Question Question: Breaking the region lock on New 3DS?

Hello all!

Forgive me if this is an incredibly newbish question, but...I've been wondering, is it possible to remove the region lock on a new 3DS? In a manner similar to, say-- jailbreaking on an iOS device?

I've seen/heard whispers of this being possible on the older 3DS's, and was really hoping I could somehow import an AU/EU standard sized 3DS, and somehow manage to play North American games on it. Has anyone heard of this?

Also, on a semi-related note: has anyone heard any murmurs of if/when the regular New 3DS might possibly come to America? I haven't had a Nintendo portable in AGES, and was really looking forward to getting the new 3DS upon release, only to find we're stuck with the XL version. Lame.

Thanks in advance for any info/knowledge! Peace!

Sorry, my good man, but we don't allow this kind of talk on the forums. Man, that sounded kinda dictatorish. Google will offer more resources than we ever could tho. Good luck.
