    The title sounds a bit unclear, so I'll clarify. I live in Japan and have a Japanese 3DS. I was wondering if accessing it's eshop and downloadable contents is possible if one were to try to access it from the US. Does it work like normal, or does that get blocked out if you're accessing from another country?

    There's gotta be someone with a Japanese 3DS who can tell me. Thanks.

    Your DS will access the content of the country it's system code is associated with, it is independant of IP.

    cool, thanks. I figured. Just wanted to make sure, cuz it would suck if I move to another country and suddenly can't access any online stuff.
