If they will be releasing this simultaneously worldwide and people can trade & battle globally then, is it region free?

If the 3DS isn't, the game isn't.

No-one will know until at least a few days before release when reviewers and testers get their copies.

There are region lock codes used with DS and 3DS games, at least one of which denotes a region-free title (though I am yet to see a 3DS game with the region free code). I will not be listing them all, just those which are relevant.

Take Super Pokemon Rumble (Pokemon Rumble Blast for those in the USA as an example):

It's code is:

for the Australian version.

The structure basically follows like so:

Note: Not all titles may begin with LNA-CTR but that's what I have seen so far.

The section 'abc' denotes the Game ID, that is unimportant.
The section 'R' denotes the Region Code:

J - Japan
E - Americas
P - Europe/Australia
K - Korea
O - Other/Undefined (in other words Region-Free, observed only with DS titles so far)

The section 'CNT' denotes the country of distribution:
JPN - Japan
USA - Americas
EUR - Europe
AUS - Australia
KOR - Korea

Note: For DS games, this information was only relevant for DSi enhanced titles such as Pokemon Black/White/Black 2/White 2, as all other DS titles were effectively region free.
But since all 3DS games are locked, this information is even more relevant.
We shall rise again to start anew.
