    Im going to import a Jap new 3ds next week and i would like to know what firmware comes with it. It would be really nice if you could tell me what color and model is it. I really need a 9.xx one because once Gateway release his new update Nintendo will update asap and im not going to be able to update to 9.xx unless i get a Jap copy of a games that updates my console to 9.xx.

    Since you're from the Netherlands, why not an Australian N3DS? Also, I believe both come with 8.X in box

    fellow dutchie here, any new 3ds will ship with a usable fw. Why would you specifically require one on 9.x? I'm flying to Japan in ~13 days and I plan on picking up a new 3ds LL, so if you can wait then I'll be able to tell. I'm sure someone will beat me to it tho XD.
    also... Japanese 3ds are hella cheap compared to Australian ones. I'm paying ~ €125 for my LL. The profit margins on those things by online sellers are insane!

    I'll side with zerou above and recommend you buy an aus model though, unless the region lock and language are not issues for you.

    The Japanese ones that are standard come with 8.1, the newer ones like the ssb limited edition comes with a higher one. All the Australian ones come with 9.0.

    When you say higher one, is it something like 8.x or 9.x? Also, where can I find this (in case of future bundle releases)?

    I just got my Japanese new 3DS LL in today and it came with 8.1. I quickly updated to 9.2.0.20 because I'm afraid of a new update coming soon.

    bought 2 SSB LL. Came with 8.1J. Right set is after the update from 8.1 to 9.2.

    In case you're wondering if they are really SSB sets...

    Thanks everyone for their response, so the only way of getting a 9.x console is importing it from australia right?

    yeah makes me want to poke some AUS people I know to see if by any chance they're going back home for the holidays.. If not, fuck it. I'll risk not being able to do homebrew XD that price online is bs
