Nintendo has showcased 47 new homepage themes for its 3DS handheld that fans can download individually for a small fee.

The downloadable themes give the 3DS a visual overhaul by adding new wallpapers and background images, as well as custom icons folders, music, and sound effects.

A gallery of the themes be found below, and features designs based on characters such as Mario, Link and Yoshi, as well as games such as Monster Hunter 4G and Animal Crossing. Also featured are more basic designs and wallpaper patterns.

Currently these operating system makeovers are only available in Japan, but Nintendo Europe recently mentioned an October release date for the west.

Prices start at 100 Yen, which equates to about $ 0.90 (£0.60), but do not sell for any more than 200 Yen.

Nintendo’s new themes are available for both the 3DS and 3DS XL, and will also be compatible with the New Nintendo 3DS–the latest handheld version from Nintendo, featuring customisable back plates, as well as a second analogue stick, and NFC technology.

Though set to ship this year in Japan, the New Nintendo 3DS US release date is currently set for some time in 2015. It will also be region locked.

The Windows 8 home menu…which might see some big changes.

Windows 9 has not been officially announced, although we expect Microsoft to reveal the next version of their Windows operating system during a widely rumored press event scheduled for tomorrow, September 30. But in the meantime, the president of Microsoft Indonesia has reportedly spilled early details on an upgrade program for current Window 8 users. According to Indonesian site Detik (via PCWorld), Andreas Diantoro confirmed that “Windows 9 will be a free upgrade for all Windows 8 users.”

His full quote, translated by the handy but not entirely perfect Google Translate was: “Easy, when the OS (Windows 9) was launched later, users who have been using Windows 8 just need to do the update via his device. It will be installed automatically.” He reportedly made this comment at the Hotel Mulia in Jakarta.

A US Microsoft representative said that they have nothing to share at this time. But we’ll keep you updated on the further details as they’re made available, as well as what this could mean for PC gaming. On a related note, Microsoft’s Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, talked about renewing the company’s focus on PC gaming earlier this year at E3.
