    Stuff like NitroStream, but for the O3ds. Or is it just completely impossible/not worth anybody's time to make?

    nope, it wouldnt work period. Not only is the n3ds more powerful, but it has advanced networking hardware.

    The only other option is to install a capture card, or buy one already modified for capture.

    The prices are astronomical though.

    You're looking $250 and install it yourself, or $500 for a premodded 3DS (and these are just the old3DS prices!)

    Yes but the captures from the new 3ds is going to have some lag still so it's still worth getting a capture card

    There are even frame drops in the the new 3DS despite the newer and more powerful hardware and it's likely going to stay that way, it's simply a wireless latency issue not to mention you are capturing and streaming directly at the same time which can be very taxing to the hardware. Doing so on the old 3DS will simply slow the entire system to an unbearable crawl, certainly not a feasible way to stream or capture any footage.

    Also this is what Nintendo own capture card looks like, though not really a "capture card" more like a development hardware kit with screen capturing features:



    Cost around a nice whopping $3000+ (not much of a surprise though since these are licensed dev kits).
