    I'm in America and I was pleasantly surprised/disappointed to hear that they already released BD in English, which I've waited over a year for, but in ENGLAND or EU and not AMERICA! Seriously wtf it's sposed to go Japs, NA, EU, that's always how it's been! lol. So I've ordered games off of the JP PSN store and even played JP only online PSP games like Grand Knights History using Japanese Proxy Servers, so I imagine there's someway to get into the EU E-Shop right? Youtube doesn't have anything when I go to look at videos so I thought I'd ask you edumecated colleagues of mine! =D There's gotta be a way to do this right?

    3DS is region locked, that's why you can't play European games.
    And for the same reason we have different eShops.
    The only way to play Bravely Default is to get a Gateway and a 3DS on 4.5 Firmware and the game from Europe/Japan.

    Sadly this isn't Sony we're talking about here, it's Nintendo. They're good at making sure that stuff can't happen that can happen on other company game systems ;)

    how do you find out what FW you're using? Can't find it in settings. I tried changing my location to british virgin islands or something maybe I can complain that I can't get my EU crap for a British territory lol

    The Virgin Islands,[4] commonly known as the British Virgin Islands (BVI), is a British overseas territory located in theCaribbean to the east of Puerto Rico

    >Puerto Rico
    >America

    3DS firmware is in the 3DS settings, look better for it.

    It's impossible unless you have a Japanese or European 3DS.
    It's maybe possible with the gateway flashcard but I've not read up on how the gateway works but there should be a ton of info in the 3ds hacking thread.
