Topic: I live in Japan but dont speak japanese (which 3ds should I get)?

Posts 1 to 3 of 3


Hello everyone
I moved to Tokyo last week and I will stay here for six yeary...anyway I want to buy a 3ds but as I read on the web if I buy it here I won't be able to conver it to English so is that true ?
and another thing can I change the language of the games such as Zelda:a link between worlds,Bravely default and Pokemon ??

maybe in 6 months my japanese will be good enough to play the 3ds in japanese but right now do you recommend me to get a japanese one or american one?

I also want to ask about the Candian E-shop or the mexican one...If I buy an american 3ds and access the Candian or Mexican E-shop and buy games from Japan with my Japanese credit card ???



You'll want to post in a more active forum section, but I'll give it my best shot.
I recommend getting an American 3DS, really.
You can't change the languages on most Japanese games, although you can for Bravely Default and Bravely Default: For the Sequel. Most Japanese games end up getting localized anyway. As for that last question, no. You'll need to buy American eShop cards, since you can't use a Japanese Credit card on the American store. You can probably them on Play-Asia for the card's value +2-3$. It's how I do it here in the Philippines.
also, you might wanna finish learning english before you start learning japanese, just sayin'

I'm not quite sure what you mean by the Canadian eShop, but it's the same as the American one. Canada and US are almost always considered the same market when it comes to things like movies, video games, etc. Not sure about Mexico.
