Hello. I'm about to buy a Japanese 3DS, the Limited Edition Shin Megami Tensei IV model, to be exact. I want to run Gateway or another flascart on it so I can play US region games (the English version of SMTIV, mainly) on it too. But I don't know which firmware this 3DS has, and from what I understand I need 4.5 (or 4.1). From what I found by searching online, I can conclude the US version of Shin Megami Tensei IV is firmware 4.5, but I can't find anything on the Japanese version. Is there any way to find out (I can't find a ROM of the Japanese version of the game, by the way), and if I do find out, can I assume the 3DS in the package is the same firmware as the game? I'm also wondering about eShop functionality. According to the Gateway website, it works with the eShop. But can I get on the American eShop even though it's a Japanese 3DS and I'm in Europe myself, and download and use American DLC for my American Game ROM? Thanks a lot for any help/info in advance.
