    Not sure if my question is clear but... from what I read most New 3ds are on 9.0 - 9.9

    Is is possible that it's on the 11.4 firmware brand new ?

    I wanted to buy one for a while but since the New 2ds xl coming july 28th is going to be on 11.4, I will pass on this one.

    Sorry for my poor English :)

    edit: I forgot "The" highest firmware in the title.

    I've seen Galaxy-style N3DS XL's come on 11.4.0, but not the standard black one. The burgundy one will most definitely me on 10.3.0 or lower because, afaik, it's not longer made.

    I created this thread last week with the same question: https://gbatemp.net/threads/new-3ds-xl-firmware-in-stores-now.475821/

    I ended buying a black one last thursday and it was on 11.3
    someone else in my thread reported getting a galaxy on 11.3 as well.

    I bought one brand new and got 11.2.0-35U so i followed the guide at 3ds.guide and it worked perfect.

    I got a "New Black" New 3DS XL about 2 weeks ago and it literally has FW v11.2.
