I think I read once about how to bypass certain region limitations. I think it had to do with setting your country to Canada, I think. Then, you added funds there and then you could use those funds on the UK Shop.

I'm not sure, really. You're better off searching on the 3DS boards. That's where I read this topic of a Brazilian person trying to buy stuff off the UK shop. Search it over there.

Turns out I have one of Sony's lap dogs following me around on gamefaqs. If you see him, don't feed him. He has a bad temper and is easily upset :D

Well, it's not like you have any other options. Besides, a little research could prove positive for your quest. Who knows, maybe it works on the Wii U eShop as well.

This is, without a doubt, something nintendo has considered. There will not be any loopholes. You're not getting it on a US WiiU... now if you have a European Wii U and you're in the states... maybe

The game comes out in a couple of days in Europe, on the 26th. That promo is their version of OUR Gamestop digital pre-order promotion which allows people to download the game on August 3rd, one day before release.
