3D System Update Addresses Ridge Racer Issues

No more crashes

Last week's long anticipated 3DS eShop update had its issues, causing crashes in Ridge Racer 3D. Nintendo assured customers a patch would be made available before the end of June, and lo and behold it's now available.

To grab the update, simply pop open your machine and head over to System Settings, Other Settings and System Update. Alternatively, entering the eShop will prompt you to run the update.

Here's what Nintendo has added to the 3DS with this update:

June 15, 2011
Nintendo 3DS Menu 2.1.0-3U

If you currently have update version 2.0.0-2U, this update provides:

Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments to enhance user experience
A correction for the screen freeze symptom experienced in the Ridge Racer 3D game
You can receive automatic updates when a wireless internet connection is available. When the download is complete, you will receive a dialog on the HOME Menu detailing the steps to install the update
If you have not completed the update released on June 6, version 2.0.0-2U, this update will add the following new features:

Nintendo eShop
Internet Browser
Transfer functionality to move DSiWare™ from Nintendo DSi™/Nintendo DSi XL™ systems to the Nintendo 3DS™ system
Automatic system updates
Improved stability and performance of the overall system

We're expecting to find out later today what new products will be added to the 3DS eShop, so check back later for the Nintendo Download for Europe and North America.

Thanks to Thomas Spargo for sending this in.
