Firmware update 9.5.0-23U is live right now for Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS, and on the surface it appears to be just a routine patch. The description just reads “Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience,” but users have already discovered it also disables the “Regionthree” hack, which allows circumvention of Nintendo’s region-locking restrictions. As far as we know so far, no other features are added or disabled with this firmware update.
