You’ll have to purchase 3DS menu themes ⊟
Maybe you assumed this, but I just ran across this bit in yesterday’s 3DS news press release: “Themes will be available for purchase from a Theme Shop that will be added to the Home menu.”
So it’s a separate shop with a separate icon? Weird. But the whole thing actually seems smart, I must grudgingly admit. It’s kind of a lot of work to make custom icons and music for each theme, so it wouldn’t make sense to make it free; and impulse-buy things like this will probably be a tempting use of leftover eShop funds.
Interestingly, for each of the custom faceplates Nintendo showed for the standard-sized 3DS yesterday, there seemed to be a matching Home menu theme. I wonder if the faceplates come with themes?
