    One's inner self
    DS games are region free
    DSi are region locked to EUR,USA,JAP
    3DS are region locked to EUR,USA,JAP,CHN,KOR

    there is no way around the locks currently
    you have to have that region console to play that region game

    some Japanese games released in China are Chinese region locked even tho they only contain Japanese text

    the 3DS has no Public hack

    DS Flashcards work only in DS Mode, exactly the same as it was on the DSi

    ERROR!
    If you mean april 2014 then yeah maybe. Seeing one this year though is pretty improbable.
