I read somewhere this is possible? Anyone know how (reliable it is)? Please PM me. Thanks.
Uhhh... this isn't possible.
I thought it was, anyone else?
It is possible to change a New 3DS's region.
It is not possible to convince Nintendo to change your 3DS's region.
Feel free to wait for other replies if you want.
I asked Nintendo to change my region too and they just said hack it yourself and referred me here.
Any more replies?
I read it was possible and I would think that it is as well. However, there is no way to know for sure, even if someone replies and says it is. Please PM me if you know how.
a nintendo customer service person referred you to gbatemp...?
I *think* that reply is a joke, not sure though. Anyone who has information how to do this, please PM. Thanks.
The forum has a search function for reasons like this. Cearp actually has the goods on doing this since he wrote the thread, but I believe it was for OG3DS. Hope that's enough information to get you started in your quest for knowledge.
I'm not 100% however I think you may be referring to something else. Also, I *think* Cearp did something else, irrespective of OG3DS or not.
If you have any thread links to what you're referring to, they would be appreciated.
Anyone who has information on how to convince NOA to region change a NN3DS, please PM. Thanks.
I don't *think* NOA will *ever* allow you to region change your 3DS, I *think*.
Well it wasn't Cearp like I originally thought, but searching is the best way. Here's a broken link, please learn to be self sufficient:
That link is for the Old 3DS.
The thread for making Non-XL New 3DS's is here, but it's not easy (and Powersaver knows about it, because he's posted there).
Nintendo of America won't change the region for you.
Telling them you bought the wrong region and want to change your unit for another region,
is more likely than them changing the region for you.
Warning: Spoilers inside!
(you can go ahead and tell them you wanted to buy a EU region one because you bought the NA one in US when you went for a holiday,
and you didn't know it will be region locked.
by that reasoning, your chance is now 5/100)
chances are you won't get a new unit.
I had to bring in my unit (O3DS XL) to the maxsoft main office in singapore,
just to change a unit because the screen has some defect, and that was within the week I bought it.
To get a different region unit, they have to ship one to you,
and I don't think that is going to happen..
go and try.
you could always use GW + Emunand on your N3DS,
and apply Cearp's region changing theory.
I have 3 regions now. LOL.
Why would Nintendo change the region on a machine that comes in a box which says "For sale and use only in (insert your region here)"?
Do you think they are going to feel bad for you because you bought a grey import unit? The reason the 3DS is region locked is part of a Nintendo strategy to do with controlling the way their product is sold and used around the world. They are not going to just turn around and say "Oh sure, we can fix that for you".
Either you are extremely naive, or your trolling.
Noa doing region free? the guys that started and was ironfist about region locking? ahahaha good joke
Queno138, just wondering if there is a reason you say 5% chance in your 'spoiler' rather than 0% (or 0.000000001%)?
In case anyone is interested, no one has PM'd me so far and please still PM me.
I made it 5 % on the basis that you could call up a customer service, speak to a manager Nd They decide to do "service recovery", if you Actually dare to escalate the matter.
I doubt that anyone will PM you, simply Because Nintendo is famous for region lock.
Even in their coding, region free doesn't exist. (I think it was mentioned on 3dbrew)
At best would be third party hacks/patches, Which They don't recommend.
Powersaver, assuming someone did somehow know how to do this, why would they PM you instead of posting in this thread?
Because, if there is a way, perhaps the person who knows how doesn't want everyone here to know about it.
I like to think NOA will eventually release the smaller NN3DS, however people holding out for the smaller NN3DS may have moved onto other consoles by the time its released, which would be poor timing on NOA's part. So I hope it's released soon, however 'Nintendo Direct' didn't mention anything.
