New Update Adds System Themes to 3DS

Ever wish that your 3DS was a bit fancier looking? Well now that oddly specific wish can become a reality with the latest update to the 3DS internal system. With this update, Nintendo has added a Themes button to the home page that allows gamers to change the overall look and feel of their DS with a variety of options from the Nintendo eShop. The update itself comes with five different colored themes to choose from, while gamers looking for something a bit more flashy can download themes featuring Nintendo characters, including Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi, and a theme designed around the dualistic realms of Hyrule and Lorule from the Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.


In addition, themes based around the Animal Crossing series will also launch at the end of the month, giving players even more choices when it comes to personalizing their 3DS. This has been a good year for the 3DS, with the launch of Pokemon X and Y last October, to the recent release of the long awaited Super Smash Bros. For 3DS, the future looks bright for the little handheld.

Do any of you guys plan to spice up your 3DS with a theme or two? Tell us in the comments or on Twitter @APGNation!

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
