I'm not from the U.S. so am unaware of any retailers aside from Play Asia, however yes, Gateway should give you region free when released. We don't know when support for the New 3DS is going to be released, though.

Region free cartridge isn't worth it, in my opinion.

Boot 3ds > launch exploit > insert gateway cart > select gateway classic mode > eject gateway cart > insert retail game.

Dump your game and play it in Gateway mode.

I love you gateway team, but for the love of god, remove your stupid DRM limitations!!!

I've been looking for the best/cheapest option to import one myself.

There are several retailers you can use that seem reputable to import one to the US
Play-asia (expensive, but reliable it seems)
Nippon-Yasan (cheaper, but can be slow by some user's comments)
Eurotaku (haven't seen much on them, but are about the same price to import as nippon-yasan)
Amazon JP, with tenso as package forwarder (Might be cheapest option overall, but tenso requires you submit ID to verify address so that may hold things up a bit)
Amazon US (Prices are a bit high, but you can use amazon credit if you have it and amazon is typically pretty good with handling issues. Probably $20-40 higher than nippon-yasan and it still ships from Japanese seller anyways)

i went with the AUS N3DSXL from Play-Asia as the Japanese version doesnt have the option to change the language to english. I ordered on a Friday night and by Monday afternoon I had it delivered.

    BigOnYa @ BigOnYa: @salazarcosplay No, its not powerful enough, but most n64 games have been ported to 3ds natively.
