    Very likely but Ninty MAY decide to upgrade the firmware such that it will block them until flashcart developers find a way to circumvent it which normally appears pretty quickly. So you'd prob not be able to use it for say.... a few days at most, give and take?

    There's no way to know until it's released. If you're concerned, wait until it's out and check around the Internet for such information before buying one.

    Not really concerned, I'd be getting it for KH3DDD either way. Was just curious :P

    somewhere
    Just wait a few days after launch and see what happens like the rest of us.
    Or u can get it day 1 and let us know if it works.

    Making an educated guess off of the release of both the DSi XL and the 3DS... it should be possible.

    I'd be surprised if it didn't, an update for the flashcarts perhaps, as it's a 3DS with larger screens and flashcarts operate on the 3DS.

    I say that it will sports the 4.1.0-8 Menu and thus flashcarts will work.

    3DS XL will share the same firmware of the original 3DS.
    Known that, I can assure you that Acekard 2i will always work on 3DS XL,
    just needing firmware updates now and then ;)
