    Hi folks,
    I've been out of the whole DS / DSI / 3DS loop for the last 2 years.
    Still got a dusty DS Lite, which I am going to upgrade to a 3DS XL.
    So what would be the best Flashcard for it? I see many names now, and a little lost.

    Also, (Yes I read the Sticky note) the 3DS roms are not supported at the moment, so I am assuming that
    the 2D part from a 3DS game does not work either then right?

    SuperCard DStwo is the ultimate Flashcart.

    Thanks.
    Looking into it right now.

    As for the other question, the answer is No, it doesn't work for that either?

    I don't quite understand what you mean. The 3DS will not have 3D capabilities, as the system is running a DS game. Anything played on a Flashcart will be in 2D.

    What I was getting at is that a xxx.3ds game will not run, but was wondering if the 2d part from a 3DS rom was working within that. But I think that won't work from reading on the DSTWO site.

    Edit: I see you can buy/download 3DS games from Gamestop, so that's why I am confused

    3DS games can only be played from original cartridges, or downloads from Nintendo eShop.

    Thank you all.
    Going to order that Flashcard and picking up a 3DS XL. Still got my 8Gb from my Cyclo card so that should work..
    I'm assuming that the 3DS XL has another slot for a SDHC card? since if you download stuff, and those games are 500mb - 2 gb I see

    IS there a place in the US that ships those SuperCard DStwo cards, or is it all from Japan/China ?

    They're made in China, any stores that ship "out of the US" or something is a store that imports them from China first, and then resells them to you (to get quicker shipping times after you order).
