Since 3DS Home Menu Themes went live in October, the Theme Shop has received an onslaught of new content each week. With an already vast range of offerings, 3DS owners are slowly being overwhelmed with what theme to buy and use.

Nintendo’s latest system update for the 3DS – Version 9.3.0-21 – not only solves this problem, but also encourages 3DS owners to purchase even more themes. The new shuffle feature allows users to 'favourite' their top ten themes and alternate / shuffle between them by simply turning their 3DS on, or activating Sleep Mode.

In addition to this nifty Theme Shop feature, 3DS users can now also take a photo of the HOME Menu including both the upper and lower screen. And as always, Nintendo has finished the latest update with some sweet stability, with minor adjustments made to "enhance the user experience".

The official changelog is below:

  • A Shuffle Favorites feature has been added under Change Theme in HOME Menu Settings. Users can choose multiple themes and have their theme change when the system is left in Sleep Mode from the HOME Menu or turned on after being off
  • Available software updates can now be downloaded from the HOME Menu
  • Users can now capture screenshots with both the upper and lower screens included
  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

Let us know what you think of the latest 3DS system update, and if you believe the new shuffle feature will encourage you to buy even more themes.
