The New Nintendo 3DS Can Work as a Network Storage Device

New Nintendo 3DS

NeoGAF user richisawesome has discovered a setting on the New Nintendo 3DS that gives it full network sharing capability. Here’s what he had to say:

So, I got my New Nintendo 3DS XL today. Did a system transfer from my UK console, all went well. Decided to have a look at the new functions on the system menu. microSD Management? That’s new. Let’s try that.

So there you have it, players worldwide can use their New Nintendo 3DS systems to help them create Network Storage Devices and transfer files.

Some of you may be wondering why this user’s file directory contains folders such as GB and SNES. Let’s just say a large portion of New Nintendo 3DS owners picked up this handheld for the sole purpose of joining the ranks of the Homebrew community–a group of programmers and hackers that get together to build apps and programs for the system without authorization.

There was quite a scare among Nintendo eShop developers earlier this month when Homebrew community poster boy smealum revealed the game that allowed Homebrewers to take advantage of this exploit (which you can read about here), but the Homebrew Launcher is built around preventing piracy so we’ll see how that goes.

Will you be making full use of the network sharing capability on the New Nintendo 3DS? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
