You can launch the Gateway menu for New 3DS  all the way up to firmware 9.2, with the use of the “Cubic Ninja” game!

Owners of a retail copy of “Cubic Ninja” from the USA, EUR or JAP region will be able to use the Gateway 3DS cartridge with New 3DS and enjoy all the cool features as usual!

The installation for the Cubic Ninja launching method works as follows:

* Make sure WiFi is configured and working on your New 3DS (You will only need this once)
* Make sure Gateway 3.1.1 Launcher.dat is placed on the New 3DS microSD card
* Start “Cubic Ninja”
* Go to “Create” menu option
* Select “QR Code”
* Select “Scan QR Code”
* Scan the Gateway Cubic Ninja QR code found in the Downloads section for you region
* After a brief wait, a Cubic Ninja savegame will be installed
* And the Gateway menu will be launched

After this one time installation you can invoke Gateway menu as follows:
* Start “Cubic Ninja”
* Go to “Create” menu option
* Select “QR Code”
* Gateway menu should appear
Quote: “The Gateway team has also noticed the multirom menu is not working properly on New 3DS 8.1.0J, and community members confirmed so far that updating EmuNAND to latest firmware fixes this issue as a temporary workaround.

Another pending issue they are working on fixing is the broken “head tracking” functionality in Gateway mode on New 3DS. However, some clever community members discovered an easy
temporary workaround until we develop a proper fix for this issue: Simply close your New 3DS lid while in Gateway mode to put the console in sleep mode, re-open the lid and head tracking should be working again as expected.

Last but not least: We have received a decent amount of feedback with regards to incompatibility with certain specific versions of “Zelda: Ocarina of Time”.
We are still working on improving compatibility; expect more news soon!

NOTE: Support for launching the Gateway menu through Cubic Ninja or Zelda Ocarina of Time on the Classic 3DS is not implemented yet.
If we get enough interested users we will consider implementing it for the Classic 3DS too”.
