Hello! This is my first post, so I hope I am in the right place. I am getting ready to follow Plailect's guide and set up Luma3DS for myself and two family members. (Please ignore that the title says Aura lol)

Luma3DS sounds too good to be true! :) My current plan is to install on my old 3ds and keep my new 3ds untouched. Should I just go ahead with the new 3ds instead? (and sell the old one)?

I understand multiplayer works just fine using cia's. Are there no downsides? Does it function 100% like a regular system? Perhaps there is a lot of maintenance involved?

Thank you for your help!

@DavidRO99 lol oopse yeah, no idea why I thought it was Aura. Thanks for the correction and info! :)

@zezzo Thanks I did see the warnings about bricking during install.

Does it require upkeep as official firmware is released? Or as new games come out?

This might be a question that has no answer but is there a chance that at some point we wont be able to play a new game because of some code that nintendo implemented? @[email protected]

There are a lot more benefits to installing it on a New 3ds. You can stream game footage to your PC, you can play Snes injects, and you can play any 3ds game using the New 3ds' CPU.
If you're just installing Luma, it can take over 30 seconds to boot into, but if you install Arm9LoaderHax, it will function like a normal system and you will be protected from bricks.

You will always be able to play new games since cia's are just eshop games dumped and uploaded

Yep as said before!
-GO with the New3DS
-no downsides except benefit. As long as you don't mess up during the process of course!

What do you mean by upkeep? If I'm thinking what you are thinking then no.

-You will not ever not be able to play a game. If anything ever happened like that there will be patches and work arounds!

Thanks everyone!! :) I know they are silly questions but I feel at ease now. I'll get started with my n3ds then! (and work hard to avoid those user error caused bricks :P )
