Gateway news updated ! The gateway 3ds flashcard finally comes out next week

It’s over a month past since the news come for the real 3ds flashcard – gateway 3ds can play backup 3ds roms . Today the news has updated finally.

Quote the official news for you here:

GATEWAY 3DS UPDATE , Officially opening of pre-orders !

Gateway is please to announce start of manufacturing and the opening of pre-orders. We expect to roll out the first units to resellers within the next fortnight.

Please pay special attention to the following critical information regarding our current software development phase.

1) Yes, we are exploit based (Yay !?) and therefore very dependent on console firmware version: Our current plan is to release for firmware version 4.5 while continuing work on a solution for 6.x + after release. (please see note below)

2) Gateway will be shipped with 2 cards, the red Gateway shown in our video, which will handle 3ds backups, and a blue ds cart which will be used to prepare the console. ( more demo videos showing save game compatibility as well as setup procedures to follow soon )

3) Your console can be safely updated to 4.5 by using an original title released after March 2013 till current. Please double check the update message (version) before proceeding !


We currently have a very convenient and user friendly way to enter into our Gateway mode, while this entry point has been tested up to 6.0 we expect it to be shut off shortly after we release. We can not stress enough the importance of staying away from any further updates! ( 6.0 compatibility is only valid for our initial entry point, as stated in point (1) we currently only support firmware version 4.5 ).

OK, the great news is we can play the backup 3ds roms since it’s in stock. However , the bad news is we only play 3ds roms on 4.x system. That will be
the biggest problem , most of the 3ds / 3ds xl system may be force to update to 6.x as Nintendo want take action for the 3ds flashcart hacking.
What’s worse , the gateway 3ds flashcard maybe with region blocked which many players would not like it.
What earth will the gateway 3ds flashcard be? Maybe , we need to review after next week.
