We have recently reached a major milestone regarding the 7.x encryption. We can say with certainty that we will soon be running 7.x games and 7.x applications (like eShop, PokeBank and YouTube) in our labs.

We can already say that this will be possible with the current gateway hardware and will be supported in the form of a regular firmware update.

Some people might think we’re overcautious with releasing new firmware updates and holding stuff back.

But we would like to reiterate once again that quality assurance and smooth product experience is on the top of our lists. We really take our time to test everything as much as we can.

There’s a bunch of other (interesting) developments going on besides the 7.x encryption fix at the moment; but we will brief you guys about them in a later (more lengthy) news update. Most questions we get at the moment are 7.x related, so this one will be released out as soon as possible.


Thank you for your patience once again.


We thank everyone for their praise and feedback regarding our latest firmware which brought homebrew and online play support.

With each new firmware update we prove to be unrivalled in our originality, ingenuity and support.

Innovation and fantastic product support are the key ideas that sets us apart from the imitators.

These key ideas are what ensure our community will prosper.


Yes, we heard the feedback about the savegame mechanism, and we have plans to improve this and bring it to a whole new level of support.

Yes, we heard about the latest 7.2.0 system firmware, and there is no need to worry.


We have been working on the new encryption puzzle added by the later system firmwares but as they say, the proof is in the pudding.

And unfortunately the pudding is not ready yet, but we know it will be delicious.

This is our top priority right now so please bear with us while we stir and work our magic!


And as always, support the innovators not the imitators!
