    New to the scene. I have the latest firmware on my 3DS XL. Is Sky3DS my only option? What's a trust-worthy US site to buy from? Thanks!

    Sky3DS has been almost 100% patched by Nintendo, from what I've been hearing. But there's always the Supercard DSTwo Plus, which is a 4-in-1 card which plays 3DS, DS, GBA, and NES games all in one card.

    Never heard of the Supercard DSTwo Plus 'til now, thanks for the info. I looked at their official site but it doesn't have a list of re-sellers. Do you have any that you recommend? I'm being cautious because I previously tried to buy a flashcard from a site, and found out days later that it was a scam site (despite being a top result on Google).

    Hmm... I've always got my flashcards from Ebay and Amazon, but since these are relatively new, they'll be quite hard to find on there!

    Well, for 3DS games, it just emulates the Gateway (no 9.3+), so since OP is on 10.1 she will just be able do play DS, GBA and SNES games.

    Yeah, I only just noticed that. Oh well... (But I thought it had it's own processors built-in for the 3DS games?)

    Well, with new antipiracy checks in newer games and what-not, it'll just end up being rendered useless. (I'm sure Sky3DS will find the workaround like Gateway did.)

    Basically any recent game, starting from Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer to the present 3DS games, won't work through Sky3DS.
