Hi :)

My Majora's mask 3DS XL is on 9.0 and I don't want to update to a newer firmware. Today I purchased Xenoblade chronicles but I'm afraid to put the game cartridge in my console in case it force updates.

I was wondering if anyone on here knows what system update the game comes with? Any advice? Thank you!

It comes with 9.4 but I think you can play it in GW classic mode.
Thank you for that :) I don't actually have gateway installed on my console. But I'd like to leave it on 9.0 in case I ever want to use gateway or for a higher resale value.

So if I was to install the latest gateway, would I be able to play my genuine retail cartridge without emunand?

Going by what I see on the rom's SDK info, you should need firm 9.3 to play it -- which of course means mandatory emunand. I could be wrong, (don't have the cart to test), so if someone could confirm/deny my claim, please do so.

Oh ok, thank you for your help :) I guess I'll just have to play the game on my standard new 3DS with the inferior screen :(

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.

    i just saw a video yesterday that mentioned how it's a good thing 1-2-switch wasn't a pack in title because it would've made everyone lose faith in the switch immediately and they might have a point
