    Hallo :-)

    I have a small question

    I thinking about buying a 3DS in the US this month.
    My question is, will i be able to access the E-shop from Denmark or is it completely impossible?
    And can i use my danish creditcard on my account on the 3ds?
    (BTW i'm fully aware of the fact that the 3DS is region locked, but thats not a problem)

    If you buy a North American 3DS, you're stuck on that eShop. No way around it.

    Not entirely sure about the credit card problem. I think if you buy points at the store, the codes are region free. Not entirely sure.

    You can access the US E-shop from Denmark, I can access the JP E-shop in the US.

    No, you will need to buy US point cards like if you use the PSN of another country, get them off Amazon US or Ebay.
