It offers many unique features and comes with perfect 3ds game compatibility. And the gateway 3ds includes two cards, the gateway 3ds flashcard and bundled gateway blue card, since you only need the blue card for firmware updates, many users  never really kept it with the 3ds and the red card, then the blue gateway 3ds card was lost, now the question arises: is there any site where I can buy  just the gateway blue card? Or could I use the other ds rom flashcart instead?
