    Hello all,

    I have two 3DSs: one European and one Japanese. The Japanese one is the Animal Crossing edition.

    I have been playing Japanese Animal Crossing for several months now, and just got Animal Crossing on my other European 3DS.

    I have not enabled an internet connection on my Japanese 3DS, as I want to keep a console on old firmware (in case a future firmware blocks flashcarts/hacks, etc).

    My European 3DS has internet enabled.

    Now, I tried to play Animal Crossing "local multiplayer" between the two consoles. I wanted my European console to visit my older Japanese town to get fruit/tools/money, etc. The problem is I couldn't connect the two consoles. I tried connecting via the "local" play option, but I couldn't connect the two consoles.

    Do I need a working internet connection on both consoles?
    Is that the problem?
    Does anyone have any ideas?


    Thanks

    Not a problem, I fixed it.

    I needed to update my Japanese Animal Crossing software to v1.1, (via eShop), and now local play between the two works.
