Which R4 card can work on Nintendo 2DS?


Since Nintendo 2DS has been released, many users concern dose the r4 card which work on 3DS also support work on 2DS? The answer is yes. But there are several points need be attention.

First, all r4 card just support play ds games on 3DS or 2DS, they cannot play 3ds games. If you want to play 3DS games, choose gateway 3ds. GW3DS is the world’s first 3ds flashcart which support play 3ds games on 3DS. But this product is not perfectly, it just support v4.1-v4.5 system. So if your 3DS system above v4.5, gateway 3ds cannot work on it. So does gateway 3ds support 2DS? The answer is no. All 2DS Factory Version above v4.5, their factory version is v6.0.0-x. So gateway 3ds cannot play on it. The other r4i card can play ds games on 2DS.

Now, we know that there are many r4i card in the market, some can work on 2DS, some cannot, becuase 2DS system is above v6.0, so some clone r4 card cannot support this system. Which flashcart can work on 2DS? Here has some i recommend, they tested by very many users, they are best, popular and hot flashcarts.

First is dstwo. dstwo is not r4 card, but dstwo is the stronggest flashcart, that is why it is more expensive than r4 card, but it worth that price. you will never worry about system update, dstwo always break it quickly. So if money is not your problem, just buy dstwo.

Then the best r4 card is r4i gold 3ds rts. It is a high quality card, r4i gold 3ds rts team is strong, they break system update quick too. So if you want to by a r4 card, r4i gold 3ds is no doubt your first choice.

Ri4 sdhc 3ds rts card. This is a classic card, welcome in many country. R4i dual core, r4i sdhc rts card, these 2 cards from one company, they popular in Europe, its beautiful happy box package very fit for a gift!

The flashcards work on 3DS v6.3.0-12


According to our test, the follow flashcards work on 3DS v6.3.0-12 perfectly.

Supercard DSTwo

The stronggest flashcard in the market right now, work on 3DS v6.3 directly no need any updating. You can use it out of box.

R4i Gold 3DS

If you think dstwo is a little expensive, i think you can buy r4i gold 3ds. r4i gold 3ds is the best r4 card in the market, the price is almost half of dstwo, but the card quality is very good. I recommend this card for you.


The new r4i sdhc 3ds rts card which work on 3ds v6.2 also support work on 3ds v6.3, no need any updating. but if your r4i sdhc 3ds rts card cannot work on 3ds v6.2, should download the latest kernel v1.74b and update your card first.


Ace3DS PLUS is the cheapest 3ds flashcard, the new ace3ds plus which launched after 3rd Sep. work on 3ds v6.3 directly. You may think the old card cannot support v6.3, but official said they are developping the patch. Well, as a so cheap card, i think ace3ds plus is good enough for players. The team always try their best to offer better game experience.

There are other 3 cards from same company support work on 3DS v6.3 too, they are r4i dual core, r4i silver card and r4i gold pro. But they cannot work directly, you need use the patch to udpate the card first.

Have to say, this card is hot, so when Nintendo 3DS update the system to v5.0.0-11, many users concerned if the r4i sdhc 3ds work on 3DS v5.0.0-11? The answer is yes. But need use the newest firmware v1.67b. Here is the details:

R4i-sdhc 3ds card marked with “v4.5″ and “RTS” which can support N3DS V5.0.0-11 and NDSi v1.4.5 perfectly, please update the firmware to V1.67b.
