Question from shinkuakuma
Any way to change the character language?
I find the Japanese voice cooler, but can't seem to change it like the console versions. Is a dlc possible?

I'm guessing you're talking about Street Fighter, you should probably ask in the right place next time.
But to answer your question, you can't use Japanese.

It might be a smart idea to include what game you're asking about.

Since you didn't specify what game you're questioning about, I will answer it as if it was a broad question or as if you are asking about all games. I will also assume that you have an American copy of the 3DS.
In most cases, the answer will be NO simply because you have the American copy of that game. To have it in a different language, you would need a 3DS from that country or region.
WARNING: Do not purchase a game from a different region. It will not function on your 3DS. You would need for ex: a Japanese 3DS to play the Japanese version of a game. It's a waste of money anyway because you'll compatibility issues with almost every software and everything is in Japanese!
I can't speak for every case but most games won't have a language setting- Nintendo published games. Third party games may. Nintendo publications will only have languages that are also within your "'System Settings".
Conclusion if it's a must:
Purchase a Japanese or the region's version of the 3DS and a Japanese or a region's copy of a game. Save money by purchasing it used and off of Amazon, eBay, or any other online trusted websites.
-You must know how to read the language's writing or have had experience with it.

The answer is no, and no.
When games are imported, they are translated and the original (Japanese, usually) language files removed and replaced.
The only exceptions I know of are the Sonic the Hedgehog games (usually are at least Japanese & English text, but still have the imported Region's voice acting, so it only half-way) and the upcoming Pokemon X/Y games (which have been stated and shown to have the option to switch languages in-game).
There is no DLC for language packs, and won't be.
If you want Japanese, you have to buy Japanese. I hate the English voices, so long ago started only buying the Japanese games. It's a little more expensive, but if it's worth it to you, they're not harder to play (and you get MORE game selections...). If you can't read Japanese, there are many guides/translations out there that can help you. I recommend learning Japanese anyway...
