    region changed emunand, but don't know if that works on gateway since I don't own one... better wait for someone who actually done it...

    i remember seeing some mention of a trick involving selecting a game from the gateway menu (but not starting it just so it shows in the card slot on the homescreen) that defaults to the desired language, then using a cia version of the game you want to be in that language (or something along those lines), never tried this method though so im not 100% on the details

    if you have cubic ninja you can use pasta CFW install it as cia, then use NTR CFW with the language plugin to use English

    You can always grab a cia version and install it on pasta. Then boot ntr with the language plug in and you can use English or whatever languages are bundled wih the game

    The problem is the game is not compatible with language plugin, its stuck on "Nintendo 3DS" booting screen. Well then, i guess changing emunand region is the only solution.

    BTW, i found japanese version is pretty playable, thanks to english voices.

    Do the rom selector trick, I have done it since switching to a JPN N3DSLL

    1. Make sure the game you want to play is installed as a CIA
    2. In Emunand mode, have the cursor on the cia you want to play in english
    3. Open the rom selector and choose a US/EUR game, (I like to use EUR smash since that's always in my gateway SD card)
    4. BEFORE THE CURSOR AUTO-MOVES TO THE 3DS CARD ICON, press A quick enough so it launches the cia your cursor is on that you want in english.
    4a.(So I select Smash in the rom slector and continue pressing A so it immediately launches STEAM).

    Tested personally with a Codename STEAM cia, EUR Smash Rom, on a JPN N3DSLL Emunand on Gateway
