    Most likely between 9.6 - 10.3 but as of now everything up to 10.6(current fw) is downgradeable so you'll be fine no matter what.

    Thanks. I saw that 10.6 downgrade is possible but as I'd need a copy of cubic ninja I was hoping that 10.6 consoles had hit store shelves yet.

    Currently Firmware v9.9 is embedded in New 3DS and New 3DS XL regular packs in the market.

    With a bit of searching you can find consoles that are on 9.0.0
