I have a softmodded New 3DS XL for sale. It was purchased second hand from the local Cash Converters store, I softmodded it (fifth 2/3DS console I have modded) in late 2017/early 2018 and used it to play the 3rd gen Pokemon remakes and Sun/Moon. Now that new Pokemon games are not coming out on 3DS anymore, I have no use for it.


It is the blue model, and it is in great condition, as shown in the photos.


It is running 11.8.0, will come with a 16GB MicroSD card, and will have my user profile removed.


I am looking for $150 for a (hopefully) quick sale.


Located in Palmerston North, can ship nationwide at buyer's cost.

Potentially a silly question, what does the mod do? I've never heard of Luma. I have a US 3DS, so I've bought all my games from there. Does the mod make it region free and able to play US-sourced 3DS games?


Battery life and charger?

Not a silly question at all! Yes, it allows you to play games from all regions, amongst other things. It also allows you to install homebrew applications, games and emulators, modify save games, stream your 3DS screen to your computer for recording, and other things I don't think I am allowed to mention on these forums.

Battery life and charger?

As I purchased all of my previous consoles second hand, I am not aware how long the battery lasts when new so I cannot compare. I also haven't used this in a few months so I cannot remember how long the battery lasts, but I am pretty sure it's at least a good 3 or 4 hours of solid playing. It comes with the charger, yes. Forgot to mention that in the original post.
