz lighter, good for hikes, bike rides or whatever.

  2. As people collect gaming consoles such as the Sony PSP, Vita etc. the 3DS should be a modern retro collectible console. For me it is ❤️

    1. I have 3 currently: The launch 3DS, the XL, and the N3DSXL. They all have some wear but I don’t mind because I’m never going to sell them, I use all three regularly <3

      1. If they had just added GBA games (or at least the ambassador games) and DS games (instead of Wii U) to the 3DS… might have been the perfect platform.

  3. I have 3 3DS systems and it saddens me that in just a few days I’ll no longer be able to purchase anything digital legitimately, we’ll all be forced onto the seven seas
