    Nintendo rolled out a new update (v9.6.0-24) for their line of handheld consoles last night and this time it's not just for the sake of "stability improvements" - it actually provides a plethora of new functionality you guys might be interested in:​
    Sounds fancy-shmancy, especially folder layouts. Hopefully Nintendo will also roll out the collectible badges programme in the west - never too much customization options, right?​

    "Improvements to the system and overall stability and usability",
    does this mean that OOT exploit has been patched?

    What did you expect? The 2DS/3DS/3DS XL don't have an NFC sensor, of course they require a peripheral. The N3DS/N3DS XL support Amiibos natively.

    Obviously I didn't expect amiibo support by black magic.

    First, nintendo selling this plastic with chip garbage at low quantities for scalpers enjoying scalping, now nintendo releases a "new peripheral" in order people would spend more money on gimmicks.

    ...the 3DS is your first Nintendo console, isn't it. :unsure:

    I kid, I kid. My point being, it's not the first time Nintendo's done this. In fact, I'm pretty sure they've released useless peripherals for each and every system they've ever made, including the NES. For all intents and purposes this is just more incentive to upgrade to an N3DS for them, they have to provide some functionality that's exclusive to it without alienating the fanbase they've amassed with the earlier revision.

    Yeah, just like the super gameboy, or the gameboy player, whose were worth it.
    My point was about how "optionnal" amiibos are. To me the "new peripheral" is not helping them. I know some people would enjoy it, but many won't buy for sure.

    And FYI I have a lot of nintendo consoles :lol: But I got your point :P



    But this one is for people conplaining about gateway being blocked again
