Does your 3DS have to be from a specific region in order to register you live there?

    When setting up a 3DS for the first time I dont see countries like Australia, France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, and Japan as a choice. Is that because my 3DS is from the US?

    I guess region locking blocks more than just games from working.

    Yup, my O3DS XL is USA and I'm from the UK and I couldn't choose to live there.

    Thats unfortunate to know.

    Also I've noticed theres a good bunch of countries that still dont have their own maps. Did Nintendo give up on creating maps altogether? I updated my Streetpass Mii Plaza and I'm on 11.0

    Can I complain to Nintendo to add in more maps for the other countries? That seems so odd they left it unfinished like this. Cant possibly be that difficult.

    Yup, I have an European new 3DS and it doesn't even show my country. Weird, but makes it fun to play, I guess.
