    I'm sorry. I admit to being a noob in the scene (played around with my Sky3ds but zero experience with Gateway).

    I purchased a JPN region New 3ds LL in order to lock myself into a compatible software for Gateway. My question though is what happens in the event I need an update from the Nintendo e-shop for one of my games to go online? I'm in the USA but the 3ds can only connect to the Japanese e-shop which presumably doesn't have updates for US region titles.

    Some quick searches on the forum and on google were not fruitful. Thanks for any input you can offer.

    :grog: Cheers :grog:

    You can install updates using gateway in the form of .cia's i believe.

    Are you suggesting there is a way to connect to the US e-shop with a Japanese 3ds with emunand? As for the .cia's, I don't know much about them. I'll do some reading. Thanks for the input!

    I dont think there is a way to connect to a different regions eshop. But you can install update .cias with devmenu.
