    well this applys for all nintendo games but im posting it here

    when you purchase a game from ninty there is always a coloured triangle on EUR boxes
    and the colour determines the origin and languages on it

    as 3DS games seem to be hard to get e.g.
    Tales of the Abyss
    Naruto Shippuden: the new era

    people have to import to get the game

    but never know what languages are available

    will heres the nintendo colour chart so you know the origion of you game and what langs are on it

    i hope this helps people

    and also stop Ebay fraudsters from saying the game is your region just because it has english on it

    It would have been much simpler if the 3DS wasn't region locked.

    this has nothing to do with region locks
    its purely languages on the different EUR versions

    yeah i noticed alot of people dont show the spine of the case on ebay for this reason

    so they can charge rediculous ammounts just because it has eng and they claim its UK version

    pretty much all ebay versions people are selling is
    Tales of Abyss
    LNA-CTR-AABP-FRA
    which is the french version claiming its the UK
    when the UK code is
    LNA-CTR-AABP-UKV

    i just thought this ould be really helpfull for people trying not get ripped off

    im gonna check all my games tongiht

    if they have a pic of the Game cart tho the code on teh front will end with one of the above codes also

    Even tough I have a USA 3DS, I wonder. Are these triangles printed somewhere on the EU cartridges itself as well?

    no they are not on the cartridge
    but a code is

    USA code would be for tale of the abyss
    LNA-CTR-AABE-USA

    where Europe ones are
    LNA-CTR-AABP-XXX (XXX = one of the codes under Name of teh above table)
