Can I play Cake Mania 4/Word Searcher 3 or will I get lost if I haven't played the previous 3/2?
The long-awaited 3DS system update is due on the evening of June 6 Pacific time - it will include accesss to the eShop, as well as the internet browser. And I think you lose your OK Go video from the last update, so watch those dogs jump around in 3D while you still can.
I wouldn't worry too much about spoiling things. Besides if they have the game interact the seasons already passed we all know how things go already right? They may use the time old alternate character scenario.
