    Some smart person is bound to tell you to import a japanese 3DS, but I haven't seen this option- I doubt they release language packs

    Well, I know there is Japanese support on the system (it can browse fine through JP sites), though the only way I seem to be able to get the characters is through selecting them but I end up being able nothing to do with it due to a lack of a way to input Japanese characters.

    I'm guessing you can't change the system language to Japanese?

    Well that's a bummer for Japanese people living in Europe.

    no Japanese language/fonts/input in non-Japanese 3DS units. it was removed entirely, save for browsing, which displays them just fine.

    The fact that it's part of the browser and the browser isn't seperate software (it's part of the main 3ds firmware/os) I'd say the fonts are probably there [​IMG] But yes, there is no way to access or use them directly... but I'd think there is no reason why there couldn't be a webpage applet that would allow you to type in english and then it output in kana/kanji... The problem would be finding someone with enough free time and web developing skills to do so.

    Actualy the fonts are there, you can see them in the system if you put a japanese ds game (or a updated r4sdhc.com card :x)

    google have something similar to that on translate.google, but it only converts hiragana to kanji, and you need a spacebar xD

    about changing system language, sorry can't do
    even my ds lite has more options there.
    the only options I have is the languages you can find in the americas (br portuguese, french, spanish & english) since my system region is U

    at least I can type in ?ussian lol doesnt mean I understand it, though

    anyways thx for the answers, comrades ;D

    Nintendo doesn't believe in cross-cultural communications, so they probably thought it best to remove the ability to input japanese characters on non-japanese 3DS. they don't want westerners talking to japanese people, corrupting their minds with western thoughts.

    gahaha.
