3DS update to add 3D video recording

November firmware release detailed.

Nintendo will bolster the 3DS' capabilities in November by adding 3D video recording.

Currently the system can only take static pictures in 3D.

The feature will be added in a forthcoming firmware upgrade which will also include refinements to the Mii Plaza and eShop.

Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata announced the update at the company's pre-TGS gathering last night.

Iwata hinted that Plaza upgrades would include new SpotPass activities for those who'd already completed the existing Puzzle Swap and StreetPass Quest minigames.
