    Hello everyone. I know this is a very specific and tough question, but honestly I do not know where to ask ^_^

    I'm an EURO guys expat living in Tokyo and I'm about to receive EUR New Nintendo 3DS that was gifted to me.

    I've been wondering which flashcart to buy and after looking to the chart I've settled for the GATEWAY 3DS, which seems the most complete. But if I've understood correctly there are 3 methods to set it up (1. Zelda, 2. Cubic, 3. MSET exploit)

    And for all of them I need either a physical EUR-region copy of the game OR a Sky3DS with a backup. But I have none, nor know no one who does :-/

    So I need a shop where I could buy the GATEWAY 3ds here in Tokyo (Akihabara maybe) and get help to install (or pay for the service).

    It's a very longshot, but does anyone know of any? (Or does anyone live here and has a Sky3DS who can help me? I'll get you a few beers for that ^_^)

    well awesome! send me gifts and a waifu! :v *runs*
    ok, seriously XD I don't know much but with cubic ninja you can set up a CFW and don't really need a gateway, I think :v
    But to find them .. you can get CN at eshop , GW or phisical oot, I think you can import them easly? lots of stores should export to japan o3o

    I don't think you'll be able to find a physical shop that sells gateway. Japan is really serious about copyright infringement and circumventing DRM. It isn't China or Vietnam. Try to order a gateway from one of the reseller sites based in Hong Kong or Singapore.

    For the game, you could order it from a european amazon/ebay/game site and have someone you know ship it to you.

    Ordering the deive is very easy, I have already found several internet stores to buy it....

    The difficult part is yo set it up :((

    If only I knew someone with a Sky3DS, I think I could do it myself :-/
