    In simple terms, no. Europe only as your 3DS is EU region. Sorry.

    So do I have to sell the 3DS?
    The flashcarts work in both firmware, Europe and America or they work only in specific region?
    Thanks again,

    I think that the DSi flashcarts that work on 3DS aren't region-locked.

    But the 3DS games yes, they are locked
