The latest firmware update for the 3DS is now out and it actually does more than improve “system stability.”
Once updated, users will notice they now have the ability to use the eShop’s “Download Later” option without first having to close the app. In addition to that, they will also be able to use the Save Data Transfer Tool to move save data from a retail version of a game to a downloadable version of the same game.
Full update notes are posted after the break.

Nintendo eShop improvements*
- Users will no longer need to close the Nintendo eShop application to ensure the “Download Later” feature works while the Nintendo 3DS is in Sleep Mode.
- Other improvements to usability have been made, including the ability to download software update data in the background.
