    Hi there,

    My friend got me an eShop card in Michigan and gave it to me today. (I live in Canada.) I just realized it says that it's only valid in US only, so I was wondering whether I could use it in the Canadian eShop, or if I have to change the region of my eShop to an American state to load the balance?

    If I change the region, what would happen to my currently downloaded games (I have A Link Between Worlds associated with my account right now)?

    If anyone can give me some insight, I'd greatly appreciate it. I haven't scratched off the code yet, so I'm hoping someone can help me before I do.

    Thanks!!
