3DS update 'improves system stability'

Nintendo warns against using unauthorised devices and software

Nintendo has released a new system update for 3DS in Europe and the US.


The company says version 4.3.0-10U introduces "further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience."

Nintendo also warns: "After the Nintendo 3DS system is updated, any existing or future unauthorized technical modification of the hardware or software of your Nintendo 3DS system, or the use of an unauthorized device in connection with your system, may render the system permanently unplayable."

Earlier today Nintendo reported a £143 million loss for the three months ended June 30, but the battling platform holder said it's encouraged by 3DS sales. 1.86 million 3DS units were sold during the quarter, up 162 percent compared to the same period last year.
