So I had 3DS sitting here doing nothing and I thought I'd try this new Gateway 3DS card. As it arrived few days back I thought I'd finally pop it in for a test. You get 2 cards inside box, the actual Gateway 3DS card (white card) & an R4 card (blue card). The R4 card is initially used for installing the GW patch (technically, you can use any R4i card to run this part). At this point my 3DS kept freezing when following the install instructions, which after further research I found out why. My 3DS is on firmware version 3.0.0e and the GW patch is specifically designed to run only on firmware between 4.1 & 4.5. So at this stage my review is halted until I source out an original game with the right software update to apply.




Bellow is a list of games that contain software updates from 4.1 up to 4.5 for those who wish to update their 3DS to work with the Gateway card (list obtained from 3DS Games with firmware updates in the 4.1 - 4.5 range - EurAsiaWiki). Make sure not to update to anything over 4.5 as this will stop the Gateway card from working on your handheld.
