    I'm from Asia(Sri Lanka) and looking for an online store to buy it and ship it here. Any suggests? Also does the region matter? I play on buying a sky3ds+ and wondering does the region matter? I saw some at the website play-asia but all of them are JAP versions of the handheld.

    Thanks in advance

    Hey mate, better have a look on amazon, since you want to use sky3ds+, the region wont be a problem nor matter anyway.

    When you do get the system, please do not update it to the latest firmware. Please follow the guide that nero99 linked above, then you can safely update to the latest version.

    I would really recommend getting a system in a language you can understand, but anyways: https://3ds.guide/region-changing. Just know that after you finish the guide linked above (not this one), you will be able to play out of region games.

    No one has given any kind of confirmation that a system has shipped with 11.3 yet, so you should be good.
