    I recently found a copy of maplestory for the DS in Korean. Would it be region free to play on my 2DS? Or are they like iQue games and need a special language set?

    why wouldn't a ds game/korean ds game work on a 3ds?
    if it was a korean dsi game (if any exist) yes, it should only work on a korean 3ds.
    but if it's just a normal ds game, it should be fine.

    Depending upon what the OP read prior to making the thread the subject of ique (Chinese model of DS) games might have come up and those were locked to the ique, not well and not in any way that matters but enough that without something special you are not going to be able to pop a cart in the average DS.
    There were also a few games that came out in the US and were limited to English despite the internal game files having many more languages, not to mention things like the Advance Wars Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict stuff ( http://gbatemp.net/threads/advance-wars-days-of-ruin-dark-conflict-language-mod.254868/ ) and Go! Go! Cosmo Cops! ( http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/1008/ ).

    well one day I saw an corean DSlite selling for a good price, but I wasn't sure if i would buy it because I don't know if it could read game other than korean? I know we can't change the menu language, right? ( so if a game had another language I could not acess it ? like sonic, if I have the japanese game and have the menu in english I will get a nice undub XD )
    I remeber people with japanese mario kart and pokemon that had problens trying to link with other people with other regions, it in local wireless
