    OK so I'm gonna import a Japanese N3DS cos the US isn't getting the regular sized one

    I have an original 3DS XL right now and I was wondering:

    • Does system transfer work cross-region?
    • If yes, what happens to all eshop purchases with my NNID?
    • if not, what do you reckon I should do? Have a different account on each 3DS (yuck), or copy my 3DS XL's emunand to my Jap N3DS? I'm not even sure if that'd work since 2 systems would then be bound to the same NNID. Or maybe emunand is region-locked? Idk
    • Forgot to mention but you've probably figured I'm equipped with a Gateway 3DS
    So yeah what do you think is the best course of action?

    no, system transfer is region locked :)
    you can't use a nand dump from a 3ds on a different 3ds (at least yet)
