    On luma and trying to play Japanese version of TriForce Heroes. My console is USA. I've seen mixed things about people getting banned w/ different region cias that don't match their console ID. Anyway to play online w/ other region cias and not getting banned?

    Use Config (Google "Devmenu pastebin") to accept out of region EULA. Go to the EULA option and accept the "FF.FF" eula.

    Does that have to do with banning? or just getting online?

    So is banning based on region frequent? Rare?

    I've played Triforce Heroes EUR, USA and JPN on the same system (that feel when you have fronds everywhere but stupid region locked multiplayer >.>) and I've never run into any problems. I don't believe out of region game bans are a thing. The only time I guess it could be is if you're playing a fan translation online, since you're running modified game files, but I personally haven't had any issues there either (playing MHX English online).

    Actually trying to connect to a USA system running USA game, to my personal USA system running JAP copy. This works online right? but locally it doesn't. Which piece are you saying is region locked? local or online as well?

    The online won't work in your example. USA games will only connect to other USA games. Same goes with PAL to PAL and JPN to JPN. The system region is irrelevant as long as you have the right game region.

    hmm having trouble updating it. Even though it says it's downloading an update, it never actually sticks. Can you not install updates from the eshop for foreign cias?

    You need to install out of region updates using CIA files ^^
