– 100% game compatibility
– Multirom menu
– Gateway and Classic mode
– Emunand !
– Eshop application support AND Eshop ROMs support
– Homebrew support
– Savegame backup and restore
– Gamecard dumping
– System nand dumping
– EXFAT and FAT32 support
– And many more features
Here what the gateway team had to say about this release with a little guide for the New 3DS..
We have spent months trying to find an alternative method that did not require you to have anything extra for New 3DS similar to our original 3DS solution, but we now realise that we should just have released what we have and improve it iteratively!
And that’s exactly what we are doing! We polished our current solution and made it into something we would feel comfortable with to release as a beta.
Keep in mind that finding a more convenient solution for our New 3DS users will remain a priority task to us.
We decided to release this as a public beta, so if you find any serious issues, please let us know.
Our current New 3DS solution is still a work in progress but it is a fully WORKING solution and that’s all that matters currently.
Currently we know there are a few minor issues in our release but we feel these are not serious show stopper bugs to put this beta release on hold.
One example is the paused head tracking and the 3D slider switching incorrectly between 2D and 3D when in Gateway or Classic mode.
But rest assured, we are working on fixing these bugs!
