    Hi, I'm purchasing the MH New 3DS XL that's coming to NA in a month and wanted to get a head start on things. I notice that Gateway still won't work on the New 3DS and Sky3DS is basically my only option. I'll probably hold off on that.

    What I am interested though is the ability to play gba games (because most of the gba games I want to play either released VC in the Wii U or not at all). It doesn't look like Gateway has that capability. I'm reading that DSTWO is my only choice, is this true? Will DSTWO work on the latest OFW? Is Nintendo still blocking DS carts on their 3DS FW? (that is, what are the chances this card gets blocked in the future if I just continue updating my 3DS). Also, will this work on the "New" 3DS? And how good is the compatibility with gba games?
