Are friend codes cross region?

Just wondering if they're cross region.

I have a friend that lives in Tokyo that owns a JP 3DS. I don't have one yet, but will pick one up soon. Thought I'd see first.

On a side note, anyone know if Animal Crossing will have cross region play?

Yes, you can add any friend code from any region 3DS. AC has pretty much been confirmed to have global wi-fi play enabled.

Friend codes are indeed cross region. As for AC, I'm not sure as it's only available in Japan at the moment. I would presume it will be cross region, though.

I remember the DS version was region locked, so I wasn't sure if they wanted to do the same with the 3DS one.

I have a Japanese 3DS and all my current 3DS friends are from either Canada or the US, so I can verify that FC's are cross region.
