    You'll need to install custom firmware on the n2DSXL in order to region change it.
    Be forewarned that the moment you create a NNID on that n2DSXL in whatever region it is in, that n2DSXL will be locked in that region's Nintendo eShop.

    If you make a NNID while the n2DSXL is in USA region, your system (more or less) will never be able to access EUR region Nintendo eShop.

    Edit - Forgot to add. If you access USA region Nintendo eShop for the first time, it'll be permanently assigned to that.

    If you want your n2DSXL to be region changed with access to EUR eShop, you'll need to do the NTRboot flashcart method of hacking.
