    Just curious if games like...

    Zelda
    Metroid
    Flashback

    will all work well on the old 3ds xl. It seems like DSTwo is the better option but not sure I want to spend $50 on it (assuming it's actually in stock)

    Yeah, unfortunately I saw that. Thought it was strange to see but yeah I have an old 3ds as it's one my niece hasnt been using. Not sure I want to spend $200 to get a new one :)

    I looked at the compatibility lists - looks like they have issues with the games? Though not clear if the issues are really just minor

    It work. Theres a emulator for R4 generic flashcards that run most of the commercial Roms. But's a bit laggy in some games, you have to test those 3 you want to see if the speed is OK for you.
