    Well, I was thinking of getting Harvest Moon: A New Beginning for my new 3DS XL, but seeing as how it came out from before Paper Mario (literally within the same week I believe), I was wondering if it also required an updated 3DS to play?

    I'll probably be getting a DSTWO fairly soon, but until then I was hoping I wouldn't need to patch this thing.

    Thanks in advance for the info :).


    By the way, somewhat off-topic here, but have any of you tried the first 3DS HM (The Tale of Two Towns), by chance? I was thinking of maybe getting it first, but I've heard the new one is far better.

    The other HM you mentioned has a DS version, and since you don't want to upgrade your firmware, i'm sure you would be able to "try it".

    The new one is far better, and no, it does not require an update.

    I dunno, Tale of Two Towns was enjoyable to me. On the other hand, my favorite to date was Welcome to the Wind's Bazaar, so yeah...

    Thanks for the update, I picked up a copy earlier :)

    Nah, I'm sure they only made about 30+ HM games just to spite people heh.
