    Hey guys! I am currently looking into buying a New 3DS XL and just had a few questions.

    1. Does Gateway 3DS currently work for the New 3DS XL?

    2. How do i tell when buying my New 3DS XL that my console is version 9.2 or under? Is there a certain barcode number or something that i could look for?

    Thanks, those are really my only pressing questions and i would love it if they wer answered!

    New 3DS has two choices:

    1. Gateway (Requires Cubic Ninja or Zelda Ocarina of TIme initially)

    2. Pasta CFW (Requires Cubic Ninja)

    So if you wanted a free alternative and you already have Cubic Ninja, I'd say give Pasta CFW a try.

    If you still want to go the Gateway path, I can sell you mine for $50. It'll come with a 32 GB micro SD.

    Is there anyway to do it without a cubic ninja or Zelda Ocarina of Time?

    No, unless you consider using a Sky3ds to emulate either of those games not using them. But a Sky3ds would cost more than either game. :P
