3DS firmware update next month - report

3D video recording, new StreetPass game.

A major 3DS firmware update goes live on 4th November, according to a new report.

The announcement was apparently made at a Nintendo Europe event in Munich earlier today, Tweeted by an attending freelance journalist and then picked up by Nintendo World Report.

The update reportedly brings with it 3D video recording, a new StreetPass game and improvements to the eShop.

We're chasing Nintendo for confirmation right now, but it seems like a reasonable bet. The platform holder has scheduled a webcast for this Friday to discuss the update and other impending 3DS activity.
