I was hoping for more features and customization of the home screen. The Facebook suggestions might be nice. Thatโ€™s about all I really thought stuck out much.



I was really hoping the issue with the play time convinced Nintendo to give us a proper activity log like the 3DS has. And like everyone else I wanted folders and themes.

Still, I am glad they fixed the bug and the Facebook feature is nice.

Also WAHHHH! I wanted Xenoblade icons.
