    Does this means I would get to buy a Japanese 3DS?

    Unfortunately, no. No way to bypass the region lock and probably the only way there ever will be is if the 3DS gets hacked. That hasn't happened yet and don't know when or if it will be so for now it's just waiting patiently to see IF something happens eventually.

    That would be the only way, yes.

    The region lock is not going to be bypassed unless we have softmods or flashcarts that run in 3ds mode, sorry to say

    As much as everyone wishes, no, it's impossible at this point in time.

    Probably, I just dont really fit into a category. I will start out as learning for one game, Terry's Wonderland, then spread from there. Eventually i might sell my US 3DS.

    Heh, when it comes to untranslated Japanese games, I'm content with the ability to read kana and sound out the loanwords, though I suppose that only works for retro games which use text more sparingly :D

    He wouldn't be a weeaboo if he legitimately learned Japanese. Unless his source of learning is anime...

    The $200 worth of Amazon.com vouchers sitting unused in my GMail account says "no", there's no way to run import games on a 3DS yet. I can't think of anything else to buy with them. :(

    It's funny...Nintendo has historically hated Europe/UK, but Australia seems pretty much universally hated by everyone.

    Australia is just overpriced in almost all respects.

    If you're considering importing a Japanese 3DS, you may want to look into getting from a Japanese provider, and get a forwarding service to help receive the goods and ship them outside of Japan.

    I recently ordered a black 3DS XL for 17,672 yen from Amazon Japan, which equated to $182.85 in AUD, excluding shipping from a forwarding service like Tenso, where the cost would depend on the weight of the console perceived by them.
