the eshop is now set up so you cant download any demos until you link a Nintendo network ID. but on the preliminary screen it says : YOU CAN ONLY ACCESS ESHOP FOR THE COUNTRY IN YOUR IDS PROFILE AS COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE ANY NINTENDO ESHOP BALANCE THAT DOSENT MATCH THE CURRENCY WILL BE ERASED WITHOUT REFUND IF YOU PROCEED. DELETING AN ID WILL ALSO DELETE ANY ESHOP PURCHASES HISTORY ASSOCIATED WITH IT. that might be a problem. im in Canada, but i want to get "Kokuga", and its not released in canada. DERP UPDATE i decided to just go ahead and try it. a USA eShop card cost me $25 Cad, but i dident pay any taxes (California). so it was about equal. i got Kokuga, and snapped up the US-Only $2 MegaMan sale (Last day, Lucky!). still have $3 left, but theres a Coming Soon game not on the Canadian eShop yet so ill just hang on to the last $3 and wait. i deleted both of them, and it seems you Cannot re-download Kokuga from the Canadian eShop. it will just give you an error prompt. but you can redownload any Available game. so if they ever do release Kokuga in canada later on, only then will we be able to redownload it from canadain eShop. and i guess linking a NNID will effectively DESTROY our ability to change regions. which means we can never get any Demos or free apps anymore. not a huge loss..... the ability to get the most awesome game on the eshop right now, or Miiverse, yeah, real tough choice LOL. oh and CLUB NINTENDO works fine between Canada-USA. it kept the link when i changed region. and the Product Registration Survey for Kokuga showed up in my Club Nintendo account.
