3D video capture, new StreetPass puzzles, and a second Find Mii challenge are to feature in a Nintendo 3DS update scheduled for the end of November. The announcements were made as part of the pre-recorded Nintendo Direct video made available on October 21.
“This November, a new system update for the portable Nintendo 3DS system will enable owners to capture 3D video footage,” Nintendo said in a statement. “People will be able to record and view moments from birthday parties, soccer games and holiday events, or create their own original 3D productions and show them to others in 3D, all without the need for special glasses.”
Also featuring were a few new tidbits on the 3DS title Mario Kart 7, due December 1 in Japan, December 2 in Europe and December 4 in North America. There’ll be room for up to 8 players to race online or, alternatively, drivers can swap ghost laps for an 8-player offline mode.
