3DS eShop analysis tool is a python script to help you get deeper insights into the Nintendo 3DS eshops.

This script will scrape the Nintendo 3DS eShops for all available regions (> 200 regions), merge the data, and compare with the 3dsdb and the data from that titlekey site. It gives insights (among others) into what titles are available globally, and what titles have already been archived.

User guide

Requirements

  • An up-to-date installation of Python 3 (at least 3.6.x).
  • The requests module installed (py -3 -mpip install requests from the command line).

How to run

Run the script the script via py -3 eat.py (or python3 eat.py on unix). Theese are highly recommeded:

  • To include information about titlekeys to the results, add -t [TITLEKEYURL] or --titlekeyurl [TITLEKEYURL].
    • Whereas [TITLEKEYURL] is the URL (with 'http//') of that titlekeys site.
    • If you don't want to do this every time, edit titlekeyurl in the source code (it's right at the top).
  • To add proper title ids and title sizes to the results, provide ctr-common-1.crt and ctr-common-1.key.

(optional) If you want to limit the scope of analysed regions, provide -r [REGION] or --region=[REGION], whereas [REGION] is english, main or the two letter country code of a specific region.

Resulting CSV files will be written to the results subdirectory, intermediate dumps will be written to the dumped subdirectory.
