Ironfall Invasion Has Been Removed from the 3DS eShop…
Remember how a while back, Ironfall Invasion was being suggested as a game to use in 3DS hacking? How Smealum’s latest project let gamers use eShop versions of Ironfall Invasion as a means to run homebrew games and emulators through something called IRONHAX?
Well, it seems like Nintendo was paying some sort of attention, since the entire game is now temporarily gone from the eShop. Because apparently, letting people choose how they want to use their own games is a perfectly reasonable thing to use as a reason to take down an indie title…
IRONFALL Invasion is temporarily unavailable on Nintendo eShop. Apologies for the inconvenience. Stay tuned for more information.

Personally, I think it’s kind of sad that Nintendo goes to these stupid lengths to prevent homebrew and stuff on their systems. I bought a 3DS, I choose what programs I run on it. If you don’t like that, then tough luck. None of your business to tell people what they can use devices they bought themselves for.
Either way, Ironfall Invasion is now not on the 3DS eShop, and Nintendo says you should ‘stay tuned for further information’
