    I'd say this pretty much confirms Nintendo doesn't plan to drop 3DS right after the Switch comes out. They wouldn't even bother with this if that were the case. Maybe I should bite the bullet and just pay $200 for the N3DS XL. I was trying not to since I already have both old models of the 3DS. Both with arm9loaderhax and luma.

    Also it's kinda funny that nintendo is doing this, but doesn't give a damn about Wii U hacking. Lol.

    Maybe to get as much information they can get and implement it on the switch
