    Hello!
    Im asking if i can import it from overseas, because here in australia we're getting it at 30th of june - don't really wanna wait for it [​IMG]
    so is there any place i can order it from? to get it early ( on the 17th or 19th that is) instead of the 30th ?
    2 weeks later - i mean cmon aussies [​IMG]
    ALSO! is the 3ds really region locked? so is my only option is to wait or buy from the EU since they share the same PAL coding?

    The 3ds is region locked so I'm afraid you're stuck with pal releases.

    The 3DS is region locked for 3DS software.

    Hence, you can only import your games from the PAL region or wait for australian release.

    The wait time doesn't bother me. Will probably just play the real deal on my 64 until it just convinces me there'd be no point shredding another $80 for a game I technically already own.

    Strangely I actually live in the UK but I might import the Australian release 'cause I want the ocarina that comes with it. Well, I might anyway. Depends on my wages. If I can afford it I'll get the proper ceramic one with the platinum band from Songbird Ocarinas. Looks much better. The one I have now is plastic and it sounds like an owl being sexually assaulted by a panda.

    Actually I was just gonna ask my friend Sian in New Zealand to pick one up for me and send it over, send her the money via Paypal or something. Saves time and she won't charge me for importing it [​IMG]

    Damn it! lol
    I was looking all over the net to find a place from where I can import the Aussie version.

    Play-asia is selling the japanese one only, ebay.com.au are showing UK ones -.-.

    Bro, 2 things.

    A) The shipping will probably take a while, you're better off buying on the day.
    B) We're getting an Ocarina in our Special Edition. Why wouldn't you just wait?

    FYI. Singapore isn't a PAL region.

    I have read many many questions about Singapore's gaming region. Many of them said PAL as we used to be a British colony and our TVs use the PAL signal.

    Strange enough, it's not. Video games are not PAL and the DS/3DS are from the US.

    Just FYI though, incase you didn't know [​IMG]
