    I have a Japanese N3DS, but I see that if a US game has to go online to the store it can't. With Luma can you change the eShop region easily or is it one of those things where you have to reformat your device in order to be able to do it?

    You have to change the region of your 3DS to change the region of the eShop.

    Thanks didn't notice that. But will all the warning and caveats written there, it seems more trouble than it's worth for what I want to do. I can always get a Japanese image of the game instead if there's something that particular game has to access the eShop or online for.
