New firmware update for 3DS available now, adds folders

A new firmware update has been released by Nintendo for their 3DS handheld. Unfortunately for those expecting something a bit more substantial in terms of added features, the only thing this update brings forth is folder support.

Now you’ll be able to throw all of your downloaded applications (up to 60 of them) in different folders, a great way to organize and keep track of your content. While at first this may seem like a minor upgrade, it really will make your life easier. After all, between Virtual Consoles games, eShop original titles, game demos, and other content, it’s easy to forget just what you have downloaded on your homescreen — I downloaded Pushmo weeks ago and still haven’t played it because I forgot it existed.

The new software update is available now to download.
