Nintendo 3DS Exploit game revealed! – Smealum’s exploit game is…
… the Nintendo 3DS game ‘Cubic Ninja‘!
Smealum said that it does not matter if you are using the retail (cartridge) version of the game, or if you buy it from the Nintendo eShop. Smea added that the game only exists in the japanese eShop, so a retail cartridge will to be your choice for this exploit, I assume.
The game is usually around 7€/10$, but this will most likely change very very soon! (Note from wololo: in Japan the game can be found around 1800 to 3000 yen)
Keep in mind that retail versions of exploit games will be sold out very fast and people will buy multiple versions of the game to re-sell them for double or thrice the price!
The exploit should be working with any kind of regional version of the game, be it a northern american, an european, a german, a japanese or an australian version.
It should work as long as your 3DS region matches the games region (e.g. an european 3DS with an european 3DS game).
But what can we do with it, and which firmwares and devices does it support?
This is a classic savedata exploit, like we know it from our beloved PS Vita or from the older days of the PSP. You have to buy (retail or digital shop version) a necessary exploit game in order to run the exploit on your device.
You can NOT download it for free from the internet and people can not share their version of the game with you, if they have a digital version (retail works, though).
You HAVE TO BUY the exploit game, otherwise you can not use this exploit on your Nintendo 3DS.
The exploit is confirmed to work on all Nintendo 3DS system software versions, as of version 9.2.0-20, and should also support any of the hardware revisions of the ‘3DS family’.
This would include the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, New 3DS and the New 3DS XL. Basically any Nintendo handheld device that can play 3DS games is supported.
But what can we do with this exploit?
If you remember the Wii Homebrew channel, which is a similar styled launcher, for all kind homebrews, as our well known VHBL, then you will most likely know what the 3DS Homebrew launcher will be able to do.
Smealum’s exploit is a userland exploit that allows us to execute homebrews via the 3DS Homebrew channel. It does not enable piracy in form of NDS or 3DS ROMs, but it will enable you to use cool homebrews and classic emulators for older systems, e.g. St4rk’s 3DNES emulator.
What else it will enable you to do on your 3DS will be known when the files have been officially released.
Those files will be released in near future, similar to our behavior with keeping the files for a few days, until Sony removes the ninja release exploit games.
We will inform you when the files have been released and will explain how to actually use the files and execute the exploit on your Nintendo 3DS device.
This truely has been a cubical ninja release, ehh? No one..? Okay.
