    I don't know anything about hardmods & stuff regarding updating my Japanese games because my 3DS XL is a Western model.

    Would it be easier to just buy a console? Sure, its more expensive, but I wouldn't put up with figuring out how to modify the firmware of my console.

    Are you using Luma?

    • The region/language emulation feature allows some games which need a specific language to be set to work, and DLCs for foreign games to load. To use it:
      • Create a folder named locales inside luma.
      • Create a .txt file with game's title id as the name (look them up on www.3dsdb.com).
      • Inside the file,
        • Put 3 characters for the region ("JPN", "USA", "EUR", "AUS", "CHN", "KOR", "TWN").
        • Put an empty space.
        • Put 2 characters for the language ("JP", "EN", "FR", "DE", "IT", "ES", "ZH", "KO", "NL", "PT", "RU", "TW").
      • For example, to play Pokémon™ Y in Japanese language and region:
        • Create 0004000000055E00.txt.
        • Put in JPN JP.
        • Save.
