3DS update may cause bug in game

The first 3DS system update which is available today may cause a freezing bug in Ridge Racer 3D requiring a system restart, Nintendo Japan announced. The freeze occurs on the ‘Race select’ or ‘Machine select’ screens. A seperate firmware update will be released sometime in mid-June to correct the problem.

The update sees the grand opening of the 3DS estore. To mark this occasion Nintendo are giving away a free game for a limited time. Until July 7th users can download the 3D version of the classic NES game Excitebike. The update also adds an internet browser.

In other news, the 3DS’s little brother yesterday saw a nice price drop, bringing the DS Lite down to a tempting $99 retail.
