Edit: Can a mod change my topic title if possible? By including the words "online" and "region". That way it will be easier for people who also have the same question to find this topic. I couldn't find a clear answer on this other than one sorta vague topic. If I wanna play my NA version of MH/Smash4 with a New 3DS online, does it matter which region the console is? I will be using Gateway and waiting for support. I ask because I seem to remember having issues trying to play MH4 JP online with my current console about half a year ago. Is there anything else I need to take into consideration? Other than the system being in Japanese. Will it be able to play ok with my NA console via local? JP consoles are being sold at about half the price NA/EU consoles are being sold where I live and easier to get, which is why I'm considering it.
