All retail 3DS games are region locked.

EDIT: Wait, do you mean you were trying to play multiplayer? If so then yes, it's region locked for multiplayer too.

Odd way to attempt to get money. Most games have cross region multiplayer. Nintendo is usually pretty good with that also, that's why I'm surprised NSMB2 isn't able to

Fortunately, yes. It sucks that Nintendo has to go out of its way to implement features that we should be trusted to do out of common sense and decency, but I applaud Nintendo for holding the hands of those who cannot resist evil damnation temptation.

I'm guessing the different region coding. Just like with other region games on XBL or PSN, the games can't pick up other region games as being the same game; instead they are basically two completely different games.
