    Nice find, but we can't do anything unless we get out hands on one. :(

    Well seeing as how Nintendo Zone has the ability to write data into the 3DS, in heavily speculative theory we could wirte data directly into it. Now something like rom loading may be far fetched but it could be possible to edit the firmware or even replace it entirely. Or at the very least access some kind of internal memory. Didn't the hackers do something like this with DSDownload stations?

    I forget where I read it, but I think this is basically a modified DSi XL. I think it might have been the Nintendo Zone in your home thread. I'll look now for a link.


    Edit: Found it - http://gbatemp.net/blog/1093/entry-8960-nintendo-zone-3ds-eur/


    I knew I saw it here.

    I did read it. Did you happen to notice the AC adapter being the same one used in a DSi/3DS?

    Wouldn't be very hard for Nintendo to modify existing hardware to make this. Probably far cheaper than designing all new hardware, too.

    You can just get N-zone with a normal router.. I don't see anything great about this.

    is this basically a N-zone/ ds download service that is able to show what has been downloaded?

    HEY WAIT A MINUTE! THIS IS THAT DEMO THING AT JAPANESE TOYS R US PLACES! It's for DS, not the 3DS! (Someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

    Also, close up photo of Nintendo Zone cartridge: http://n-dev.net/attachment.php?aid=12

    XD That's pure speculation, you can get N-Zone through a router but I think its more of a link to the server rather then an actual program like this one. I could be wrong though.

    I think this is for DSi's Nintendo Zone, not 3DS.
    The manual doesn't mention anything about the DSi though.

    The DSi Nintendo Zones were abandoned since they could only be put up in a few places in Europe prior to the deal Nintendo made with AT&T

    These are the N-Zones for the nintendo ds.
    in the manual it states:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    It says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT THE 3DS.
    Nintendo's announcement of these from 2008: http://www.nintendo.com/whatsnew/detail/waUaocRmskcPG27usK_1E6n3eIx4jE_9

    Yeah, looking at the back, it says 2008-2010. The 3DS was barely announced back then, if at all. It's for DS/DSL.
