Nintendo to Clean Up the Home Screen Clutter with Upcoming 3DS Update
"Get ready to update your Nintendo *3DS on 4/25! This system Update will let you organize your Home Menu," @NintendoAmerica announced via Twitter.
If you happen to speak or otherwise understand Japanese, you can hear all about it from Nintendo President Satoru Iwata in a Nintendo Direct conference livestream (click here). Otherwise, Andriasang.com posted a translated transcript in which it's revealed that the update will introduce folders capable of storing up to 60 items each. The first character of the name will be shown in the folder's icon.
In addition, the upcoming firmware update will add support for game updates and patches, the first of which will be Mario Kart 7. It's unclear when that one will be rolled out, though Mr. Iwata did say it will address some shortcut issues with the game.
