Nintendo 3DS To Get Custom Themes For Home Menu


The Nintendo 3DS is getting custom themes, Nintendo of America announced today. Note that these are for the regular 3DS and 3DS XL models, and not just the “New” model revisions that were announced for Japan this morning.


Following a system update in October, the Nintendo 3DS Home menu will be capable of equipping different themes that change the menu background, icons, folders, music and sound effects.


Themes will be available for purchase from a “Theme Shop” that will be added to the Home menu. More details will be announced at a future date.
