    I'm asking because on the site it says that you need cubic ninja for some QR code, can't I use animal crossing new leaf for that or any other software that allows for QR scanning? And if not, why?

    As far as I can tell, Cubic Ninja has a specific code that allowed smea to allow the code to install Homebrew work when it came to the QR Code feature.

    Honestly I hope there will be more games supported in the future because we all know Cubic Ninja is out of print and it's either hard to find, or expensive. But who knows honestly.

    It's game specific, but you could try to port it. :P

    That QR code most likely exploits code only found in Cubic Ninja that isn't necessarily in other games like Animal Crossing or Tomodachi Life or any other game that uses QR scanning.

    TY for the fast reply, so I just have to buy cubic ninja, oh well, I guess it is worth it, considering more and more apps are coming to the homebrew channel.

    Yeah, but just be aware that like I said before, it's kind of hard to find now a days since EVERYONE wants to get it now for the purpose of getting Homebrew, so.. good luck!

    It is OK, I found the game for 25 dollars on a "eBay" for my country, and it looks like no body really cares about it , other than me of course.

    Yea I guess it depends were you are. I thought I would never find a copy in stores let alone a few days after smea announced the game (all my online orders were rejected because they couldn't get any more copies). Gave the closest Ebgames to me a call yesterday they had a brand new copy for 8$ which they held for me then walked across the road to JB-HIFI had a second hand copy for 14$.

    Interesting, maybe my local GameStop has a copy there too for a cheap price.

    Gotta be that one game. It's a cubic ninja bug, not a 3DS bug.

    And obviously if the game with a QR Code function was made by Nintendo themselves, they'll do anything to make sure stuff like Ninjhax can't happen.

    well it's really more just that Cubic's programmers didn't do as good of a job closing such vulnerabilities. Can't really say Nintendo is sure to be smarter since the first Wii exploit was Twilight Princess. Even the big guys make major mistakes. I bet Nintendo wishes they had someone to be furious at now (since the company that made Cubic was bought out a long time ago)

    That's the way to go indeed. Stay away from the well known international sites such as Ebay for stuff like this. Instead, go local.
    I found my copy of the game that way too, using a price comparing search-engine that only searches in my own country.

    I believe cubic ninja is becoming the second "cave story 3D".
