1SaveLineWed 9th Oct 2013 Hey guys, I'm very new here and I have a question to ask... Last year, around December 2012 I bought a Nintendo 3DS XL in the USA. I knew that 3DS consoles are in fact Region locked and my console is in NTSC U/C format... Now, I've decided that I wanted to buy Pokemon X from the eShop when it comes out... However, I am currently living in New Zealand, a PAL country. And whenever I go into the Nintendo eShop, the prices I see are all in US$ which is fine by me. (NTSC U/C prices are ridiculously cheaper than PAL) And so, I wanted to ask if I buy, download and play Pokemon X from the eShop, will it work on my console even if my internet connection is in New Zealand? The Nintendo eShop currently on my console is in a North American Region. (I'm quite positive as the price for Pokemon X is $39.99 which is almost around the same price as other retailers in the US, and the price for Pokemon X in New Zealand is around $70.) I saw somewhere that only US Internet connection can buy US games and that only a US credit card would work on a US eShop. I have a VISA Credit card, and when I checked on the eShop, they accepted top-ups using VISA. Please tell me if I need to explain clearly, since this is how I can explain it in the simplest way.
