    I want to download the monster hunter 3g demo that comes out today. Anyone know if there is a way to do such a thing?

    Just change your region to Japan.

    I thought the 3DS consoles were region-locked to specific regions and couldn't be changed.

    Even if you manage to get to eshop with a exploit, apparently the apps are region locked too.
