    The 3DS is region-locked. Any games would only work with their respective region 3DSes (unless you were using homebrew region free loader with retail cartridges but that's another story.)
    This applies to the eShop too. There are different regions for the eShop, with different region accounts, different region games. You can only transfer between two systems of the same region as all games and everything are region-specific.
