    Its CIA files legally signed by Nintendo.
    They are pre-installed games that come with o3DS/N3DS/2DS bundles.

    If you have luma + a9lh, you dont have to worry about legit vs not legit. all cias are safe online, unless you play them before release day.

    It is but then again, I've been reading mix results of people being banned by playing CIA games but most of those people were using out-of-region CIAS, so if you are using a CIA for your region, I'll assume you're safe, but you never know.
    Don't cheat online.

    I saw the people asking this question atleast 2 times.
    May be we should create CIA FAQ? Or did we have it already?

    No, I don't blame you since this answer can only appear if people using a search option.
    Just, think of it should be FAQ cause people ask it many times.

    Legit cias are literally a stickied thread.
