Nintendo’s latest 3DS firmware update didn’t just add new save backup functionality. It also took down Gateway’s flashcart. Gateway, however, claims to be “working on making it compatible as quickly as possible” – not exactly the kind of thing Nintendo would like to hear. Nonetheless, these flashcarts have been stopped for now.
Gateway was in the news last month for declaring that it managed to create the first working 3DS flashcart. It allows games to run through microSD cards, which led to concerns regarding piracy.
