Hoping it isn't either, but late DSi-enchanced games were region locked, meaning Nintendo could be intending to region lock all future games.

I really don't see why it would be. Outside of games you download, Nintendo's handhelds have never been region locked...

...Although why on earth would you import it when it will likely be out here by Christmas?

If Japan gets first dibs on this it will be an instant import. I don't care about how much more it will cost. I want this puppy ASAP!
