The 3DS firmware update adding the eShop
, DSiWare transfer, web browser, and other features, was originally scheduled to be released in "late May." A note
on Nintendo of Japan's website reveals that it's going to be released so
late in May that it'll actually be June by the time it arrives.
June 7 is now the official date for the firmware update, in Japan at least. That happens to coincide with Nintendo's E3 presentation
, so we're now expecting that to be the worldwide release date, so Nintendo can make a dramatic reveal on stage. We're checking with Nintendo, in any case.
The update will come to North America "the evening of June 6 Pacific time," according to Nintendo's website
. Thanks to Donald
for spotting that.
