Yesterday we brought you the harrowing news that it could take upwards of three quarters of an hour to download the digital copy of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on your Nintendo 3DS console. That figure came courtesy of Siliconera, who tested the download using a review code and a US 3DS.
Compared to the kind of download times experienced on platform such as PSN, XBLA and iOS, that was pretty abysmal, triggering a tidal wave of concern from Nintendo devotees all over the globe.
However, more positive news has emerged. IGN has done a similar test — no doubt under strict monitoring and with an independent witness present to verify the results — and clocked a more encouraging time of 13 minutes. Panic over! Phew.
