Hello everybody, I'm from Argentina and I'm considering buying a new 2ds xl in Europe and bringing it back here (it costs way less to do it that way), the thing is I'm not sure if I can buy games using my credit card on the eshop from the european console, I haven't found anything concrete regarding this issue, even on this forum (I did the search).
If anybody has any experience with this and has an answer please let me know.
Thanks!

Thanks for the answer! The language it's not a problem, my only concern would be acquiring the games via de online shop from home without the risk of getting banned or something.

I'm from Colombia, during the WiiU era I couldn't buy from the USA shop, It wasn't my card problem because I did bought other things from USA and Europe (it was the Nintendo's account system for USA banning cards from outside that country).
Now I can buy normally from the USA e-shop by adding funds in the new Nintendo Account system and linking my WiiU/3DS account to it (so they share funds).

You should be able to buy from Europe as long as your card allows it. Just keep in mind that changing the country in your account clears all your funds, so make multiple accounts for different regions.

@Aurin they're about 30-50% more expensive in my country, all electronics are like that here, as for the power supply, the current is not a problem, the only thing I'll need is an adapter for the connector, which is easy to get.

Thank you all for the replies!
