    So I've bought 3ds like 3 months ago with acekard and i'm using it well, but I recently watched few videos on youtube that you can get free 3ds games on Nintendo eShop. I tried to open it but it says I need my 3ds to be updated and I wanted to ask if i can update my 3ds and acekard would work at the same time? Or i need to choose between eShop and acekard? I hope you understand..

    What kinds of "free games" are these?

    And no. If you update your 3DS, you won't be able to use your Acekard2i. So it's up to you. Get eShop games or have flashcard access.

    If you buy a game and it contains the latest software update for the 3DS, you will be forced to update and your Acekard won't work on your 3DS anymore. You also can't use the eShop without updating your 3DS.

    Does Street Fighter IV contains the latest update then?

    Street Fighter was released long enough ago that I wouldn't think so.

    The update of your 3DS means your acekard will die, otherwise you get another flashcad which support the latest 3DS.
