Japanese copies of Super Mario 3D Land offers a new 3DS firmware update v2.2.0-4. Recent reports have suggested that the update is mandatory and it will add additional anti-piracy protection designed to prohibit flashcarts being used. It’s also said to add a button in your Friend’s List that enables you to join a friend’s game in progress.
This is not the same 3DS update firmware as the one planned for release later this month. Super Mario 3D Land is released in Europe on 18th November.
