  2. Glad to know the eShop will stay online, at least for the next few years i guess. Surprisingly there is still people playing Mario Kart 7 and Monster Hunter 4 online, just checked a few days ago on my 3DS.

  3. I love my 3ds XL! But I wasn’t crazy about the whole downloadable game experience. I’ve gone back to cartridges with the Switch. But I’m glad they will keep the eshop stuff up in case something happens to people’s games..
