3DS firmware 7-2-0-17

In a never-ending quest to offer stability and usability to 3DS gamers, Nintendo recently released a system update lovingly named 7-2-0-17 into the wild.

Here's what the update offers:

Version 7.2.0-17 available via wireless Internet connection includes the following improvements:

Added new Parental Control features:

  • Parents can now register an e-mail address within Parental Controls
  • Parents that have registered an e-mail can send themselves instructions on unlocking Parental Controls if they have forgotten their Parental Controls PIN

Improved system stability and usability:

  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

To update your 3DS, simply go to "System Settings" -> "Other Settings" then keep going right until you see the "System Update" option.

Parents will no doubt welcome the option to register an email address in case they absent-mindedly forget the chosen PIN. Aside from this we just have more mysterious improvements.
