    Particularly with the situation with the whole standard N3DS not coming to NA. Why isn't there any news of people working on a region-freeing the N3DS? There's already one for the OG 3DS, but compatibility the newer models would be more useful.

    Lol.
    I was hoping you wouldn't mention Gateway. I shouldn't have to be forced into piracy and risk being banned from online just to play on an imported a system that should've been an option here from day 1.

    You don't have to use it for piracy though. Can't it back up and play your game from other regions?

    Also welcome to Nintendo. Region locking sucks.

    I guess thats one option. But I swap games with friends. Plus I may need the NA eshop.

    And they get offended when people hack their systems.

    You won't be able to access the US eshop from a JAP 3ds. That's separate from region free patching and requires ARM9 hax and a donor US 3ds from what I've gathered (in which you might as well just use that US 3DS in the first place).

    There is a working one for other 3DS as you said, but the coder said he's not really interested to make it work on N3DS (but it might actually instead be that it can't be done).
