    "Download Play" is a 3DS feature which allows 3DS users to play Local Multiplayer on multiple systems using one copy of a game. Also known as "Single Card Multiplayer".

    Below I have listed the games that are compatible with 3DS Download Play, this does not include DS Download Play with the possible exception of some DSi games which are available on the 3DS eShop.

    I have also included the Local Multiplayer games that are free to download from the eShop, because Download Play and budget conscious Multiplayer go hand-in-hand.

    You know, I was just looking for this list of games.
    Looks like it has been updated since July 18th, 2019
    Never used download and play myself.
    If you are on CFW (custom-firm-ware)
    Can you setup download and play for people outside your region ?

    I can confirm that download play works for out of region games on CFW. As download play for Puyo Puyo Tetris (JPN) works on USA consoles.
