    The cheapest way to get a N3DS for you might be to get a Japanese one. Tenso will forward your package to Mexico if you can order it from AmazonJP.

    If you need a eur/aus one I'm not sure where would ship to Mexico.

    Once GW is released the only issue will be the system menus. You can play games region free. If you got the money to spend try and find an english one or if you are ok with the XL maybe importing from the US would be cheap as well, but you can't get the small one.

    If he got a european one he could probably set it to spanish too. Since the japanese one has no language options, everything will only be in english for pal and NTSC-U games.

    No, confirmed for 9.0. I have one right now.

    Yes, he could. Since he mentioned price was an issue I was just giving him the cheapest option to obtain a N3DS with caveats.

    All the launch ones are likely going to be the same. Just keep an eye out on here, if no one reports getting a 9.3+ one you should be safe to import. They probably won't sell out and you may be able to find a seller on ebay or somewhere that allows international shipping. I don't know of any retailers that ship to Mexico though, there likely are some.

    I'm seeing some N3DS XLs that you could get for around $300 shipped (shipping to Mexico is fairly pricey it seems). You are likely looking at the special editions, look for the standard red and black ones. $300 is still a bit much though.

    Same, from play-asia, Australian, 9.0, regular white, 2 weeks ago.
    The ones they still have are most likely from the same stock, now that EUR and US version have been released, there is no point for them to sell AUS version (they dropped the price from 250 2 weeks ago)
