I want to get Last Window: The Secret of Cape West, which was only released in the UK. Would I be able to play it on my NA 3DS? What about my NA DS original (fat).
move all remaining groundhog mercenaries to the front lines. Have sheep troopers squadrons A and B flank the cows. They're using DC-17 hoof blasters.

Depends on the DS game. If the game is DSi enhanced, then it is region locked. If the game is a regular DS game, then it is region free. Thus, you should be able to play it on both if I'm not mistaken.

If it doesn't have TWL on the cart at the bottom, it'll work on any. Last Window isn't a TWL game.

Cool, what does TWL mean?

I believe it just signifies that a game is DSi Enhanced.

Keep in mind a DSi enhanced game will still work on a different region Lite or original DS (though without the DSi features of course).

Just booted up my copy of Last Window on my USA 3DS and it works fine, so no need to fret.

Its such a good game too...I may as well play it again while I have it on.

Yea, I've played it before, I just never finished it. I um.... rented it..... yea. I've never ordered an out of region game and I figured this would be a good start.
