New 3DS Update Makes It Easier To Customize Your Home Menu

about X hours ago from

Nintendo has released the latest system update for its 3DS handhelds. The new version, which has the catchy name 9.6.0-24U, makes it easier for users to customize and manage their home-menu layouts.

If you're the type of 3DS user who enjoys fiddling around with the way your home menu is organized and how it looks, this one's for you. After installing the update, you can save and load up to eight configurations. Finding new themes is a bit easier now, too, with additional options popping up under the "view more" menu on the theme store. There, themes are filtered according to characters and games, such as Mario, Kirby, and The Legend of Zelda, as well as the option to just view it all.

System update  9.6.0-24U also adds "improvements to system stability and usability," and lays the foundation for Amiibo support for the 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS in advance of an upcoming peripheral.

Civil War Returning To Marvel Comics In July

Civil War Returning To Marvel Comics In July

Captain America and Iron Man were at odds with one another in 2006's Civil War, and even after death, these two are right back at it – dividing super heroes and the nation over several pressing issues of the day. The new Civil War story launches in July and is a part of Marvel's universe-wide Secret Wars event.

In an interview with Marvel, writer Charles Soule says "The story is located in a nation on the Battleworld called the Warzone. That spot is pretty isolated from the rest of Battleworld, and there are story reasons for that, which you’ll see. It was important to me to write a story that could work either as an independent book—whether you’re reading Secret Wars or not, or even if you've never read the original Civil War—or as part of the larger story. That was a tricky thing to pull off, but I think it works."

Battleworld is a confusing new world where many of Marvel's continuities are amalgamating. You can get the lay of the land here. And not to spoil too much about this story, but Marvel's solicitation for the first issue of Civil War hints at this divide having something to do with President Stark's administration.
