Quick question about Nintendo eShop

#1AvatarSTPosted 2/9/2013 12:02:14 PM
Okay, so I'm in Argentina and not all games are easy to find on retail.

I'm thinking of getting a 3DS. Is it possible to access the Nintendo eShop from here if I set the region to US or something like that (similar to PSN account)?

I am certain if you have a NA 3DS it will connect to the NA eShop, due to the region lock settings, I wouldn't be able to connect to the sShop in Japan by changing my region to Japan, for example.

there are some limitations to using a different region for the e-shop.
you can only set an e-shop region to one within the region of your 3DS(so you can't set a European 3DS to the US e-shop, but you can set it to UK)
you can only add money through e-shop cards from the same region(probably even the same country) as your e-shop setting.
and depending on the region of your 3DS, credit cards may not work either.
