    “Pressing the L and R Buttons simultaneously will now start the Nintendo 3DS Camera from the HOME Menu”

    This is by far the best part of the update for me! Booting the camera up unexpectedly used to drive me mad!

    Can you take screenshots of 3DS games and post them to Miiverse?

    @5: Nintendo says:”Posts can include handwritten messages, and u can also attach screenshots from supported software.”

    Hopefully that means yes.

    Jupp, I already saw 3DS Screenshots in Miiverse with my own Eyes. On 3DS you can watch it in 2D or 3D.
