The much-anticipated 3DS system update has suffered a minor delay, and will now be available before 8th December.

The update — previously thought to be available on 30th November — is now in the final stages of testing and will see launch within the next ten days.

Once available, the update adds 3D video recording, the 3DS system transfer ability and new games for the StreetPass Mii Plaza.

Update: It's confirmed this delay affects users in Japan, North America and Europe.
