For DSiware and 3DSware games anyway. What would happen if you bought a DSiware game from the Japanese eshop and then tried to transfer it to a NA 3DS via the 3DS Transfer Tool? Would you then be able to play the Japanese game on the NA system?
And a note to any mods just incase: I'm talking about doing this legally using official Nintendo programs.
