    i'm looking into getting a 3ds that can support a 3ds. willing to purchase a new special edition which was why i'm wondering what systems I can get that come with supported firmware. if I'm not mistaken, it works with 9.0 so anything below the zelda & monster hunter special editions should work with it right?

    Any 3ds below firmware 9.2 are compatible.

    Wath I mean here, is, that if a special edition is on 9.2 or lower, it's perfectly fine.

    On the other hand, Gateway officially announced that 10.3 support is coming soon, so theorically, any current 3ds are gonna be compatible.

    I think your 3ds can support a 3ds...

    Special edition systems are just a cool paint job. They don't have anything different internally. Software, they just have a game installed.

    Yea I didn't think about that. They tend to have the minimum firmware the game needs.

    Actually, They include whatever firmware was the latest at the time of manufacture.
    Very few MH4 N3DS's and MM N3DS's have below 9.2.0

    If you do manage to find one, you can check what version it is by comparing the serial number to this chart:

    In Aus, 100% of MH4U consoles have 9.0 (only one batch released), and about 20% of MM consoles have 9.0 (there were several batches released from February - July from memory).
