    Hello all,


    Can anyone with a new European (or even US version) Animal Crossing edition 3DS XL console please tell me what firmware it ships with?


    Thanks

    Yea since Animal Crossing came out after the latest update.. I don't think it would be play-able on a lower firmware due to ask of the update.

    I bought the Animal Crossing Bundle this week (europe) and it's the latest: 5.1.0.11E. I use R4 for it, works great.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Does the game actually force you to update to the latest version firmware on older version firmware consoles? That's harsh.

    You have insufficient posts to view location.
    At least it doesn't phone home daily like the xbox one.

    I don't know, but the newest update 6.0.0.12 came after the release. With which firmware do you want to play it?

    I just bought the AC 3DSXL myself. First 3DS. I'm trying to find a thread I read a few days ago now talking about firmware updates. I can't remember if it was saying the order I needed to update the firmware, implying I would miss out on features if I went straight to the latest firmware or otherwise, when version each new feature had. Can someone shed some light for me please? I'll edit when I have found my answer.

    ERROR!
    Sometimes games actually need the update to even work in the first place, it's why download play enabled games also requires both systems to be updated as a just in case precaution.
    But yeah even if it's not a required update it will force you to update before playing the game.
