The Sky3ds plus is a flashcard for all Nintendo 3ds firmware machines with which you can play free 3ds games. Can you play with the most recent update in 2019 E-Shop or Nintendo Switch games? Let’s check it.
What is the Sky3ds plus?
The Sky3ds flashcard was released for playing Nintendo 3DS Games for free. The sky3ds plus is the latest version of Sky3ds which can play almost all Nintendo 3DS Games. You can also play the newer titles like Pokemon Ultra Sun, Pokemon Ultra Moon and Mario Party The Top 100 with the plus version of Sky3ds.
Can Sky3ds plus play E-Shop 3ds games?
If you want to run the most recent 3DS games, then you will need to go with Sky3DS+! Sky3DS+ is currently the only cartridge that is upgradeable, meaning that once a new 3DS game is released, it will be supported by the Sky3DS+ and most importantly it is compatible with all 3DS devices, regardless of version numbers. But it cant play Nintendo E-Shop games because the Sky3ds is working on the Nintendo 3DS by emulating a 3DS game cartridge to cheat the 3DS System. So E-Shop games are not working and they won’t work with any other flashcard too.
Can 2019 Sky3ds support Nintendo Switch games?
The Nintendo Switch is now released for more than two years and recently the new Nintendo Switch Lite came out too. The Sky3ds is not compatible with the Nintendo
Switch or any Nintendo Switch games. It works on any 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, NEW 3DS, and NEW 3DS XL console but it will never support the Nintendo Switch because they are two completely different systems.

than visit the Sky3DS website and download the latest firmware which is available. Once you have downloaded it, it will be in RAR format, extract the file using WinRAR or any other RAR extraction software. You will find a file called “firmware.bin”. Copy this file and place it into the root of your microSD card. Eject your microSD card to continue.
After this insert your microSD card to your Sky3DS+ cartridge. Connect the Sky3Ds with the micro USB cable to your PC/Laptop.

Your Sky3DS+ will be now updated to the latest version.
For the last step transfer .3DS games to the root of your microSD card, the filenames should end in .3DS. Remember that the game must be the same region as your console. Once you have transferred the games onto your microSD card, insert the Sky3DS+ to your console.
