    Heres the video proof they posted.

    It looks like a completely different way from gateways emunand.

    1) It works in 9.X
    2) First thing i noticed is it loads in the normal 3ds mode.
    3) You Click a button on the flashcart to cycle through games.
    4) Saving works

    FAQ ABOUT SKY 3DS

    Q: I have a new 3ds with the firmware 9.1.0-20J version. your new flashcard can work on this version or not?

    A: Yes, Sky3DS card can support the newest 3DS V9.1.0-20J version.

    Q: Does the sky3ds support all of the 3DS games? can this flashcart work on NEW 3ds?

    A: Yes, It can play all of 3DS games, and support the New 3DS console.

    Q: Can this flashcart play 3ds game online ? ex : pokemon and doing a wonder trade or battle with people online.

    A: Yes, Sky3DS card can play 3DS game online as a genuine gamepad did, can also save,load,edit etc....

    Q: Does it require special thing to do first before using SKY3DS?

    A: Don't need to do any special thing, just drag and drop the downloaded ROMs in MicroSD card by the Disktool we provided, and enjoy it.

    Q: Does the sky3ds have emunand? Also will there be a region unlock? So I can play games on my EU 3DS from Japan or US?

    A: No, don't need any emunand at all, it can support any 3DS system version even the newest V9.1.0-20J version. Because it's region locking like a real gamepad, you can't play US or JP's games on your EU 3DS console.

    It looks like it just emulates a real card. If it's real, they'll get a lot of users because of the 9.X firmware support, but since it's not exploit based, it won't be able to run homebrew, dump NAND, cheats, etc.

    If it works on OFW 9.X, of course it works in a completely different way.

    Yeah, no need to load a gateway/ emunand mode!
    Unless if closing the settings app is meant to lead Sky3ds mode or soemthing haha.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i removed\edited my previous comment, i thought the guy used the settings exploit like you do with 4.x cards

    it is just a card emulator for what is shown on the video...

    That's what everyone said about the Gateway too, remember? Also, for many people that would be enough as long as it works on the latest firmware.

    You can't run custom code with this.

    Means no HB, no eShop game, ...

    If that's true, doesn't that mean Nintendo won't be able to patch this?

    You'll never know. Maybe they'll update their card designs.

    Until SSSPwn! Was there ever any possibility of HB on gateway? Also im wondering what's stopping eShop games from working.

    And supposedly, this could work on the New 3DS. Damn, I feel bad since I just got my 3DS XL and my Gateway T.T

    eShop games are not properly signed (the ones people are using on GW right now).
    GW supports HB.

    Oh and AFAIK no region free.

    There was already homebrew on Gateway for quite some time but there's basically nothing of interest AFAIK.

    Hey! You can still use it to rip games haha.
    Don't feel bad I have two gateways.
    Was thinking ill buy a 4.5 3ds for my brother but just never bothered to buy one so i have a gateway just sitting here.
    Heres to hoping we get discout if gateway updates something.

    Ahh ok, I thought it meant meant no posibility of downloading eShop games on the console. I'll just buy them if I find it worth my money. The only eShop game that has been worth my money were full games I could play on cards anyway.

    120 dollar for a flash cart is way over the limit, gateway was allready too expensive.

    EDIT: It said it works on version 9.0.0-20 . It could mean that there is a loophole in this version only.

    Hahahaha. On Reddit! The 3DS subreddit is pretty active and USAhotstuff.com posted the link to the video there. I just watched and copied the link.
    Sky3ds' website looks spammy though. They'll need to clean it up i feel to bring in skeptics
    Frankly, I looked at it and thought this isn't real.

    lets just hope they're really bad at website design and using that as a placeholder.
