    Hey guys,

    I haven't been really paying attention to this whole new flashcard things and what not. Last one I had was the original R4 for the DSLite. So I was wondering, how is this new R4 3DS I see floating around the internet? Is it reliable? Also, does it make things region free? Aka, I can download ROMs from Japan and still run the game on the 3DS?

    It can only play DS games. It's basically your current R4 except it works on the 3DS.

    Nothing runs 3DS games.

    DS games are region-free to begin with and work on any DS/Lite/DSi/DSiXL/3DS system.
