    Hello ! Sorry the title is maybe a bit long, but i wanted to be clear. So I have a question. Can I be ban if, on my french 3ds I go to the Festival Plaza with the "eshop" (Freeshop) version of the game ? Because the game isn't out yet on the French eshop and maybe that could be a problem. Please i need to know, I want to do some trade with some friends ! Thanks for your answers :) !

    Yes you can. The chance to be banned is low, but there will be.
    Remember, this is a permanent ban. So, if you can't wait for a few days and want to risk your entire console then... do it at your own risk.

    First of all Australia has the game already they are in the PAL region same as Europe so in theory you should be fine PAL carts exist thanks to Australia

    That's very plausible. They could easily check your country and then bam... another one got banned.

    Yet again PAL carts exist people will import them to play the game early you won't get banned for playing online if you are in Europe hell I had X early a day early if that counts I haven't been banned.

    But they can see if you have a cart or a eshop version of the game no ? This is why Nintendo could ban people in the first place

    Yeah, nice logic. You wasn't banned before, so you won't be banned now ? The same logic was used by people saying it was safe to play Sun & Moon online early. See where it got them.
    Again, there is always a chance that you'll be banned here. You don't know how Nintendo works. And this ban is permanent. Therefore, if you want to risk your console, then do it. Just remember to prepare for a sudden ban somewhere down the line.

    I'd say it's safer to try after the 23rd.

    You won't be safe, you'll be relatively safer. You can still get screwed.

    C'est totalement faux si l'on préfère les cartouches, les fuites ont poussé Nintendo à remplacer la date du 23 par aujourd'hui.

    That's totally false if you take a cartridge, the leaks led Nintendo to make an anticipated release today, even in France. The stands are out in any shop and supermarket.

    Eh, can I play online NOW with the freeshop version? My 3DS region is US.
    I shouldn't get in any trouble now, right?

    You should get banned as long as you don't go online.

    Or you could buy the game too... ;)
