    Hi,
    i have an untouched 3DS XL with firmware 4.5

    I've ordered Bravely Default.
    Will it force to update my 3ds with new firmware? (blocking future Gateway usage?)

    I don't know if this has already been asked..

    Yes, it almost certainly will.

    Seems as though Bravely Default has just been dumped by CONTRAST. As soon as http://3ds.essh.co/ updates the list we will know exactly what firmware it comes with.

    Also note that the EUR/US versions will be based on an updated version of the game, so it won't come with the 4.1 like the original JPN release did.

    so the only way to play it without updating would be buying a gateway and running it from emunand

    or would firmware spoofing suffice

    if the game is built on sdk 5, then u will need latest OS via emunand, if it isnt, then firmware spoofing will work fine

    sdk is 4...
    so firmware spoofing will be enough?

    could i also run the backup with the same method with gateway?

    Naw, with the latest GW firmware I can run it on 4.5 system NAND and play the new Zelda just fine.
