    Let's say I had a US Nintendo 3DS and I got me a Japanese 3DS game that is no region protection, would the US 3DS console able to play/accept that game?

    or Vice-versa?

    No, the region protection is built into the 3DS software, not the game.

    Yes.
    Exactly, only the DS games are region free.
