Good ol’ nintendo! I’ve never seen a company more anal about piracy than these guys. Remember a couple years ago when they removed all traces of their soundtracks online? Haha good times…
Anyways, As of 2023 the Nintendo eshop will no longer be available for digital purchases to be made. We know the console is a decade old already we knew its time was coming, but the lack of backwards compatibility when compared to any console shocked me. For context, Usually once a console becomes obsolete, its games (at least the most popular ones) are occasionally ported to an online store, or the console allows backwards compatibility with the disks. But with the 3DS, a huge majority of its later titles only exist on the 3ds. If you wanted to play these games currently (and legally)? Guess you have to find a reasonably priced copy on ebay!


this is more of a ramble about roms over piracy (they relate ya know? but i feel like this is somewhat of a tangent compared to the main arguemnt) so take this as a bonus! i cannot comprehend why
