Some 3DS games might run a bit faster now
You might have noticed fewer framerate issues and perhaps improved loading times for 3DS apps like Mii Plaza since the handheld’s recent 5.1.0-11 update. Some are claiming, though, that previously released games also appear to be running smoother with the new firmware.
I and many others have been skeptical about those claims, but reports continue to come in about the performance enhancements, and NeoGAF’s Mr Swine even posted a video demonstrating the improved framerate in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D:
People are also claiming to experience improved loading times and framerate for titles like Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate, Bit.Trip Saga, Nano Assault Ex, and a number of other games.
Pretty awesome! If it’s all true, why haven’t we heard anything from Nintendo about this?
