I can confirm that an NA 3DS can absolutely not play Japanese DS games.

Above poster is trolling.

It's not you liking a game, it's you thinking it's so mainstream everyone played it.

Yes, my "special DS game" (if you get what I mean) disguises itself as a JP DS game and it works perfectly fine in my US 3DS.

Any region 3DS can play any region DS games, with the possible exception of the "DSi-enhanced" DS games, or games that may require certain hardware, like Guitar Hero On Tour.

"DSi-enhanced" games are games that take advantage of the DSi's extra features or hardware, like the cameras, and are usually region-locked. There are reportedly some exceptions, like the US versions of Pokemon Black/White/Black2/White2.

I have about 20 Japanese DS games and they all work fine on my 3DS. It is only Japanese 3DS games that are region locked. If any a Japanese DS game does not work, then it is likely rare.
