    hey, does anyone know if the 3ds lets you play multiplayer games across different region of the game/console?
    for example, pokemon for ds does not care if you trade with usa-jp, pal-jp, etc, it all works. i have not tried any other games, but still, it is a nice thought that you can play with other people who have the same game yet just in a different language.

    does anyone know or can test if games like, mario kart, new super mario brothers, animal crossing, are/will be able to be played together if one game is ntsc-j and one is not?

    i have a japanese 3ds, and i am perfectly happy with it, i just want to know if i am able to play with people who do not have a japanese 3ds (and i am not able to test)!

    i hope you understand my question, thanks!

    I can confirm Super Street Fighter IV 3D can go cross region local multiplayer as I have them. In Mario Kart 7, you can't do cross region local multiplayer according to some reports. I have yet to find a person with a US version of NSMB2 to try the local multiplayer. Thats all I know.

    For online,
    SSF3D, DOA and Mario Kart can play internationally,
    Mario Tennis is IP locked.

    ah, i should have specified i meant local multiplayer, but sure thanks guys for the help!
    i guess it is game specific, it would be nice if there was a 'compatibility list' although i doubt so many people would want it.
    i said with ds pokemon, you can trade between any regions, but then i remembered korean versions of pokemon can only trade amongst themselves (not sure about online stuff though, just local)

    but sure, thanks :)
