With the new system update allowing Folders and game patches and DLC, I wondered what other amazing things can come to the 3DS in form of a system update.
I made a list of things that id love to see on the 3DS on future updates.

1. Ability to make an online gamer tag or user name
2. Add a friend simply by imputing their user name and have it be on way friend request not two way
3. Make DSi games and VC games full screen
4. Messaging friends through a simple messenger instead of SwapNote
5. Video Chat with other 3DS users.

That's just a short list of amazing things that can be possible with a 3DS system update.
So what awesome things you'd like to see on a system update?

Sales on eshop as well as the option to allow developers to lower the general prices of their games after a certain amount of time.

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain

I think a Nintendo Network app that works as a hub for all things NIntendo, and also integrates Club Nintendo into it would be very useful. I also think that there needs to be gamertags instead of friendcodes.

1) Online friend chat feature or local one (ie. Pictochat)
2) GB VC games having colour options (GBC support).
3) VC games having local multiplayer where applicable.
4) Being able to change amount of empty menu spaces on the home menu.
5) eShop software discounts/sales.
6) More resolution options for GBA/DSiWare games.
7) Gifting feature via the eShop.

  • Instant messaging + Voice/Video chat
  • Nintendo Network App
  • a GOOD video platform, where you can upload and watch videos about whatever subject you want.
  • Sales on the eShop
  • Listening to music, even if the 3DS Sound app isn't active. (Example: Browsing on the web)

  • Add SwapNote to the multitask bar for easy access when you're playing a game and update the SwapNote app itself to allow for instant messaging as well. (Either that or add instant messaging on the Friends List app)
  • Get rid of FriendCodes and use usernames instead.
  • Sales on the éShop.
  • Customization in the home-menu. (Custom backgrounds or just the ability to download themes for the menu in the éShop)
  • The ability to choose a game inside of a map to represent that map instead of just a letter.
  • StreetPass Quest 3
  • Adding more AR games to the AR card app using the "?" card.
  • A erase button for the icons on the menu, it's annoying having to go in to the options app all the time to get rid of something.

Can't think of anything else right now.

Looking forward to: ZeldaU & Hyrule Warriors

that would be extra convenient, you could redeem the monthly club nintendo awards on your 3DS

A YouTube app, with the ability to view certain videos in 3D.

Upgrade the internet browser to be better.

A Club Nintendo app.

Don't replace SwapNote, but add a regular messaging sytem to it, for those who want it.

  • Nintendo busting out a 'Touch Screen' Monochrome Green Contrast Slider so we get the proper detail/shading without the color drowning/detail killing effect as it dishes out now.
  • Touch screen 'Game Gear-like' Gameboy/GBC In-Game options, to switch from 1:1 Pixel/GB mode or the Larger Screen instead of having to do a button combination before you boot the game up. Annoying! :p
  • Being able to turn off/on the Monochrome Green Ghosting effect
  • Different GBC 1:1 player modes, including Banana Yellow, Berry Red and Lime Green, instead of the awesomeness that is just Purple. B-)
  • While 3D Classics have great sounding/loud volume when using headphones, sadly it's not the case with 3DS retail games.....It's actually dissapointing really. Game Gear VC titles sound even quiter. If Nintendo created some sort of firmware update and gave us a Headphone Volume Adjuster slider for retail 3DS releases I'd be more than happy! Louder vilume boosts up the immersion factor and makes the experience far more dynamic dudes & dudettes!
    Resident Evil: Revelation 'jump scares' practically had zero effect on me since the volume wasn't even loud enough, which also knocked down the atmosphere and immersion factor.

Folder update 2.0:

  • The ability to change color of the folders.
  • More symbols, etc. to customize your folders.
  • Building off the last request, maybe we could put various Nintendo characters heads for the folder's symbol. Mario, Luigi, Link, DK heads etc. Maybe some people would put all the Mario games in one folder, making this useful.

Aside from expanding the folder customization, we should have usernames and avatars. Usernames could be filtered to avoid any thing vulgar or R rated. As for avatars, have a default selection, ranging from Mario characters to Pokemon.

Yah a deeper folder customization would be amazing, considering that the current folders like kinda plain with just one letter on them,
but i also like what @19Robb92 said, the home theme like menus would be awesome, like special themes like 8-bit zelda or retro mario themese or even
a cool Resident Evil Revelations one as well. maybe the top can be a photo slide show like in the DSi.

I like the idea of video calls and youtube support. I also really want to see multiplayer support for VC games (I don't think that would need a firmware update though)......... other than that I don't like any of these ideas. :)

Personally I'd like to see more online features like maybe a little bit more info on your friends list. Maybe being able to look through what games your friends have and send them a message from the friends list saying something like "wanna play some Mario Kart at 7PM on Friday" with automagic timezone fixing and such. That'd be cool. Other than that just keep doing performance improvements.

For redeeming games on the service, you dunce! :P

It seems that eShop sales is a big thing we want. Hopefully, we can have it sooner than later.

What I want to say has already been said.

Games I'm getting: None

Favorite Games: Super Metroid (SNES) / Mother 2 (Super Famicom) / Pokémon LeafGreen (GBA) / RuneScape (PC)
Playing: Pokémon X / Y (3DS) / Super Mario 3D World (Wii U)

Nothing interesting happens.

1. Gamer tag + no exchanging names, just send a friend request
2. Skype and or YouTube App
3. Browser update
4. Messaging System outside of swapnote(For quicker use)
5.eShop Sales
6. Themes; Backgrouds for the menu which you can download from the eShop
7. Screen Capture feature
8. Achievements/Trophies. Gives me a greater incentive to go back and replay my games.
9. Might be a MK specific update but ability to talk to people in MK7 while playing
10. Nintendo Network App, stores your Gamertag, Club Nintendo, and statistics.

Just about any of those would make my day.
