Is there a way to circumvent the inability to use online features of a freeshop game?

    So, I'm playing Bravely Second from freeshop, but I can't use any of these online/street pass features as I get an error.

    A) I'm playing USA game version on a JP console.

    B) there general Internet features of the console obviously still work for downloading, etc.

    Is it because of the game/console mismatch? is it because it's a freeshop game?

    And if yes to either, is there a way to fix this?

    Certain fairly key features rely on gaining access to the street pass or internet from the game.

    Can you try with any other game either same region or out of region? I just tried with Final Fantasy Explorers US on an EU n3DS and I got online without issues.

    You might need to match the game country with your console's country for online services to work, because my pokemon sapphire works fine. USA game, USA console, FreeShop version.

    I'm not sure if it's A, but freeshop games should work perfectly fine as far as online/streetpass and the like.

    Some games require the EULA of its region to be accepted to enable some features, that could be the problem.
    Maybe you've accepted the JAP's EULA, but not the USA's one.

    I guess I could grab some other game that uses it and check .

    There is a way installing a title, but it's copyrighted so I'm not allowed to link it here.
    If you google "config 3ds EULA" you'll find some information about it.

    for things like this, i still recommend region changing your nand, sure, the eshop wont work, but online features will work without any issue.

    Search for Config on that iso site, and set the EULA to ff.ff with it.

    Between insane and insecure
    CIAs only really have issues with out of region games. Which I think you have to change the entire region of your NAND to fix this issue.
